North East Wales is becoming a dumping ground for Merseyside waste

An urgent message (below) has just arrived from Cymuned concerning a protest against the landfill site at Hafod Quarry in Johnstown, near Wrecsam, being used as a dumping ground for Merseyside waste. The Wrecsam edition of the Evening Leader also covered the story today (Aug 23 2006).

Another group, Balchder Cymru, has set-up a "Stop Mersey Waste" online petition. Martyn Jones, Clwyd South MP, has voiced strong opposition too.

If anyone else has more details of the protests, I'd be happy to publish them.
Between 7 and 8 o'clock this morning, a group of 50 to 100 protestors attempted to stop lorries from Mersey Waste dumping in a Welsh quarry near Wrecsam. More details here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/north_east/5274302.stm The protestors will be meeting by the entrance to the Hafod site, near Johnstown, Wrecsam, at 7.00 o'clock every morning for the rest of this week. They will picket for an hour, from 7 until 8, in order to attempt to stop the unacceptable decision to let Liverpool dump its waste in North Wales. If you live nearby, please go and support the protestors tomorrow morning. If you don't live in the area, please forward this e-mail to anyone you know who does.
