Manchester City Council’s continuing Ecocide.

Save Alexandra Parks Trees

With a film crew from BBC Northwest Tonight, around 80 local people of all ages and backgrounds who had gathered to protest against the tree felling, peacefully entered the felling site and succeeded in bringing tree felling works to a halt.IMG_1345Sadly, all 50 of the healthy Sycamore trees that made up the avenue along Claremont Road have now been cut down. But hundreds more trees are under threat.

IMG_1348The picture below shows how this avenue looked just a few days ago. Many of those present were very upset about the devastation.

BBC Northwest Tonight are featuring the story this evening on BBC 1 at 6.30pm.

Some of those present have this evening set up camp to continue their protest. We wish them the best of luck.
