Reclaim the Setts
"In November, the pixies of Hinkley set about assisting the badgers of Hinkley in reclaiming their setts. The badgers had been displaced from their homes for some months after ‘UnNatural England’ colluded with the French fat cats EDF to grant them a badger badgering license.
"Bodger the Badger, spokesbadger, said, 'They’ve sealed up our setts and filled them with earth whilst providing totally inadequate temporary accommodation for us. We don’t like the stench around here and with baby badgers on the way we were missing our home.'
"EDF have submitted a planning application to West Somerset District Council to desecrate over 400 acres of badger country. The objection deadline has now been extended until Jan 31st 2011. Badgers and humans can object here: http://tinyurl.com/4dncx39
"If, however, you’re sick of seeing the heartless desecration of the Earth and the wildlife and want to be a bit more direct, then get yourselves down to Hinkley and help the pixies resist the destruction."
