#AxeDrax protest in york, Wed, 25th April
From 10.30 am to 2.30 pm, climate and energy justice campaigners will be gathering outside the AGM of Drax Plc, held at the Grand Hotel & Spa, Station Rise, York, with placards, speakers and music.
Drax power station is the biggest burner of wood for electricity in the world, damaging forests and biodiversity, polluting communities (including York) and making climate change worse. It’s still burning coal and has plans for a huge expansion into gas burning. All of these are incompatible with a good outcome on climate change.
Join us to highlight this to the general public, investors and the news media. Together with Coal Action Network, Yorkshire campaigners against fracking and other activists, we will leaflet attenders, hold a lively banner protest and explain why Drax is not part of the solution.
