    I dont think the petition or writing to our MP is going to be effective as they are not listening to us, the tree felling has already started. I think we need to organise some kind of protest and have as many people there as possible first thing in the morning on days there will be tree felling. Will they be coming back tomorrow morning? Does anyone actually know when the rest of the felling has been scheduled for?

    I’m pretty certain they will be back tomorrow. They have tried to fence the area and we will be trespassing if we try to get past. We need to be there as early as possible.

    Bravo! At least you are making OUR feelings known. I would join you. Let me know when.

    I wrote to my local councillor Amia Lone and to both the contact names asking for comments listed on the Manchester City Council web site. No replies from any of them. The whole consultation process was a farce. My friend said she was asked about renovation when in the park one day, she said she thought it sounded like a good idea – but at no point were the fine details mentioned, including the felling of so many trees.

    Amina Lone is so far up Leeses arse you can see her nose poking out well, that was until her dumped her publicly in a city centre pub for all to see!! So don’t bother with her shes another nodding dog also like him not from Manchester who needs to be voted out asap, direct action only way forward i will be there overseeing legal angle dont worry, Tony Lloyd needs pressure put on him ASAP to get the police to back off or a vote of no confidence needs to be sent to Cameron also…..High court writ needed to get the whole dirty affair stopped.
