THE VESTAS STRUGGLE – AN EXAMPLE TO THE MOVEMENT
“Unemployment is predicted to hit 3 million next year – yet there is so much work that needs to be done to build a sustainable economy, tackle poverty, educate our children, cure the sick, and take care of the old. We must fight for the right to do the work that needs to be done – and to get paid decently for it. The workers at Vestas are at the forefront of the fight for a just and fair transition to a sustainable economy, but the fight is not limited to wind turbines or energy resources.
The fight for jobs, and the fight for a sustainable future is the fight for a better society.
Who are we?
Workers Climate Action seeks to create solidarity between the grass roots labour movement and grass roots environmentalists to discuss and formulate a workers’ plan to prevent ecological disaster. We stand for a just transition to a low carbon economy and workers’ control. WCA is a network of socialists, anarchists, trade unionists and other activists brought together by an understanding of climate change and class politics. We met each other and have been active in the Camp for Climate Action, part of its mobilisations against the building of a third runway at Heathrow and the proposed new coal fired power station at Kingsnorth and most recently working on the Isle of Wight with Vestas workers.”
