7 in 10 Europeans are struggling and 1 in 10 are skipping meals this winter. At the same time fossil fuel companies have already announced over €180 billion in profit
Let those numbers sink in.
Whilst hundreds of millions of us are on the brink of energy poverty, the culprits of this crisis are making a killing at our expense. We have been left in the dark by EU inaction: paying the price for a failed, outdated, fossil fuelled energy system.
But as bills rise, so do we. People across Europe have been coming together to say enough is enough.
It's time to put people's need over corporate greed.
This is why, on the 27th and 28th of February, we're organising a 2 days event to stand in solidarity and demand EU decision makers listen and act on the solutions from trade unions, anti-poverty networks and climate groups on the frontlines of the energy crisis. Good news is? You can join our call for #PeopleOverPolluters online and in person!
