Having never demonstrated about anything in my entire life I now seem to be coming addicted to it!
Yesterday I joined a group of protesters against the HS2 rail link. I have to be honest here and say my motives were not only because I disagree with the destruction of green belt land. I also wanted to see how they organised their demo and also to see if some could be persuaded to join our one against the stadium proposals next Saturday! But I ended up getting quoted in our local paper’s on-line news!!
It’s all rather un-nerving to be at the centre to something so vital. I just hope we get the 1000 people we want. Clearly we are going to need them as the ‘developer’ has spent the last week producing wonderful artistic impressions of his proposed development which are very seductive. It’s War!! And if I have my way the side I’m on will win and our precious, active airfield will survive and not be concreted over!
We made another video the other day to show up some more of the flaws in the so called plan!
