English: Photos of the numerous demonstrations related to Vestas Wind Systems on the Isle of Wight. In 2009, the company announced it was to close the Newport plant on the island, leading to a long sit in by workers at the premises. This was followed by various protests outside the plant, as well as a camp set up on the roundabout outside. In addition, there was a further protest at Vesta's Venture Quays building in East Cowes, where protesters camped on the roof.
