March against Incineration: 99 Red balloons

Here is the advert for the march against an incinerator at Javelin Park - I can't make the march as have another campaign event but Greens will be amongst those joining this march. It should be noted that the County Council have not yet made a decision about an incinerator and this march is aimed at making sure they don't go down the incinerator route.

Saturday 18th April 2009 Starting @ 9-30am

The Haresfield Parish Council has organised a protest against the Gloucester County Council's plan to build an incinerator at Javelin Park.

Please meet at the following:-
9-30am Quedgeley Retail Park
9-50am Roundabout at Nass Lane/Field Court Road
10-15am Official March starting point opposite Mcdonalds/ Esso Garage

11am The March will end at Javelin Park with a rally and the releasing of 99 Red Balloons - representing the danger of possible emissions (apparently they are eco-balloons). Each balloon will be tagged so we will be able to trace how far they travel.

Yes, Bob Irving posted this info on the 'No Incinerator In Gloucester' Facebook site. Like anyone else there really cares. I couldn't reply there because the toady creator has banned me, but I did send a message pointing out that bit about the plan not being *quite* set yet, and a suggestion that if balloons are going to be used to signify how emissions travel, they should be released from cars on the M5 nearby, and in city centres.

Nice to see plenty of advance warning, though.
