Fuel poverty action meeting - and a film with people around the country talking about austerity

With rising energy prices and people not able to afford to heat their homes, now is the time to join the fight against fuel poverty.

Tonight in Kentish Town, Fuel Poverty Action is meeting to talk about these issues. This is a great way to get involved if you're in London.

The meeting will cover:

• An introduction to Fuel Poverty Action for newcomers
• A discussion about public ownership of energy and whether this is what we should be calling for in the UK - what about community energy?
• A discussion about the next action for the “Winter of Action for Energy Justice”. Our first protest outside npower saw over 200 people out on the street calling for an end to the Big Six’s strangle hold on our lives, and democratically controlled renewables as a positive alternative.
• A few business items – a taster of what we’re working on over the winter.

The meeting will take place at:

Crossroads Womens Centre,
25 Wolsey Mews, (Just behind the Coop on Kentish Town Road)
Kentish Town,
