M74: EMERGENCY LEGAL DEFENCE FUND - CAN YOU HELP?*****************************************************************

In an unprecedented move Friends of the Earth Scotland has just launched anemergency Legal Defence Fund appeal. The launch of the Defence Fund formspart of Friends of the Earth's attempt to halt Britain's biggest motorwaybuilding project - the £500 million Glasgow M74 Northern Extension.Friends of the Earth is taking the Scottish Executive to court to challengetheir decision to build the M74 extension - despite the scheme being roundlyrejected by an independent public inquiry.That court hearing will begin on 27 June. Next week!!!Friends of the Earth urgently needs to secure at least £25,000 in donationsor loans. The Legal Defence Fund is needed because the group could face amassive legal bill if the case is lost, putting jobs and importantenvironmental and community projects at risk.

*****Please give your support at: Http://*********

If we are successful, then all the money raised will be available to use in the campaign or to return to you. For this is not simply an appeal for funds, but a plea for you to either lend or donate your money to our Legal Defence Fund. Of course, in the event of us losing the M74 case and having to pay costs to the Scottish Executive, then your loans could not be repaid.

To mark this special, urgent, appeal Friends of the Earth Scotland is producing a unique gold enamel badge. This will be sent to all those who give £35 or more to the Legal Defence Fund. These badges will not be available anywhere else. Those making a donation or loan of £125 or more will also receive a signed, limited edition 'Stop the M74' cartoon print by Scottish 'Cartoonist of the Year' Frank Boyle.
