SAVE VESTAS - send messages of support now

Vestas is a wind turbine factory (the only one in the UK) on the Isle of Wight near where I live in Portsmouth. It is threatened with closure on the 31 July. with the loss of 600 jobs. This will have a devastating effect on the already weak economy of the Island and is a serious blow to the fight against climate change.

Last night I went, with Jonathan Neale of the Campaign against Climate Change and other comrades, to a meeting with about ten of the Vestas workers on the Island. It is clear that these workers want to resist and that what they need above all is confidence and the feeling that they will be supported. If they fight it will be of great significance for the British workers movement and for the general struggle to save the planet.

In this context messages of support from everyone, but especially international messages, to are very important.

Obviously it is quite urgent, as the key decisions may be made this week.

I couldn't help but admire your pun about a serious blow!
But it is: a serious blow, and I for one support you.
