HS2 is the most expensive and environmentally destructive infrastructure project in UK history. HS2 is set to destroy 108 ancient woodlands and almost 700 wildlife sites. As well as costing the UK tax payer well over £200 billion, the high speed rail project is already causing extensive and irreversible damage to the environment and will be a vast new source of carbon emissions for at least the next 120 years, as well as enabling mass airport expansion.

The Government must scrap HS2 immediately, instead using the money to improve and invest in the NHS, existing networks and local infrastructure and projects that adapt to the reality we face in this COVID-19 pandemic and Climate and Ecological Emergency. 

In order to take action we will need to purchase equipment to make it happen. Money donated will go towards safety equipment such as harnesses and ropes, alongside food and water.
