Some of you may have friends/relatives resident in Wales who would welcome this opportunity to petition for a Referendum on the spread of destructive wind ‘farms’ in their country. Please spread this urgent message to as many other interested parties as possible.
Note: Individual signatures and addresses of residents are essential on the petition form: a group represented by one signatory will only count as a single petitioner.
A petition asking for a referendum on the spread of windfarms in Wales is being organised by Dan Munford. It will aim to convince the National Assembly that large numbers of people living here are bitterly opposed to it both in terms of the destruction of the landscape and the financial impact on electricity generation.
There has been very little public consultation, if any, at local level and this will be an opportunity for people to show the strength of opinion that exists against the loss of our wild and beautiful countryside.
Angie and I have found in the past that an A3 size petition on good quality paper survives the rigours of many signatures and if you are able to ask a well-known and respected local person to head the list of names it often encourages others to add their voice to the cause. There are many people living in the Welsh borders who walk in the uplands who might want to encourage their friends living here to participate so please ask them if you have the opportunity.
Attached is a form for you to download and enlarge and take to all meetings, local shows, pubs and any other event where you can gather signatures from people who want the National Assembly to realise the scale of opposition to the vandalism that they are imposing on us without a mandate. Please try and respond to this with as much energy as possible to make sure we get the opinion of thousands of people to present to politicians of all parties before it is too late!
