BRING DOWN THE BIG SIX: FUEL POVERTY KILLS
Bring Down the Big Six: Fuel Poverty Kills!
Outside the Royal Exchange, by Bank Station, to march to NPower offices together
Join Fuel Poverty Action, UK Uncut, the Greater London Pensioners’ Association and Disabled People Against Cuts for an outrageous, creative and inclusive protest against fuel poverty deaths on November 26th at 11.30am in Central London.
We’re meeting outside the Royal Exchange, by Bank Station at 11.30. We will then march, together, to our Big Six target.
If you have any mobility needs, would like support on the day, would like a buddy, please do get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
On November 26th, the number of people who died last winter from cold homes will be announced. But we won’t stand for any more unnecessary deaths caused by price-hiking, polluting, profiteering, tax avoiding energy companies. So join us as we take to the streets in central London to target one of the main energy robbers driving fuel poverty.
As the Big Six energy companies hike up prices we are told the only answer is to put on a jumper, leaving millions of us to choose between heating and eating. While the energy companies spread the lie that ‘green taxes’ are to blame, we know that the real problem is the privatisation of our energy for profit and the skyrocketing cost of dirty fossil fuels.
So bring your kids, neighbours, grandparents, your warmest jumper and your latest energy bill — and come join the fightback for the alternatives: warm, insulated homes and clean, affordable energy. It’s time to bring down the Big Six and put power back in people’s hands.
See you on the streets.
