The campaign to stop the private development of Packers Field by Bristol City Academy is still being fought. Details below of an awareness-raing event this coming Sunday.
Packers Field in Whitehall is the only large green open space available for use by people living in Easton, Whitehall and Greenbank. It has been used freely and without restriction by local people for many years, for a wide range of informal activities. Open spaces like Packers are vital to the health of individuals and the community as a whole.

Lets force Landsvirkjun to face up to what we think of their destruction of Iceland for their own personal profit and that of multinational corporations.
Earlier this summer an illegal roadstone quarry at Back Dale Quarry, on Longstone Edge Nr Bakewell was targeted by saboteurs.
The quarry owned by Bleaklow Industries, was being mined by Merrimans (Merrimans, Gleabe, and Stancliffe - 9 Ladies - are the main companies ripping up the Peak Park).

today we finally received the high court verdict regarding the classification of the quarries at lees cross and endcliffe. the quarries are now (or still) officially dormant. This means that the quarries cannot re open until the peak park have agreed a set of working conditions for them. Stancliffe Stone still have the permission to quarry from 1952, and the peak park still have the power to revoke the permission, or to impose such restrictions that the re opening of the quarries would be financially unviable. Our protest site must and will continue to exist in order to protect our beautiful hillside (in the second most visited national park on the planet), as it is still quite possible that this awesome natural heritage of ours could be destroyed. Please dont let the media convince you that this is a victory on our behalf. Please send your comments on the proposals to re-open Lees Cross and Endcliffe quarries to The Peak Distric National Park Planning Authority and Lord Edward Manners of 'Haddon Hall' (who owns the land) or come and visit our protest community. Thank you (and a happy nearly-solstice) from the 9-ladies collective! x x x
On friday afternoon, the residence of Snienton and surrounding areas of Nottingham, came to protest against an Incinerators expansion plans. The company, Waste Recycling Group Ltd [WRG], are preparing a planning application for expansion, and in support of this, had organised an exhibition at The Masson Suite in Nottingham County Football Club. We went along to see it, and to make our feelings known.
We're urgently seeking some last minute assistance in the ongoing saga of British GM animal feed imports. This is a short, easy action for everyone.
For those of you who haven't been following the activities of the 'Fair Price for GM Free Milk Coalition', the story in brief is that last year a group of independent farming unions and grassroots campaigners got together to try and target the use of GM animal feed in the UK. The idea was to start by encouraging Sainsbury's to keep its four year commitment to phase out GM feed.
