This is a link to a video showing protesters running to stand in front of the machines that were advancing on the forest where they planned to build 250m high turbines. As each protester is carried away by the police, more come to take their place. In the end, the police gave up.
Why didn’t this happen at Romney Marsh, or Fullabrook Down, or Cefn Croes? Until people see industrial wind turbines with their own eyes, and become aware of the environmental damage that they cause, they don’t usually understand the problems associated with them. It is easy to be misled by the PR of the wind industry, with their photographs of happy families with small and inoffensive-looking turbines in the background. Make no mistake, as more and more turbines are forced onto our landscapes against the will of the local people, this will happen here too, as it is in Denmark, and the USA.
