Following the wind turbine manufacturers, Vestas, decision to make their 600 staff on the IOW redundant, the workforce decided to take power back into their own hands. They occupied the factory in Newport and climate camp activists took the roof of the other factory in East Cowes. 'Boys on the Balcony' is the song of the campaign written and recorded by Seize the Day, Vestas workers and their families. It is a powerful and inspiring account of the first month of the campaign, occupations, evictions and the continued determination to fight for a 'world where the turbines spin'.
