Here is a link to a template press release that can be distributed to the media. Feel free to change the contact details to suit your purposes.



  1. Give the factory to Dale Vince of Ecotricity.
    Im sure he can make some use of it????

  2. The brothers and sisters of Glasgow 1&2 branch RMT offer our solidarity and support for our working class comrades at the Vestas factory Isle Of Wight.

  3. Without any Government support, and the news media playing it down, it seems that the bullies have re-gained some ground.
    However, the rapid response from your supporters indicates the priorities of the people who care are in the right order.
    Stay with the non-violent demonstration, then the masses will see you are NOT all rabble.
