From Stop the Drill Antrim
“Site directions below for this Monday (15th Feb) at Woodburn Forest. Despite intense lobbying and questioning we end the week with no answers from the Council so we have to assume Infrastrata may plan to go on site on Monday without Waste Management approval. We are calling for a peaceful, positive show of opposition. Bring a picnic! We’ll also have a public meeting at the Windrose in Carrickfergus on Wednesday. So much support for the campaign this week. Thank you. Have a great weekend! #StopTheDrill
