Editor's note: We received this editorial from a Canadian reader in response to our coverage of the Ocotillo Wind Energy Project's impacts on our local desert and the people of Octoillo.
By Catherine Bayne, Bayniche Conservancy
We grieve for you and yours, for the desert, the world and for the future. The wind war stories are fundamentally the same from everywhere, the disillusionment pervasive.
How could corruption of such magnitude flourish under the UN? We forgot that, "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance"
We fight on against an old evil and know it only slept. Your Thomas Jefferson said..."you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
In Canada we have a line in a post-WWI poem which exhorts people not to "break faith " with those who have died and it seems to me that the injustice in this wind war is so extreme the same resolve is called for, we will never surrender.
