March on Cardiff tomorrow

Mynydd y Gwair, from Lliw Reservoir, painted by David Bellamy at the 2005 Paint it while its there day in Wales.

David has this to say about tomorrow's event:
"Let's hope it will light the flame of resistance against these politicians who want to trash our landscapes for the benefit of the corporations. Never in living memory have I witnessed such governmental vandalism and total disregard for the feelings, lives and economic welfare of British country folk for so little.

Artists Against Wind Farms will be there in strength with Featured artists David Bellamy, Jenny Keal and Christine Lovelock, Featured photographer Tom Hutton, and of course, Angel;a Kelly, Chairman of Country Guardian. Also coming we hope is playwright Henry Lewis ("The Wind Thing".)

If any of the other artists who have shown work on our website come to Cardiff, please look out for us, we'd love to see you. Some of us will have placards so we hope we will be easy to spot. Most of all, of course, we all hope to show our support for everyone involved in the wonderful protest organised by Conservation of Upland Powys.
