Rally against win turbine blight

Hilary Southwell | 24.04.2005 05:57

Thank you to everyone who attended the rally on the Saddleworth Moors yesterday to protest against plans to site seven 350ft wind turbines there.

It was a wonderfull turnout with around 300 people present. Locals and others from around the UK (two from Belgium - thanks). Adrian Dunwoody made an great speech illustrating the flawed economic arguments of wind turbines and Alison Saunders from Friends of the Earth providing leaflets on the environmental damage these turbines cause. Representivies of the RSPB were also present to inform many on the amount of birds killed and injured by the turbines currently in use.

The campaign will continue and wish this tye of local support is sure to succeed.
