ALF/ELF sabotage road construction at Combe Haven

reported anonymously:

"Combe Haven. 7th-8th January 2013.

Acting in solidarity with the campaign against the Bexhill-Hastings link road, activists sabotaged contractors attempts to force local wildlife to migrate away from the site of the proposed road.

Wire mesh and wooden doors covered all but one entrance to each badger sett in the area, in an attempt to encourage the badgers to move into human-built setts prior to mating season. The mesh and doors surrounding the badger setts have since been dismantled to encourage the badgers to stay in their habitat of choice.

Newt-nets have also been set up by contractors with the same goal in mind, plastic sheeting staked along the route of the road a foot below and above ground, forcing newts, insects and other small animals out of the area. Thus these nets have also been attacked, torn out of the ground and
smashed.

Not only do these actions allow wild creatures to exist where they choose, but slows the build of the road, as the contractors attempt to greenwash their mindless destruction of animal habitats and local natural environments by 'sparing the animal's lives' in this manner and cannot proceed with the road building until they say they are certain that the local wildlife has migrated away from the site of ecological destruction.

After witnessing the surveyors dismay upon noticing the trashed nets, these acts of sabotage will only continue and increase in their severity until those who choose convenience and profit over life have suffered at least equally in their fight for the absolute control and destruction of the natural world.
