3,100 have already signed this Scotland Against Spin petition and today is the last day - 15th March – to join them.
The petition is here on Change.org – and pleads ‘Stop the reckless siting of wind turbines in Scotland’s scenic landscapes’.
The organisation has invited the First Minister, Alex Salmond, to accept the petition at a demonstration taking place in Inverness on 23rd March.
An extract from the letter of invitation says:
‘I would be honored if you, as the leader of ALL the people of Scotland in its efforts to preserve Scotland’s globally important natural heritage and protect the £1.4 billion nature tourism sector of the Scottish economy, would attend and accept the petition from our delegation at Eden Court on March, 23rd between 13.30 – 16.00pm.
‘Our delegation will be led by Rhona Weir, widow of celebrated climber, author and broadcaster Tom Weir. Like Tom, Rhona is a great champion of the Scottish landscape and has carried on her husband’s pioneering work in protecting it. She recently gave a vivid interview on Wind Wise Radio, describing the impact of industrial wind turbines on the Scottish countryside which she so prizes.
‘As Rhona is 93, we would appreciate it if you could fix a time when her delegation could meet you at Eden Court.
‘Our delegation will also include members of the younger generation who do not want Scotland’s unique and iconic landscapes destroyed by this generation. They hope to give you a bound copy of the petition including a list of the signers’ supporting comments.’
The point of the date of the protest march is that the SNP spring conference will be in the city on that day.
