Refuse Drax’s gas plans! Petition hand-in 4th April

Over 96,000 people have signed this petition to the Secretary of State at BEIS to say: ‘Refuse planning permission to Drax Power Station’s plans for the biggest gas power station in the UK which will emit vast amounts of CO2 until 2047!’

We will have a photogenic hand-over on 4th April in Westminster, with speakers, banners and a large visual prop, and everyone is invited. We will be gathering outside BEIS (1 Victoria Street, London SW1H 0ET) from 8am with a photo opportunity at 8.30.

If you haven’t already signed and shared the petition there is still time to make it as big as possible. For more background info on the project and why we’re objecting to it you can read our briefing

We also co-wrote an open letter to the Secretary of State that has been signed by nearly 90 organisations in the UK and internationally. Contact us if your organisation would like to sign up.
