Posted on the 11 October 2013 by Dorsetenergized @dorsetenergized


11th October to 11th November 2013
A global month of action on energy is starting…

Friends of the Earth have joined with international groups to organize a global month of action on energy.

They say that we face a planetary emergency and are heading for catastrophic levels of climate change.

Around the world people are uniting to respond to the crisis – but we need to reach more people, link up and scale up our actions.

From 11th October to 11th November people around the world will be calling for:

  • A global ban on all new dirty energy projects
  • An end to tax payer hand outs to dirty energy companies
  • Support to be redirected to community and decentralised energy systems
  • Key dates during the month of action.

Key dates during the month of action:

October 11 – Actions calling for a stop to public subsidies for dirty energy companies.

October 16 – World Food Day: Day of Actions against Agrofuels.

October 19 – Global Frackdown Day: Day of Actions against Fracking. Our local groups will be hitting the streets across the UK inviting people to tell their council why fracking is a dirty word.

November 6 – Day of Action for People/Community Energy Alternatives – find out more on:

November 10 – Day of Action vs Oil (Anniversary of the death of Ken Saro Wiwa – Nigerian writer, environmental activist)

November 11 – start of the UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COP) climate talks in Warsaw, Poland.
