Remember how the protesters abseiled into the flues of the EDF West Burton gas-fired plant and lived inside the chimneys, blocking the plant’s scheduled opening the following day and stopping 20,000 tonnes of CO2 over the course of their week-long occupation?
They, and all of us, fought off EDF’s £5 million lawsuit.
However the 21 activists are being sentenced at Nottingham Magistrates Court on this Thursday 6th June.
Join the Protest outside Nottingham Magistrates court.
We would love to see loads of people outside the court on the day, from 9.45 am, to peacefully support these brave activists who face possible jail terms for aggravated trespass – the first time activists will have been jailed in the UK for peaceful protest. For further details visit the Nottingham GreenPeace site.
Protest in London outside EDF that evening.
Join us from 6pm outside EDF’s offices on Victoria St to show them that they can’t jail us all. Cardinal Place, 80 Victoria street, London. Here’s Facebook event info
Hope you can make one the protests. Please tell others using all the usual means.
