Save Vestas - Defend Jobs, Save the Planet - Support the Occupation
Workers at the Vestas Wind Turbine factory on the Isle of Wight have
JUST NOW occupied their factory. They are fighting for 600 jobs and
the future of the planet. They need help now.
PLEASE TEXT AND CALL EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
There is a large picket of support starting outside the factory. This
will be crucial in giving people confidence inside. We want hundreds
of people by morning.
If you are not working, come now, by car, bus or train.
If you are on the South Coast and working, come for the night and go
to work exhausted and proud.
If you can’t come, call up friends and offer to pay the fare or petrol
money for someone else to come down. Or part of the fare.
Don’t just call the environmental and union activists you know. Call
your friends and ask them who they know. Call your brother’s friends=2 0
or your children’s friends. Text everyone. Get your friends calling
WE WANT HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE NOW.
SAVE THE JOBS - SAVE THE PLANET.
The workers want Gordon Brown to step in as if it was a troubled bank
and save the jobs and keep making wind turbine blades. They gave the
bankers trillions. They say they care about climate change. He has
talked about creating 40,000 "Green Jobs", the first step should be
protecting these 600.
The workers will need solidarity - donations of money, food and other
assistance. In the first instance please send messages of solidarity
to savevestas@gmail. com
We will suggest other forms of solidarity soon. Do this now. Reach for
