D-Day Beaches under threat of industrialization

The French government will authorize the construction in Normandy of 75 giant wind turbines along the coastline of the five landing beaches of June 6, 1944: Sword, Juno, Gold, Omaha, and Utah.
This project is named Courseulles-sur-Mer.
The Fédération Environnement Durable (FED) and EPAW (European Platform Against windfarms) urgently require the classification of the landing beaches as World Heritage by UNESCO so that they will be permanently protected from industrialization and call on the international community to abandon the project.
This project is seen as a sacrilege by the families of 10,000 soldiers from around the world who sacrificed their life in this place to save France from tyranny.
The construction is expected to start in early 2014,the impact on these world-famous heritage sites is unacceptable.
