A number of people have been arrested during the Vestas campaign, not all of them even known to us. Their ‘crime’, supporting workers defending green jobs. Five we do know about will be in court this Tuesday 29th September.
James has been charged for activities connected with maintaining the ‘Blade Blockade’ at the Vestas plant, Newport, Isle of Wight. He will appear at Newport magistrates court, 1 Quay Street, Newport, PO30 5YT.
Jackie, Anna, Luke and Misty have been charged for activities connected with the cranes protest in Southampton docks on Tuesday 15 September. They will appear at Southampton magistrates court, 100 The Avenue, Southampton, SO17 1EY.
We are asking friends and supporters, if they can, to go along to the courts at 9.30am to wish the ‘Vestas 5’ well, or, if you can stay longer, to keep them company while they wait to be called.
United we stand, divided we fall. Please show support for those who have done so much to support the Vestas workers. Send good wishes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
