The Lewisham Town Hall Winter Warm-up

February 3, 2012

The Lewisham Town Hall Winter Warm-up

30-40 activists and residents from Lewisham occupied and Warmed-up inside Lewisham Town Hall. They staged a peoples’ forum inside, where people shared their experiences of unaffordable energy bills and expressed their anger at the profiteering energy companies and complicit government. People discussed the many examples of community controlled renewable energy projects across the country and how we might transition Lewisham and, more broadly, the UK, to a democratic energy system that works for people’s needs, not for corporate greed.

After the peoples’ forum, people moved outside and got even more toasty around a bonfire of burning energy bills!
