Protesters concerned about the dumping of waste from Merseyside [see previous blog entry] into a new landfill at the former Hafod quarry, Wrexham, are taking their fight to the Welsh Assembly Government tomorrow.

They will be carrying a petition of 1,500 names from a campaign supported by the Evening Leader local newspaper which writes: "They are hoping tomorrow's handover will put enough pressure on the Government to revoke the licence for the landfill, which, locals say, is too close to housing and a health hazard."

Meanwhile, take a look at a growing photo archive compiled by Vertigogen who has been following the protest closely.
