11th October to 11th November 2013
A global month of action on energy is starting…
Friends of the Earth have joined with international groups to organise a global month of action on energy.
They say that we face a planetary emergency and are heading for catastrophic levels of climate change.
Around the world people are uniting to respond to the crisis – but we need to reach more people, link up and scale up our actions.
From 11th October to 11th November people around the world will be calling for:
- A global ban on all new dirty energy projects
- An end to tax payer hand outs to dirty energy companies
- Support to be redirected to community and decentralised energy systems
- Key dates during the month of action.
Key dates during the month of action:
October 11 – Actions calling for a stop to public subsidies for dirty energy companies.
October 16 – World Food Day: Day of Actions against Agrofuels.
October 19 – Global Frackdown Day: Day of Actions against Fracking. Our local groups will be hitting the streets across the UK inviting people to tell their council why fracking is a dirty word.
