Local Residents Will Continue Campaign Against Poolbeg Incinerator Despite EPA Ruling

category dublin | environment | press release author Tuesday December 02, 2008 14:57author by Rory Hearne - People Before Profit Alliance Report this post to the editors

Rory Hearne, People Before Profit Alliance Dublin South East, local resident and active campaigner with the Combined Residents Against the Incinerator speaking on the EPA decision said:

"Local residents of Ringsend, Irishtown and Sandymount are once more devasated and dissapointed by a state body's decision in relation to the incinerator. I was one of the hundred or so local residents that attended the EPA's Oral Hearing and made statements to it outlining the impact on the health of the community if the incinerator was to ahead. However just as with An Bord Pleanala the EPA has ruled in favour of an anti-community, illogical and unsustainable monster incinerator. It is a PPP and therefore will be operated to maximise profits for the private company which will result in maximising waste production rather than minimsing and reclying waste.



John Gormley, Minister for Environment has failed to use his power to stop this incinerator. He should respect the wishes of his constituents and tender his resignation. Despite this decision, however, the community remains resolute to fight this on every level, legally, and on the streets. The message will be heard clear- the residents will not allow an incinerator be built on the Poolbeg."

How many more times are we going to hear "My hands are tied" from Mr Gormley. What is he into bondage, or a merely a green (yellow) cringing coward ?

It is a disgrace for any Government Minister to be so weak and inept, trotting out the same excuse every time the pressure is on him; it won't do Mr Blue grey man, it won't do at all.

If you can't take the heat in the kitchen, take your pinafore off dearie!

Get out and let a stronger person take over.

Hopefully this is just the first victory of many in the push against the idiot Greens who seem to see death and destruction in everything and anything.

Even in an utterly harmless incinerator.
