Yesterday's tree planting in Union was a tremendous success. We at RAG have much to be thankful for. And we also want to thank the following people, without whom our cause would be for nought.

To the government of Trinidad and Tobago, in particular our esteemed Prime Minister Patrick Manning for pushing us into taking direct action. Thanks also to EMA Managing Director Dr. Dave McIntosh. Your ambivalence has only served as fuel for our anti-smelter fire. We continue to be inspired to take more direct action to counter your backwardness and lack of vision.
To the security officers from the Security Escort Services Ltd who turned out to stop us from planting our trees.
We hope we were able to give you more information than you were given by your superiors. Hopefully next time they will follow the law and send you with the correct documentation.
And the police officers who came on the scene to make sure we weren't doing anything illegal.
To the media who came out and trained their cameras on the security officers.
To the villagers who turned out. You are the best. Keep fighting, keep defying. You are on the frontline of the battle for our nation. Your strength continues to be an inspiration to all of us.
And of course to the clouds that burst just after we were finished planting. It was the best indication that our action was fruitful.

Great blog, trite though this comment is. There is another blog on blogspot, save trinidad, which has a link to University of Texas-compiled facts on ALCOA. I have a feeling this fight may be winnable ...
