The HS2 is destroying trees and ancient woodland that provide food and shelter for various wildlife as well as eradicating any means of recovery. Today also marks the first day of the second lockdown in the U.K, however, work on the HS2 continues and the workers are not distancing themselves from each other. This (in keeping with the current government guidelines) is breaking every law possible the government themselves have put into place, including failing to obtain the proper environmental surveys required prior to actually felling any trees needed for the space to work. This multi-billion pound project is funded solely by the taxpayers and is grossly unnecessary, but also tremendously dangerous leaving peopel jobless and homeless.

The HS2 must be stopped.
