if you are in Edinburgh in the next hour or so....
The Guardian, Wednesday 12 August 2009
We observe with increasing dismay the government's unwillingness to act to prevent the closure of the Vestas wind turbine factory (UK's wind industry left in doldrums, 8 August). While we are constantly being reassured about a commitment to fighting climate change and unemployment, we are asked to accept that the UK's only wind turbine factory be allowed to shut and 625 jobs lost. Gordon Brown's silence on this matter has been deafening. At 1pm today, we will ask him to speak to us at his constituency office in Cowdenbeath. We urge anyone who is concerned about climate change and job losses to join us, or to demonstrate in their local area.
