There are a number of solidarity groups with Vestas workers’ struggle to keep producing wind turbine blades on the Isle of Wight. We list names and contacts below, and now in the side panel. Please let us know of any group to add to the list.
Obviously, if you want to do some activity you are not obliged to go through these groups, but these groups could be the first port of call, for example, if you want to help with the next Vestas solidarity day of action which is on Thursday 17th September (not the 9th as advertised a little while ago). And a lot of them are succeeding at uniting different groups and non-aligned individuals and combining the green, labour and direct action aspects of this struggle.
