13) One more event added to the May’12 Agenda!!
this one in the UK scheduled for May 3rd
The Big Six Energy Bash- MASS ACTION!
THE IDEA: Climate Justice Collective takes to the streets to block the energy monopoly going on behind closed doors at the UK Energy Summit. Companies like EDF, Npower, EON and Scottish Power as well Shell and BP are conspiring with government to line their pockets at the cost of people locked in fuel poverty. The Big Six energy companies are the obstacle to democratic energy systems that could keep the sea levels down and get the heating on in fuel poverty homes. We want a socialized grid not a corporate monopoly – the UK Energy Summit cannot go ahead! by: http://climatejusticecollective.org/
