24 years ago today - a Tree stood against the massive Tory road builders

This day 24 years ago a 250 year old Sweet Chestnut tree was the focus of the anti-road building protests. £500,000 was spent to cut it down in Wanstead, East London to make way for the M11 Link road in 1993.

The tree became a strong symbol of resistance and also launched undercurrents as an alternative news service.

This is the film we made about the campaign

Undercurrents is an award winning alternative news service producing videos of people taking inspiring actions.
