    I wasn't there, but I *really* want to talk to anyone who was.

    I'm working on an oral history project that's documenting the stories and memories of people that were involved in the No M11 Link Road Campaign. It's early days, but here is our blog - http://voicesofleytonstonia.blogspot.co.uk/

    Would love to hear from you if you fancy recording your memories for posterity :)

    I only popped along a couple of times. There was a wonderful spirit there.

    Been working with a group of kids from the woodcraft folk on an oral history project about these times. Interviewing interesting people, gathering stories and memorabilia and trying to get young people engaged... There's a blog if you're interested Voices of Leytonstonia

    The original link above is now dead (site taken over by some marketing guff - says it all really), but noticed the film has been uploaded...

    The Highways Agency and evil developer bastards Peel (who seem to basically run the northwest of England) are planning on bulldozing a highway right through the Rimrose valley - north Liverpool's last significant natural green space. It fucking makes my blood boil. I would so love the spirit of the 90s road protests to reanimate for this one but it all seems a long time ago and activists round here of that type are more focused on fracking.

    yes spent the night on the roof as a callow youth and sometimes sleeping in an empty bath in the middle of the terrace. The tower of power was awesome....I remember quitting at about 7 in the morning despite protestations of friends to slug it out - as you came down you were blinded by the lights of riot police filming and processing you. Bastards.

    I did a painting about this a few years back when I was still painting.
