This Occupy protest, staged by Occupy The Media Billionaires will take place continuously
from 1pm on Friday 23rd October to 3.30pm Sunday 25th October.
It will be held outside the Daily Mail HQ, Derry Street, off Kensington High Street,
London, W8 5TT.
During Occupy Rupert Murdoch Week, we realised that all of the 5 right-wing billionaires'
media corporations were against urgent positive action on the climate crisis.
The media are crucial in the run-up to the crucial Paris climate crisis summit in
The fossil fuel lobbyists, oil corporations and corrupt politicians are destroying
any hope of meaningful climate crisis action in Britain with impunity, behind the
protection of the right-wing media billionaires.
In the last few months, the government has:
Cut support for cleaner cars.
Cut support for solar energy.
Abolished support for on-shore wind.
Abolished zero-carbon new homes regulations.
Abolished support for home energy efficiency - Green Deal.
Slashed already tiny budget for cycling.
Created new Oil & Gas Corporation to maximise fossil fuel exploration in UK.
Introduced taxation for renewable energy!!!
Are slashing taxes on fracking.
Abolished requirement for fracking corporations to have planning permission to drill
under our homes.
Allowed local planning committees to block local wind farms.
Introduced huge new subsidies for North Sea Oil exploration.
Subsidising off-shore oil exploration in Brazil.
Pouring billions into creating new roads.
Blocked billions of pounds of new off-shore wind-turbines.
Supporting disastrous Third Runway at Heathrow...
The billionaire press has created a massive climate action crisis in the UK.
We therefore desperately need the editors/owners of these four corporate media corporations
(Express/Telegraph/DailyMail/Sun- News UK) to support urgent action on the climate
crisis to save Britain and the wider global environment.
This peaceful Climate Crisis Vigil aims to reach out and help persuade Paul Dacre,
editor of The Daily Mail that his country and planet desperately need him to support
urgent action on the climate crisis.
