A small camp has been set up in Longsight at "Bluebell Woods" in protest at plans to cut it all down to build student accommodation. Typically, there's 7 acres of derelict ground unused literally next door!
Register your protest by calling Browns of Wilmslow (who wish to develop the site) on 01625 522 251, and the city council Planning Dept (who have to give permission) on 234 5000.
The camp is in the woods at the Anson Road end of Victoria Park, Longsight, near the Rampant Lion pub. Please ring Earth First (224 4846) for latest news before visiting.
