‼️URGENT HELP NEEDED‼️
We are very concerned over the risks being taken in the attempted eviction of WAR Camp.
Heavy machinery is being used in VERY close proximity to a tunnel which they have not yet mapped out.
Swinging crane & cherry-picker boom are operating overhead, debris is being dropped from a great height with danger of destabilising the earth.
As you can see from the livestreams HS2 Bailiffs aren’t caring for our protestors.

Message from WAR camp:
Finally- lawyers are going into the defense of Wendover Active Resistance camp (& therefore the risk HS2 poses to the aquifer which supplies London's drinking water) with real tenacity.
There's also a 30 minute job that everyone can do to help! (1)
The council have justified their decision to evict based on allegations that residents of the camp are violent. These will be challenged directly. The lawyers have asked for as many emails as possible to be sent to the council explaining clearly that ... (2)

This weekend we are continuing to clean up the riverside camp at Denham. All help is gratefully received and massively appreciated.
We always try to stick to the motto "leave no trace."
Sometimes, for example when violent evictions take place, we don't have the opportunity
to tidy up as we like. (Sometimes we don't even have time to collect our own personal belongings!)
We know this is then used as a criticism against us. Often by vested interests in the right-wing press or HS2's publicly funded PR accounts on Twitter.

📢Less than 24 hours left to block the government's new anti-protest bill! #ActNow & join us to stop this from happening. Without protest, women would not have the vote; people of colour would not have equal rights; we would not have declared a climate emergency....
...& many of the ancient woodlands currently being protected by #StopHS2 activists would already have been felled. Protest is vital in democracy. This new bill represents a dangerous & frightening lurch towards authoritarianism & fascism....

BREAKING #StopHS2 News: In the last few minutes, #Lazer has voluntarily left the tunnel. It is understood that in exchange for coming out, he secured concessions from the bailiffs, which have been delivered to the brave tree protectors remaining in the tunnel....
...These include lights and various sanitary and hygiene products. He is currently being checked by paramedics but is thought to be in good health after what can only be described as a legendary stand against the #HS2 gravy train. Further updates to follow.

Read below @MayorofLondon@SadiqKhan's response to an email, urging him to #StopHS2 & protect the lives and rights of the protesters underground at Euston. Clearly shows his brazen lack of care and denial to the present situation happening in the city he is meant to represent:
"No matter what your views are on the construction of #HS2, the excavation of makeshift tunnels at Euston is not a safe way to protest. These protestors are putting themselves, #HS2 staff & the general public in danger, as well as increasing pressure on the emergency services ...
