Laois people opposed to turbines and pylons join protest at the Dáil

Anti-wind turbine protest.

The groups involved say representatives from each county wearing their county colours will protest against "industrial wind farms and pylons"

An anti-wind turbine and pylon demonstration is being mounted at the Dáil today by people from Laois and other counties as part of ongoing campaigns of opposition.

The groups involved say representatives from each county, wearing their county colours, will protest against "industrial wind farms and pylons" at the Dáil in Dublin this Wednesday 16th November 12-2pm. 

TDs and Senators are invited to meet their county representatives and explain why their party’s support industrial wind farm developments.

"We are demonstrating because of the on-going neglect of communities by their public representatives on this issue. We have been forced to fight industrial wind farm developers at great financial and emotional cost.

"Astonishingly all political parties continue to take the easy option of supporting the roll out of industrial wind in their energy policy and enable big wind developers to force these monstrosities on local landscapes solely to benefit themselves," says a social media post from Wind Aware Ireland.
