Vestas wokers are calling for supporters to come down to the Isle Of Wight.

A contingent has travelled down from Bristol

Loads of interesting speeches etc. here recorded yesterday as not seen on the increasingly totalitarian BBC (of course).

Dateline: Newport County Court, Isle of Wight, UK, Tue 04 Aug 09 – Despite hundreds of Vestas Workers, their families, friends, and supporters from across the UK marching in the rain to the Court House, Judge White grants an eviction order to Vestas Wind Systems bosses against the "Boys On the Balcony", in the 15th day of their factory occupation against 625 green energy jobs cuts and the shutting down of England's only wind turbine blade factories. But at 04:00, five Climate Campers begin an indefinite roof-top occupation of Vestas' Venture Quays workshop building in East Cowes, dropping a huge banner reading, "Vestas workers. Solidarity in occupation, fighting for green jobs." It ain't over, not by a long chalk!
