TOMORROW, as some of you may know, we are heading to Centrica, for a FUN demonstration starting at 11:00. We’ve chosen to target Centrica for a couple of reasons: but put simply:
- Centrica fund fracking company Cuadrilla, to the tune of around $16Mn last year alone
- Fracking funders Centrica own British Gas, who continue to raise their energy prices (£117 increase just announced this week), while cutting jobs, paying eye watering bonuses, and bullying people in their forced imposition of meters.
Our fun family friendly action will expose the links between finance, fracking and fuel poverty, with a fantastic performative fracking rig tour – complete with props, actors and a lot of laughs too. There will also be speeches from members of the Preston New Road site, Fuel Poverty Action & Reclaim the Power.

IF you are not on facebook, but would love to come – we will be meeting at 9AM at Paddington Station near the Upper Crust shop in the main station area. Look out for the woman in the colourful big puffa jacket – and, hopefully, the other people holding signs!
If you have any questions, please do ask – otherwise, we look forward to seeing you there!
