Have just spoken to someone from the protest, 100 trees have been chopped down today but it stopped when the two protesters locked on and stopped the bulldozers. They need help urgently - the two of them are now fighting Costain and Tarmac alone. 

No camp has been set up yet. If it's not done within the next day or 2 it could be TOO LATE! Can anyone get there??

Earlier reports of number of trees is wrong, there's over 1,000. The 100 down today were newer ones, another day or so and they'll be starting on the Ancient Woods, Oak, Beech, Scots Pine, huge, beautiful trees.

The site, St Davids Wood, is 5 minutes from Blackwood town centre. If going by train/bus, from Cardiff Station bus number 26 from bay C1. Once there call 07811 948764 or 07708 420446 to find them.

Background to the protest (not updated 

This was in The Western Mail yesterday: 4072&method=full&siteid=50082 

'Tis a bad time for this to happen with Nine Ladies and Sherwood both in trouble, but if anyone knows anyone who could help please pass this on.  Please pass this on anyway!
