Dongas road protest group

The Dongas road protest group were a protest group in England noted for their occupation of Twyford Down outside Winchester, Hampshire. This was a protest against the M3 motorway extension which would destroy some of the environment there. The name Dongas comes from the Matabele word for Gully. This had somehow been given to the drovers tracks on Twyford Down.

After they were driven from Twyford Down by bulldozers, they moved to Bramdean Common. They constituted about twenty people in their early twenties. When asked to describe what the best thing that could happen, the Dinga Dream, one of them called Fraggle replied "cake".
