The Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers Union (RMT) has claimed that protesters occupying a wind turbine factory are having their human rights breached.
The Vestas factory on the Isle of White is being closed by its owners (announced on the same day the British government announced its fictitious “green jobs” figures) so workers have illegally occupied the building and are staging an illegal sit-in.
The RMT say that the illegal protesters’ human rights are being breached because, allegedly, Vestas aren’t allowing people into the building to give deliver food to them.
So which section of the Human Rights Act covers refusing permission for people to enter a private building to feed protesters illegally occupying said building? Apparently, it’s the bit that covers depriving someone of their liberty. Which is odd, because according to the BBC News website, Vestas has been to court to have the illegal protesters removed which would suggest that, far from depriving the protesters of their liberty, Vestas are actively trying to force their liberty on them by way of an eviction.
It’s idiots like this that devalue the Human Rights Act to the extent that it become a national joke. Nobody’s human rights are being breached. The protesters, I am sure, are free to walk out of the door any time they feel so inclined and go back to their families. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their jobs in the last few months yet, strangely, none of them seem to have felt the need to illegally occupy their former employers’ offices in protest. If these Vestas workers are looking for sympathy, making patently false and quite ridiculous claims of human rights abuses is a funny way of going about it.
The “green” industry is based on a complete fabrication and is entirely unsistainable. The general public has neither the money, nor the inclination, to buy into the environmentalist scam. In the case of wind turbines – the line of business that Vestas is in – they are hugely expensive to make, hugely expensive to run and are so inefficient and ineffectual that most of them will never recoup their manufacturing and operational costs before the end of, in the absence of more appropriate terminology, their “useful” life. Anyone basing their long term future and financial security on the “green” industry is either a fool or one of the career environmentalists that makes a living spouting bullshit propaganda at TV cameras.
