Supporters of Vestas workers get food to the occupation

Issue No. 2161

Women protesters have defied the police blockade at the occupied Vestas wind turbine factory on the Isle of Wight. The protesters managed to throw up food to the workers, who the police were attempting to starve out.

In response the authorities are building a fence around the factory to deny people access to the factory. There are now also private security guards outside the plant.

A solidarity protest is set to take place there at 5pm.
