    In an unprecedented move Friends of the Earth Scotland has just launched an
    emergency Legal Defence Fund appeal. The launch of the Defence Fund forms
    part of Friends of the Earth's attempt to halt Britain's biggest motorway
    building project - the £500 million Glasgow M74 Northern Extension.

    Friends of the Earth is taking the Scottish Executive to court to challenge
    their decision to build the M74 extension - despite the scheme being roundly
    rejected 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 donations
    or loans. The Legal Defence Fund is needed because the group could face a
    massive legal bill if the case is lost, putting jobs and important
    environmental and community projects at risk.

    looks really really well organised.
    A week before they go to court they suddenly try to raise money,
    bit stupid, is it not?

    Second, what will happen to the money if they do not lose the case?
    I'm sure people would love to know.

    You cant expect people just to send money like this...
