Fuel Poverty Action mass action Fri 28 November, 11:30am

From Izzy Koksal of FPA

Please join and share with your networks

On the day the government reveals how many people died last year from the effects of fuel poverty, join Fuel Poverty Action and Reclaim the Power to demand ‘No More Deaths from Fuel Poverty: Energy Rights Now!’
We’ll be meeting outside the Institute of Directors, on Pall Mall before marching to Energy UK – the body who represent and defend the Big Six profiteers, for an inclusive and creative action.
The day will end with a tutorial on knowing your energy rights and how to protect yourself and your community from energy companies.
In 2012/2013 10,000 people died from fuel poverty, including thousands of people in London, and we are likely to learn that thousands more died last winter. At the same time the Big Six energy companies made £3.7bn in profit – this is equal to £370,000 profit for every person who died.
Join us to express sadness, anger and solidarity with those who have suffered; and to point the finger at those responsible. We will end the day by empowering one another to fight for energy rights and energy justice.
We need affordable, sustainable and publicly and community owned energy. We don’t need greedy profiteers represented by Energy UK.
If you have mobility needs, would like a buddy for the day or would like to enquire about us possibly subsidizing your travel fare for the day, please get in touch by email: fuelpovertyaction@gmail.com

Can anyone insulate public opinion against smear stories about 'benefit claimants'?
