EXTINCTION Rebellion South Lakes is to continue its activism through online by participating in an online campaign against HS2.

XR south lakes have recently cancelled all events and demonstrations during the Covid 19 lockdown, however activists are pushing for action on social media under the hashtag #NHSnotHS2.

XR said: "XR South Lakes recently received this request to participate in this online campaign.

"We have summarised the main points here and are sending this request to you in the hope that you may be in a position to get involved in the social media campaign or the remote action campaign against current developments in the HS2 project.

"Whilst most of the country has been on lock-down, HS2 project is carrying on.

"Risky Business is an online campaign aiming to halt (at least temporarily) this hugely destructive and carbon-intensive project".

XR encourage people to get involved in social media to highlight risks with continuing to work on HS2 sites.
