A MAJESTIC 350-year-old oak tree in Steep was chopped down just hours after a deal was struck to save it.
Shocked villagers looked on in horror as contractors reneged on an agreement to save the landmark oak, which has stood in Ashford Chace since the time of Oliver Cromwell, by clambering up into the highest branches and hacking it down last Tuesday afternoon.
With the threat of development on Titnore Woods, one of the two remaining semi-ancient woodlands left on the West Sussex coastal plain fast approaching, now is the time to rise up and resist the destruction of our natural environment by corporate greed.
The annual Newbury Bypass Walk commemorating the fight to stop the Newbury Bypass will take place on Sunday 10 January 2010 at 11am. Anyone who was involved in the campaign are welcome to attend.
climate actions - tar sands, Santas at City Airport, Carbon Trading Exchange camped, Santas at BT (updated)
On Monday 14th of December, campaigners from the UK Tar Sands Network and Camp for Climate Action protested outside Canada House in London and shut down Pall Mall Street in Trafalgar Square to protest against Canada’s attempts to derail the climate change negotiations in Copenhagen.
A NEW protest has been called by downland campaigners in Worthing, West Sussex.
They are fighting plans by Worthing council to sell off land next to Iron Age hill fort Cissbury Ring.
The campaign's efforts have forced the authority to announce it is rethinking its plans, but protesters are warning this is just a ruse.
January Regional Gatherings
There will be no national gathering in January. Instead, we are encouraging neighbourhoods to hold their own regional gatherings in advance of a three-day national gathering in February.
Join people from across the spectrum of the British peace movement for a weekend of exploration, celebration and empowerment - learning from other movements, struggling with challenging issues, and creating greater cohesion and solidarity in a segmented peace movement.
