Following a highly successful visit to Holyrood in January, Cromarty Rising and 38 Degrees have arranged a petition hand-in event to highlight the ever increasing number of people who fundamentally oppose ship to ship transfers of crude oil in the Moray Firth.
On 9th March 2017 at 07:30 /08:00 members of the public plan to gather to greet Highland Council elected members as they arrive for the last full meeting before Councillor elections are held on 4th May 2017. This will send a peaceful, visible message showing the strength of feeling of communities and businesses against ship to ship crude oil transfer operations.
38 Degrees Scotland will arrange to hand-in the list of signatures, which now stands at over 100,000 . This is an important part of community involvement in decision-making and will be another major milestone for the campaign which has already seen the first licence application rejected.
