Come to the national Rally Against Road-Building
The big news this week is that, on Saturday 13th July at Crowhurst in East Sussex, we're holding our first national rally to raise the alarm about the huge programme of new road-building.
Come along and join campaigners from across the UK for a rally and walk along the route of the most destructive new road being built in England - the £100 million Bexhill-Hastings Link Road.
Campaign for Better Transport has already exposed more than 200 new roads planned by national and local government, costing more than £30 billion. Just this week, the Prime Minister has been boasting to businesses about his "very aggressive and packed Roads Programme" - see his answer to the fourth question after his speech here - and we need him to hear that these damaging plans will be fiercely opposed.
Come to this unique event and:
enjoy music and poetry, food and drink and activities for all ages
go on guided walks through the historic Combe Haven valley – what could be a last chance before the proposed road changes it forever
learn more about the campaign to save the valley, and about plans for more than 200 new roads around the country
meet campaigners and speakers from national and local groups
get information about how you can take action to help stop a new roads programme becoming a national disaster
Supported by national groups:
The rally is organised by Roads to Nowhere alongside local campaigners Hastings Alliance and the Combe Haven Defenders.
It is being supported nationally by Greenpeace, Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), the Wildlife Trusts, RSPB and by other groups in the area including CPRE Sussex and BLINKRR - Bexhill Link Road Resistance.
Help us spread the word
We'll be updating both these pages regularly with more info about buses from other areas, speakers and other activities on the day.
