Taking DRAXtic Action: Wednesday 24th April

Stop burning biomass and coal and stop fuelling fuel poverty!

Biofuel Watch are calling for an action to be held outside the DRAX Annual General Meeting, to highlight the absurdity of converting the power station from coal fire powered to biomass.

This is falsely described as part of the solution to the energy crisis, when in fact it only deepens the damage we are doing to our forests and woodland, ensures that energy prices stay unaffordable and does not help us to meet our climate change targets.

Fighting back for renewables: Dorset pro-wind protesters

On 14 January, a group called 'Challenge Navitus' organised a demonstration on Swanage seafront, the site of a proposed 100-330 offshore wind turbine project called Navitus Bay. So far, the usual story of anti-wind propaganda and nimbyism. But this occasion was notable for the presence of another group - the pro-wind demonstrators also turned out in force. Although there were fewer - 100 as opposed to around 300 anti-wind protestors, by bringing together local groups, this demonstration has the potential to revitalise local campaigning for climate action and clean energy.
