FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Why not join the residents of Avonmouth and the BBC Points West team at Avonmouth Park for a Brazilian samba-style protest against pollution at the Port of Bristol docks tomorrow?
The fun kicks off at 12 noon when Avonmouth residents will gather to party down to the port gates where a cruise liner is due to berth on the morning tide and leave on the evening tide.
A representative from the Avonmouth Dust Forum says, “we have an opportunity to bring our plight peacefully to the attention of a wider audience and highlight the lack of concern and abuse of the law being shown by Bristol City Council, the hopeless regulatory authorities and the Port of Bristol Company.”
The forum also say, “to all those organizations that are monitoring the Avonmouth Dust Forum: we would much rather be sat at a negotiating table trying find a sensible workable resolution and we extend an offer to the Port of Bristol Company and Bristol City Council to contact us with solutions. If no such contact is made our peaceful campaign of direct action will continue.”
