REVOLT (Rural England Versus Over-head Line Transmission) aims to increase public awareness of the anti-pylon campaign by spotlighting the main issues, as well as generating or responding to new developments. While some of the very technical background is surprisingly well understood, there is still a good deal of confusion and misinformation amongst the public which should be addressed. REVOLT   hopes that news editors will find these releases with contact numbers and photo opportunities will provide ample media copy.
