A second win, 8:1 against the madness of burning food for fuel. This time against Vogen’s biofuel power station application at Newport was achieved on Sept 9th. Residents and campaigners walked out in protest at the Chair’s attempts to manipulate councillors with talk of lost capital for hospitals & schools + shouts of “shame” to those promoting industry interests before residents. One councillor described the behaviour of Vogen in their so-called ‘public meeting’ of 2 weeks ago as "tyrannical".
