Urgent call out for an important demo this Saturday.
Organised by Fossil Free London
It’s Crunch-Time For Rosebank – join the demo!
Start: Saturday, July 15, 2023• 2:00 PM
Department for Energy Security & Net Zero• 1 Victoria St, London, SW1E 5ND
Rosebank is the largest undeveloped oil field in the North Sea, and Norwegian oil giant Equinor wants to drill it. If approved, it would be a climate disaster, producing the same emissions the world’s 28 lowest-income countries do in a year.
And since what’s left in the North Sea is mostly oil, and companies export 80% of the oil produced there, it won’t even help UK households struggling with their energy bills.
Climate scientists, the International Energy Agency, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres – they all agree that to avoid climate catastrophe, we can’t afford new fossil fuel extraction. No new oil and gas fields. No new coal mines. But the government still hasn’t got the message.
Rosebank could be approved any day now. Join the march to tell our government and Equinor that we won’t allow Rosebank to go ahead.
Meet outside the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (1 Victoria St, SW1H 0NE) at 2pm. March to Equinor UK (1 Kingdom St, W2 6BD).
This is a substantial walk of 3.1 miles or around 1 hour at Google Maps pace so if you have mobility issues there’s the option to just join at DESNEZ 14.00 – 14.45.
