We're echoing a call for help at the site of the planned Weymouth Relief Road.
The Government approved this scheme in October, despite the fact it will cut through an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and an ancient woodland (Two Mile Coppice).
After Dorset County Council begun moves to start work, last Friday 3 protesters scaled trees at Two Mile Coppice, a 400 year old woodland threatened by the site. One lone protester is holding out at the moment, and we'd urge everyone who can lend any kind of support to get down there.
More information about the local anti bypass campaign can be found on their website, their news page being here.
It seems that Direct Action is making a return in the fight against road schemes, and it's not before time. The Youtube videos we have posted above and below the text show a local BBC news report about the protests, and a chilling virtual reality flythrough of the planned bypass.
In Longdendale, all we have so far is a VR version of the bypass. You can rest assured, we will have Direct Action as and when it is necessary.
