On Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. volunteers with the Affected Residents of Urirama group conducted a signature drive at different supermarkets, collecting signatures against the placement of a 10-windturbine park at Urirama.
They stood at among others Superfood, Kong Hing, Certified Supermarket, Cheng’s Supermarket, Mundo Nobo and Hong Kong Supermarket. The group considers the signature drive important because they are convinced that not only the project will cause destruction to nature, but also will affect the people’s health. With these signatures they will approach the government and request them to put a stop to the project and have an objective, extensive investigation done by experts in this field to determine the negative consequences for human health and the environment.
Volunteer Shirley Croes, who was at Hong Kong Supermarket stated that this is not a political action and has nothing to do with politics. Each person, regardless of their political preference, was welcome to sign. She was disappointed that some people tried to prevent and stop the signature drive at Hong Kong, boycotting the action and even threatening the volunteers.
