Recently, in Peru, indigenous ecologists were massacred by the government, which was acting in support of large multinational companies devastating the Amazon rain forest. This has shaken us and made us more aware of any act of environmental destruction.
We are in solidarity with those, in whatever part of the world, who defend the wellbeing of the planet. For that reason we totally support the workers of Vestas Wind Turbine on the Isle of Wight who have occupied their factory.
From the other side of the world, we ask those who are closer than us to support these workers by all necessary means. We hope that all the inhabitants of the planet will express to them the gratitude that they deserve.
