NEWS: Save St.Ives Bay 

From Sue Sayer, Seal Research Trust:-

Hi

Hoping you might be up for helping the St Ives Bay community by sharing and supporting the protest they have arranged?

This protest is directed at both SWW and Planetary Technologies (Canadian Start up company)

Sunday 21/04/24 13.45 to 15:00 at the Red River Gwithian/Godrevy (I will be doing a short talk with others)

It would be great if you could spread the word and get lots of people there please!

All the details are on the Eventbrite page

We seriously need an epic turn out to stand any change of stopping this hugely risky experiment going ahead

(Of course, some of you are too far away to attend, but perhaps you might be up for sending me a short statement of support that we can use instead?)
