Wind Farm Demonstration: 25 March in Nontron

At 10.00am, Saturday 25 March. The march starts at the cinema Louis Delluc car park, Place des Droits de l’Homme, Nontron. Car-pooling is advised due to limited parking spaces.

Have you chosen to come and live in the French countryside? The many benefits of this rural lifestyle are under threat and we need to fight to defend them. Please come and help by demonstrating peacefully with us!

To protect:
– your childrens’ health
– the lifestyles of those who live in the countryside
– peace in our villages
– the countryside and local heritage

To demand:
– the abandonment of all industrial wind turbine projects in the Dordogne and surrounding areas. Do you really want to see Nontron surrounded by 20 wind farms?
– respect for the opinion of the Dordogne departmental assembly and support for the politicians and councillors with the courage to resist pressure from wind farm developers and local politicians.

To condemn:
– the blindness of certain politicians who prefer to ignore the massive local opposition and continue to support the developers
– the deleterious effects of wind farms on health, the environment, and personal finances:
say no to false environmentalism!

This demonstration is being organised by the collectif Forces Périgord, a group of 6 associations from the Dordogne that have between them a total of 1850 members.
