Album ready for pre order
Launched 1 May
With such a destructive and heart breaking project we want to bring out the light in the campaign. Music art poetry and theatre has been very therapeutic for many campaigners and activists. It is expressive and also raises awareness of the project and ecocide in a climate and ecological emergency.
The album is a range of genres which reflects the diversity of our campaign and we hope to release further albums for as many people to have a voice who wish to express their rage against HS2 through music and poetry.
This album is not for profit and a diverse mix of established and new artists from a variety of genres and backgrounds. We have music and poetry from artists living in occupation of the protest camps in the woodlands and from supporting artists opposed to the HS2 project. The songs are a mixture of topics ranging from being directly about HS2, to anti capitalism and anti facist content to ecocide and destruction of the planet and then also general positive songs about positivity and being strong and determined to achieve something you want.

Mainly thanks to Gary Lesley Bovan (National Eviction Team) director of client care - the apple in my eyes. Also, Steve Collins - National Eviction Team climbing leader and baby handler, my heart is also yours. Huge love to Karle and Jellytot who carry the physical burden of our collectively damaged noses and thumbs. Larch, diamond - Ta love! Endless appreciation to everyone continuing the fierce optimism and relentless love in the face of state violence, everywhere. Without it we’re nothing but bailiffs. A final gushing thanks to the Secretary of State. This eviction wouldn’t have been the same without you.
