Activists send police away (Aktivister sender politi væk)  

Credit:  21st July 2011 08:46 By: Trine Østergaard Thomsen nordjyske.dk ~~

The police began on Thursday morning to drag activists away from the machines in Østerild.

Police went Thursday morning in time to clear the way for logging machines in Østerild Klitplantage for the establishment of a national test center for wind turbines.

But the 30-40 activists, who had already twice stopped the logging, once again did not give up.

The police put up a barrier, and so they tried to run the machines out. But they went no more than 50 meters before people began to run out in front of them. And after ten minutes in which eight policemen were trying to form a living wall, they abandoned the enterprise and drove away from there, says NORDJYSKE reporter Andreas Bjerre.

Police have now driven home to ponder what the next move against the activists should be.

Politiet måtte torsdag morgen slæbe aktivisterne væk i Østerild.

Politiet gik torsdag morgen i gang med at bane vejen for skovrydningsmaskinerne i Østerild Klitplantage, hvor der skal etableres et nationalt testcenter for vindmøller.

Men de 30-40 aktivister, som allerede to gange har stoppet for skovrydningen, ville heller ikke denne gang give op.

Politiet satte en afspærring op, og så prøvede de at køre maskinerne ud. Men de kom altså ikke mere end 50 meter væk, før folk begyndte at løbe ud foran dem. Og efter ti minutter hvor otte politimænd prøvede at danne en levende mur, opgav de foretagendet og kørte væk derfra, fortæller NORDJYSKEs reporter Andreas Bjerre.

Politiet er nu kørt hjem for at overveje, hvad det næste træk mod aktivisterne skal være.
