Protest begins as EPA give go-ahead on two incinerators


26/11/2005 - 10:42:21

Anti-incineration campaigners are protesting in Ringsend in Dublin today after the Environmental Protection Agency granted licences for two for incinerators in Meath and Cork yesterday.

Locals in Ringsend fear the go-ahead will now be given to what would be one of the biggest incinerators in Europe.

Green Party TD John Gormley says increased political pressure needs to be put on the Government to halt the process.

He’s accused the Government of back-tracking on promises not to push ahead with incineration and has pledged that the Green Party will step up their campaign against incineration.
