Some of us spent all day trying to resist the removal of some beautiful, mature London Plains trees near Paradise Square.
Sadly they cut down three of them - but we managed to slow them down a lot; councillor Deborah Glass Woodin was arrested and Bruce, a local activist, remains up one of the trees.
If you can get down there NOW to support Bruce - or if you fancy some climbing - that would be great. Apparently, they're planning an all-nighter TONIGHT and trying to get people to come and help out on a rota-basis.
Bruce and friends (not the cops, mind) are on the corner of Norfolk Street, near Castle Street; around the back of the Westgate Centre near the multi-storey carpark. Map here: http://openstreetmap.com/?mlat=51.75055&mlon=-1.2615&zoom=16
There are still plenty of trees that need defending.
