On Saturday the 16th, RPS Group’s offices in Glasgow had its locks and signage destroyed by people who are outraged in their involvement with the Corrib Gas Pipeline in Co. Mayo Ireland and the Open Cast Coal mines of the Douglas Valley, south Lanarkshire, Scotland.
RPS is a large planning, engineering and environmental consistency that attempts to legitimize these controversial projects. Local resistance to these projects has arisen for many reasons, including their detriment to the environment. RPS claim to consult the local communities affected and use plenty of environmental rhetoric in their reports but in fact work with governments and big business to justify developments that are ruining peoples health, lifestyles and their environment.
