> More tree-defending today (Sun 16 Dec)!
> Activists occupied trees again yesterday (Sat 15 Dec) in Bexhill &  
> Combe Valley. Trees defended, trees felled, 2 arrests – one for  
> “aggravated trespass” (now charged and released), the second for  
> not giving their name and address to a police officer (which they  
> have no legal right to demand under most circumstances). Activists  
> were able to stop some of the trees in Bexhill from being chopped  
> down, though contractors were able to chainsaw quite a large a  
> number there (see film here). No trees were felled at Adam’s farm  
> yesterday however, which was also being defended.
> We believe the felling will continue today and are asking folk who  
> are willing to occupy trees (or support others in doing so) to go  
> to Bexhill early today (Sunday 16 December), intersection of  
> Woodsgate Park and London Rd (see map here). Public transport to  
> Bexhill is ropey, with the first train not leaving until 8.19am  
> (!). Buses appear to be even later.
> People are also required at the disused railway on Adam’s Farm in  
> Crowhurst, to prevent a move on the trees there (see map here).  
> Trains leave from Hastings at6.58am, 7.58am etc…
> If you have a car and are able to ferry folk around then please  
> contact us on 07926 423 033. All other enquiries, same number.
> We need your donation!
> Now that work on the road has begun in earnest, we need your help  
> to keep the campaign afloat. Ropes, harnesses, waterproofs, phone  
> bills, printing costs etc... all cost money and our bills are going  
> to mount rapidly. Please support the campaign to save Combe Valley  
> & Stop the Road by making a donation - large or small - through our
