Clausen calls on non-nationals to oust Greens

(JB) Clausen residents are urging neighbours to register to vote in a bid to end the misery caused by noise pollution in a popular clubbing area.

The Clausen Residents' Association launched the appeal after months of wrangling with local authorities over the use of outdoor terraces in the Rives de Clausen.

It hopes that if non-national residents register to vote in this October's communal elections, the district can defeat the Green party coalition, which they blame for the trouble, and restore peace to the area.

The appeal was met with some confusion by the aldermen on the Ville de Luxembourg council, who say that residents have never asked for terraces to be banned at the Rives de Clausen, merely that they are no longer used after 11pm.

Furthermore, the representatives pointed out that businesses which have so far not adhered to this rule have been taken to court.

The residents' group also objects to a plan to construct a lift relaying cyclists from Pfaffenthal to the city centre.
