Shut down EDF conference CANCELLED (they’ve shut it down themselves! read on for more…)
Date(s) - 01/05/2013
This action has been postponed as EDF have rescheduled their conference for Oct, after being warned by police that May 1 is a traditional day of protest, therefore an unsuitable date for dirty energy corporations to party in the city.
“I want to express my gratitude to EDF for their decision to take out a civil lawsuit against protesters who occupied the first of 40 proposed new gas-fired plants in the coalition government’s reckless dash for gas… This lawsuit, its threat to our precious right to civil disobedience and EDF’s plans to massively expand fossil fuel infrastructure is exactly the shot in the arm that the climate action movement needed to mobilise in multitudes once more.” – reader’s letter to the Guardian
EDF Energy’s annual Talk Power conference (www.letstalkpower.com) is scheduled for Wednesday 1st May in central London.
In solidarity with the brave No Dash for Gas campaigners (www.nodashforgas.org.uk), currently being sued by EDF for £5million, we’re going to shut it down. Will you join us?
More details soon!
