Today myself and 9 comrades met a UN Special Rapporteur on Hazardous Substances and Waste and impacts of pollution and also a lady who is UN Special Rapporteur to the UN Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights.
It was an excellent meeting that lasted for two and a half hours and could’ve gone on longer. We really can talk for hours about our 10 year fight against Miller Argent Ffos Y Fran opencast and the proposed and failed application to remove the mountaintop and quarry Nant Llesg.
I think we overwhelmed them with information and they were very shocked.
Which is both good and bad isn’t it?
The lady who answers to the UN Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights said:
“What we are hearing from you is more like what we are familiar with in “developing countries” apart from an absence of violence against the protesters.
Says it all really doesn’t it?
