Take protest to Westminster – Carwyn  

Credit:  by Sally Williams, Western Mail, www.walesonline.co.uk 23 September 2011 ~~

First Minister Carwyn Jones urged protesters who tried to block his way into a Welsh castle yesterday to “take their ‘No to Pylons’ protest to Westminster”.

Around 20 protesters gathered at the entrance and exit of Powis Castle in Welshpool in Mid Wales, where Mr Jones was on an official visit to discuss The National Trust-owned property’s renewable energy scheme.

The campaigners fear that UK policy on renewable energy and wind power will over-ride Welsh policy, unless urgent action is taken by the First Minister to redress the situation.

But Mr Jones told the Western Mail: “It is inconvenient for their (the protesters’) politics that it is the UK Government not us that they should be protesting against.”
