2nd National Demonstration Against Industrial Wind

Saturday, 4th October 2008, 2:00 P.M., Paris, place Denfert-Rochereau at boulevard Saint-Germain

Collectif du 4 octobre [1]

On October 6, 2007, more than 1,500 French citizens, members of national federations and local associations, came from all over France along with local elected officials to demonstrate against unjustified and scandalous industrial wind. Received by the minister of the environment, a delegation presented their demands.

Despite its promises, the state has still not kept its commitments.

One year later, in contempt of the most elementary democracy, the demented program instigated by the industrial wind lobby risks being voted on:

The law proposed by the Grenelle de l’environnement to Parliament in October 2008 equals a check from taxpayers of 2.5 billion euros/year for 25,000 MW of wind energy, more than 10,000 to 15,000 giant wind turbines erected throughout France.

It is to denounce that planning error, which imperils the economy as well as the natural and cultural heritage of the French people, that the Collectif du 4 octobre will demonstrate in Paris at the ministries.
