Un pique-nique anti-éolien organisé

[The wind turbines shall not pass! More or less, that is certainly the hope of the group “Forward Camarade”. EDF Renewable Energies supports erecting four to six industrial wind turbines by 2015 on Les Cabanères, a focal point of the commune of Camarade. But they and others who want to protect the environment and preserve the quality of life in Camarade and on the Pyrenées foothill of l’Ariège à la Garonne did not all understand the issue in the same way. That’s why they organized on Thursday a festive assembly and picnic against this likely erection of industrial wind turbines. Forward Camarade denounces the fact that EDF has hidden the implementation of this project from the public. “It has advanced in the shadows since 2007, during which a mast was erected to measure the wind. In 2011, the municipal council accepted that EDF launched a required “impact study” (acoustic, fauna, flora, etc.). If the project proceeds, by 2020 no fewer than 85 communes will be affected by a windfarm.”]

Les éoliennes ne passeront pas ! Tout du moins, c’est bien ce qu’espère l’association «En avant Camarade». EDF énergies nouvelles (EDFen) souhaite installer quatre à six éoliennes industrielles d’ici 2015 aux Cabanères, un point culminant de la commune de Camarade.

Seulement, cette association qui a, entre autres, pour but de protéger l’environnement et préserver la qualité de vie à Camarade et sur le Piémont pyrénéen de l’Ariège à la Garonne, ne l’entend pas de cette oreille. C’est pourquoi elle organise, jeudi, un rassemblement festif et pique-nique contre cette probable implantation d’éoliennes industrielles.

En avant Camarade dénonce le fait qu’EDF ait caché au public la mise en place de ce projet. «Il avance dans l’ombre depuis 2007, au cours de laquelle un mât est installé pour mesurer la force du vent. En 2011, le conseil municipal a accepté qu’EDF lance une «étude d’impact» (acoustique, faune, flore, etc.) préalable obligatoire à l’implantation d’éoliennes sur un territoire, explique-t-elle dans un communiqué. Si le projet passe, d’ici 2 020 pas moins de 85 communes du département seraient concernées par un parc éolien».
