Activists occupy crane and boats to blockade Vestas

Activists from Workers’ Climate Action (among others) and workers have occupied a crane and at least one boat at Southampton docks to prevent Vestas from moving wind turbine blades out of its factory on the Isle of Wight. These blades belong to the workers that made them, and to society as a whole, not to a profit-seeking business. Vestas must be forced to either continue production in the UK, or allow someone else (ideally the workers) to continue production at its two sites in the Isle of Wight.

Blockade the blades, fight for ecological production under workers’ control.

Check out the Vestas campaign blog for more information.

Also, see this article at ‘This is Hamshire’ for mention of WCA.
