Warrington Wolves – kick out Vestas!

Around 12 activists from the Climate Camp headed to Wembley Stadium today where the Warrington Wolves were in the Rugby League Challenge Cup final against Huddersfield Giants.

The Wolves are currently sponsored by Vestas – but hopefully not for much longer. Together with activists from Brent Trades Council, we leafletted 1000s of fans encouraging them to raise the chant “Vestas Out! Workers In!”. Whether or not Warrington fans raised this chant is unknown but we received alot of support and raised a considerable amount of money for the campaign.

One fan said “Warrington’s always been a working-class town, we support you all the way.” Others told us of their own recent redundancies and industrial disputes they are involved in.

We are encouraging fans to write to Wolves Chief Executive, Andy Gatcliffe and petition him to kick out Vestas and get a new sponsor.

Write to him:
Andy Gatcliffe
