Trouble at Vestas Picket - Help Urgently Needed!Tagged as: environmentalism social_struggles solidarity workers_struggles
Police and security guards have descended in large numbers on the Vestas protest camp and appear to be attempting to break up the workers' and supporters' blockade. There has so far been one arrest - help is urgently needed!
We have received reports that large numbers of police have descended on the campsite/blockade which is being maintained by Vestas workers and their supporters outside the Vestas factory in Newport. There have been two arrests so far and the situation is expected to continue to escalate over the coming 24 hours or so.
Any supporters who can make it down to the Island and offer help of any kind are urgently requested to do so - check out savevestas.wordpress.com for details of how to get to the factory - or call 07950 539 254 for more info.
