Norway’s Reindeer Farmers Sue Swedish-German Wind Power Outfit To Save Their Herd

Rural communities are sick and tired of becoming roadkill for the wind industry, and that includes the nomadic Sami – who graze and herd reindeer across northern Europe’s frozen tundra, ranging across the north of Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola Peninsula.

In the frozen North, the Sami are fighting back, in an effort to prevent their homeland from being overrun by the industrial onslaught that is the wind industry. Instead of buying the usual lies and hollow promises from the wind power outfit concerned, they’re heading to Court, in an effort to protect their ancestral homes from becoming an industrial wasteland – and prevent their reindeer grazing enterprise becoming a thing of the past.
