Our concerns are shared across Europe

ARLES-SUR-TECH, FRANCE, November 2004:
A two-day event, held to launch the `European Federation Against High-Voltage Power Lines', was attended by around 4,000 people, demonstrating the growing international concern about the impact of these powerlines on the landscape, communities and health


"As well as concerns about the unsightly pylons, children living near pylons are at much higher risk of suffering from leukaemia so why should our beautiful scenery be spoilt at the risk of our next generations - to benefit users of energy in the south."

A Brennan, Pitlochry

* Who we are * * *   *
We are a concerned group of people against the construction of giant pylons in the Cairngorms National Park (CNP). We believe that a public inquiry is now essential to avoid the desecration of the CNP by forcing the cables undersea or underground. To make this happen we need as many people as possible to add their voices of protest.

Cairngorms Revolt Against Pylons supports renewable energy and is not part of the anti-wind lobby. However, we are concerned that the Scottish Executive will not take enough account of the impact on people and the landscape. We have formed links with other organisations and communities affected by the mega pylons and wind farm proposals and provide links to them below.

Thank you for your support
