We are expecting eviction this winter/autumn!
Bilston Wood- Anti Road Protest Camp near Edinburgh
6,7,8th Sept - Budefest!
2 or 3 days of riotous PUNK including Oi Polloi (tbc), Social Insecurity, Eat Yer Greens, plus many more, even some bands from England...
27,28th Sept - Work/Action weekend
Come down and help sort out site and have fun, meet people etc. You know it's a good idea.
Also, if you'd like to come down and stay, your presence would be greatly appreciated, especially during mid-September cause loads of people are going to a festival, and I'm not (boo-hoo)
The planned road is a private project backed by BIOTECH (famous for cloning sheep)and other companies. It is a bypass to the A701, 8 miles south of Edinburgh, at Bilston near Penicuik.
The local woodland is in the way & will be chopped down. Senseless destruction of our natural heritage for the sake of profit maximation.
In June 2002 a camp was set up to make a visible & radical point that we oppose the plans of Biotech and the council.
Directions from Edinburgh city centre - 37/37a from Princes St/Nicolson St. Get off 1st stop in Bilston. Go through metal gate opposite VW showroom.
