If this goes ahead, the actual construction of the caverns involves pumping 100s of 1000s of litres of man made brine into the sea 450 metres off Islandmagee.
This could have a devastating effect on every aspect of marine life in the immediate area and beyond.
Federation members Keith Keithamo and Andy Logan have been flat out putting up posters in S.E Antrim area protesting against this, only for most of them to be removed today.
This is basically big business allied with numpties receiving “coin” at a local level with absolutely no concern for the environmental impact it is going to have!!
We could write a book about how our concerns along with those of local residents are being ignored and basically written off as the rantings of “yocal clampets”
Long story short, the NIFSA members of this area would be very very grateful if as many of you as possible could turn up to Browns Bay on Sunday, wearing federation fleeces, hats whatever to show your support.
