Protesters Against Planned UK High-Speed Railway Hide in Tunnel as Eviction Begins

Enforcement agents moved in on January 27 to evict protesters against a high-speed railway who’ve been camped near London’s Euston Station.

The protest group, HS2 Rebellion, said four campaigners were in a 100-meter tunnel at the protest camp on the morning of January 27. One of them recorded video from inside the tunnel as they said the attempted eviction was beginning.

Another video from the group was shot from up a tree at the site.

The group told Storyful “this camp has grown into a community of resistance … fighting to protect one of the last green spaces in that area of London whilst demanding that our government reassess HS2.”

A HS2 spokesman said protesters were “trespassing” on land owned by the company, the BBC said. Credit: HS2 Rebellion via Storyful
