You start to worry whether Father Christmas will even visit Sheffield in 2018.
The streets are patrolled by out-of-town goons (see below) working for a multinational tree contractor.
They’re here to ensure the Council can, this week, try to fell a street full of iconic and HEALTHY cherry trees that are decorated with Xmas lights. The trees and lights are being used, as they have been for years, to raise money for a local hospice.
You probably won’t have 12 min., 40 secs to watch the whole video released today about those cherry
trees. Just watch the first 60 seconds….and then skip ahead to 9:45 seconds.
Gives a whole new insight into the cruelty and crassness of capitalism.
No surprise then that more 10,500 people have signed a petition asking Jeremy Corbyn to mediate between the Labour-controlled council and tree campaigners. https://www.change.org/p/jeremy-corbyn-mp-jeremy-corbyn-ple…
