Rebecca Lush is an environmental activist who was influential during the 1990s and early 2000s when she helped organise a number of major UK road protests including those against the M3 Extension at Twyford Down, the M11 link road and the Newbury bypass. With others she later successfully challenged the UK Government's Breach of the Peace legislation at the European Court of Human Rights in 1998. In 2005 she founded 'Road Block', a new support organisation for anti-road campaigners in response to renewed road-building and later joined the Campaign for Better Transport (CBT) as Roads and Climate Campaigner. At CBT she uncovered major cost overruns on road schemes and defects in the road appraisal process. She "pied" Jeremy Clarkson at an honorary degree ceremony for the presenter at Oxford Brookes University in 2005. She was an anti-road campaigner at the Campaign for Better Transport until 2012.
