HAPPY NEW YEAR. Help make 2011 the year we bury the HS2 White Elephant.
Mr Cameron has got one thing right with his Big Society message, if you want something done, you have to pitch in and help. Thatís what SNAG is asking you to do. 2011 is the critical year with consultation scheduled to start in February and last for at least 6 months. That means we have to construct the key messages against HS2 and deliver them in the most powerful ways we can. We must use the local media and parish councils to ensure that everyone is kept fully informed and active in continuing to protest. But probably the most important activity will be directed at the County and District Councils, these hold the key to rebutting Hammondís only argument of NIMBYISM. It is essential that we not only get the councils along the route to say no to the HS2 principle, but also we need to send that message out to all the other counties in the country so they recognise that they will have to pay for HS2 with even more savage cuts in public spending.
To do this we need help, YOUR HELP. Organising local media campaigns, working with Local Authorities to recognise the financial and local transport implications of HS2, helping to construct the rebuttal of HS2 to be delivered in the consultation process. If you have the skills or just a desire to help out, please make this your new yearís resolution to join SNAG and help us stop the HS2 madness.
