Axe Drax AGM demonstration, 13 April 2017, London and York

Drax is a dangerous waste of bill payers’ money, receiving £1.5 million in subsidies every day to destroy forests and contribute to climate change. Drax burns more wood than any other power station in the world, and more coal than any in the UK.

Join us for a colourful protest in London to coincide with Drax’s AGM on Thursday 13 April.

In a surprise move, Drax is holding its AGM in York this year (let us know if you’d like to be there). We will visit Drax’s two largest investors in the city of London to let them know that they are pouring money away, and trashing forests and our climate at the same time. And now Drax is also expanding into gas power plants, thus adding a third dirty and destructive form of energy to its portfolio.

We don’t want this – we want renewable energy subsidies to go towards real renewables, like wind, solar and tidal, and to energy efficiency schemes.

We will be having at least one meeting and one prop-making session before the AGM, so watch this space, or London Biomassive on Facebook, for more details.

For more information about Drax, see our detailed #AxeDrax campaign page, or watch this short movie by Jo Syz. For more information about the impacts of coal, see coalaction.org.uk.

More details to come – watch this space, or see the Facebook event page for updates.

There will also be a demo outside the AGM itself in York, at the Royal York Hotel from 10.30am, organised by our allies in the area. See the Facebook event here for more details.

We hope to see you at one of these events!
