Save The World, Support The Vestas Occupation.

Fossil fuels have had their day, they are finite and will eventually run out, which means the world will be without sufficient energy sources.

A good alternative is wind power.

It isn’t used as much as it should be and the incentives to install it seem rather low.

One company that actually did produce the necessary equipment was Vestas Blades UK.

It is due to close on the 31st July 2009.

Thankfully, the workers have taken matters into their own hands and are occupying the plant, not only to save jobs but to help the environment.

They deserve our support. They have a blog here and a list of planned events here.

Good luck to them!

Update: Another useful site is http://vestasjobs.net/ and their Facebook group.

Update 2: The Guardian covers it too.
