Archive: Pylon protest gains media attention
1 April 2006
Sheriffmuir ProtestFurther to news article Desecration at Sheriffmuir, support has been flooding in from all around the world for the campaign against Scottish & Southern Energy's plans to run their new overhead electricity lines across Sheriffmuir.

Campaign momentum reached a peak today during a protest rally at the battlefield.

The rally received extensive media attention, particularly from the BBC, who broadcast an interview with Fraser McRae during hourly news programmes on BBC Radio Scotland, a television interview with Commander Jim MacRae and reports on the BBC website.

Articles also appeared in The Sunday Post and on STV.
