Event Details

Online Zoom Event:

Massive gas price hikes mean that millions are facing rising fuel poverty and, for some, the choice between keeping warm or eating. Meanwhile the oil and gas companies are raking in record profits. The government continues to shower them with cash subsidies and takes just a token amount off the bills of ordinary people.

With the impact of war on Ukraine on Russian supplies, the UK government and the oil companies want new oil and gas brought on stream rather than tackle our dependence on fossil fuels. This is a disastrous policy – it won’t work in the short-term, and it’s a route to climate destruction in the long-term.

We need a radically different approach, now!
