Incinerator protesters take to Gloucester streets as fight goes on
CAMPAIGNERS against the Javelin Park incinerator took to the streets of Gloucester on Saturday.
The "monster" incinerator edged nearer reality this month when a contract was signed between Gloucestershire County Council and waste firm Urbaser Balfour Beatty.
A Liberal Democrat 'call-in' of the decision was thrown out days later. Despite the agreement, protesters says the development can still be stopped in its tracks as planning permission is yet to be granted.
Helen Michael, who lives in Hardwicke, is so incensed by the scheme, she hit the city centre to gather anti-incinerator signatures on a petition.

The council has said it is "satisfied" the process has been done properly.
