No M11 Chestnut Tree 25th Anniversary Gathering on George Green
Friday, 7 December, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pmFree
25 years ago on December 7th 1993 the police and contractors destroyed the 250 year Sweet Chestnut Tree on our village green an act of pure violence, the protest itself was peaceful. People were still living in the tree and escaped injury, how who knows. Other protesters were injured by police action that day by just being there and getting in the way. We lost the fight to stop the road but made sure it was not going to be easy for them to complete. We made many friends among the eco warriors who came to help us and will be forever grateful. Many stayed to help save the Evergreen Field from destruction.
