New campaign materials available
We want as many people as possible to be able to fight the M4 with us, so we’ve created a suite of campaign materials you can use on our Take Action page. Take Action
The ‘shopping list of campaign actions’ gives you lots of ideas about how you can help, from the quick and easy to the big and ambitious. Shopping list of campaign actions
The more people that speak up and tell the Welsh Government and the Assembly that we don’t want this damaging and old-fashioned relief road, the more likely it is that they will find a better solution – one that saves money, saves nature, helps our health and is a decision Wales can be proud of.
As a dedicated group of local residents, concerned citizens and charities, all doing this outside of our 9-5 lives, we can struggle to find the time or resources to do everything we want. One of the things we haven’t been able to do so far is translate all of our campaign materials into Welsh. For example, you’ll notice the leaflets and posters are bilingual, but the template letters aren’t yet. Please bear with us while we find the resources to translate them – we care deeply about making sure everyone in Wales can access these materials in the language of their choice.
