Dr Larch Maxey explains the ecological destruction of HS2 from the London Plane trees in which he lived, which have since been felled by HS2. As Markey explains, HS2 will produce 11 million tons of carbon from concrete and building materials alone. This does not include carbon released from massive soil disturbance and tree clearing that has not been factored in. HS2 is an ecocidal project created at a time when we need to stop all emissions.
HOW TO STOP HS2
Whilst we do need people at camps, we also need people helping to coordinate, organize, market, plan and collaborate with the protection camps, actions being organized by various other groups, and discuss strategies on how to stop HS2. We need help with making the UK more aware of how HS2 is destroying our environment and wasting taxpayers' money.

TAKE ACTION AGAINST HS2
This means organising decentralised non-violent direct actions targeting HS2 Ltd./DoT/ Contractors/Sub-Contractors/National Eviction Team (NET) with your local group/affinity group or HS2 Rebellion community.
How? – Through anyway you wish such as compound gate blocks, mass trespass, lorry surfing, machinery surfing, criminal damage, die-ins, creative performance, tree occupations, hunger strikes, tax strikes, swarming etc… you get the idea!
All actions should be applying the HS2R action agreement, well researched on the risks involved and full legal briefings communicated beforehand with all rebels.
Note: Please check the Covid-19 guidelines before taking action and always wear a mask.
JOIN A PROTECTION CAMP
These protections camps provide resistance to HS2. But more importantly, they have also reduced the environmental damage being caused by HS2. There have been a countless amount of times where contractors will clear woodland on land that doesn’t belong to HS2.
Note: The camps were set up by people from the local communities who are being impacted by HS2. Many camps have been around for many years and are independent of each other. No camps belong to any particular organization or campaign.
Please do visit the camps to see the reality of what HS2 is doing to our environment. You can visit for either a few hours or stay for months.
