Navitus Bay protest

The demo took place on Sunday morning 13th January at 11 am at Swanage. It was well supported and obtained both TV and newspaper coverage. The aim was to keep pressure on Navitus and bring the protest against the windfarm to a wider audience.

Bill Trite Swanage Town Council Mayor and Richard Drax (our local MP) attended to give their support. Charlie Sanderson led the protest.

As can be seen from the photos we had a good turnout with an estimate of approx 2000 against the proposed windfarm.

Friends of the Earth turned up to oppose us but many were blissfully unaware of the nature of our protest or any of the shortcomings of the Navitus Bay location.
Thanks to M.Stollery for the photos.
