Thursday, 3rd May 2012, London
Kick Nuclear, Stop Nuclear Power Network and friends are asking anti-nuclear activists from around the country to mobilise for this and to join them as part of the 'Dirty Energy' bloc at The Big Six Energy Bash in central London on Thursday 3rd May, to give EDF Energy and chums a right ole bashin' and expose nuclear power as the false, dirty, dangerous and undemocratic 'solution' to climate change that it is.
Our anti-nuclear bloc's theme will be Nuclear Grim Reapers and Liquidators, so come suitably attired if possible! We will meet at 10.15am outside the Black Friar pub
Once suited and booted, we will move off to the nearby assembly point for the Dirty Energy bloc - outside City Thameslink station (Ludgate Hill exit), for 11am.
If you are thinking of joining the anti-nuclear bloc, please get in touch with Kick Nuclear beforehand (well beforehand if you are going to need crash space, or a bed, the night before and/or after the action)

People not Profit
We want to end the stranglehold that the Big Six energy
companies have on energy in this country. Corporate control
of energy is unfair, insanely short sighted, and always puts
profits ahead of the needs of people and our environment:
the Big Six’s profiteering is killing thousands in the UK each
winter through fuel poverty, and millions across the world
through climate change.
The Big Six energy companies, hand in hand with the
government, and pushed by the mentality of growth
capitalism, are destroying the climate and the lives of millions
of people around the world. Climate justice means that those
who have caused climate change should take responsibility
for stopping it.
There is an alternative. It is down to ordinary people to take
action against corporate control and create an affordable,
sustainable, community-controlled energy system. We all
have the right to access to clean energy.
