Who are Axe Drax?
We are the network that opposes Drax in it’s operations. We believe that disruption of their activities and business as usual is crucial,
We are decentralised.
Anyone can take action against Drax. We have no leaders. You don’t need to ask permission.
That being said, if you want help with an action or other plan then send an email to email@example.com and someone will try and link you up to other people.
We focus on actions.
We believe we need to stay focused on organising and taking part in actions.
This does not mean everyone needs to be taking to the streets, as all actions needs a range on roles from media, to support, to training and recruitment.
We have 3 simple demands:
- Tell the Truth: Biomass ≠ Green
- Defund Biomass
- Fund Real Solutions
Tell the Truth: Biomass ≠ Green
Governments and corporations be honest: biomass causes irreparable damage to the health of people and our life support systems. Classifying burning trees as renewable is a scam and the government is making us pay for it.
Remove the ££ billions in subsidies given to Drax and other biomass power stations in the UK. This money funds death and destruction around the world, harming POC and poorer communities the most whilst corporations profit. If we stop the money, we stop the destruction.
Fund Real Solutions
The £ billions given to biomass should be used to fund a just transition: furlough; retrain and transfer workers in the biomass industry; invest in education, affordable housing and health; fund genuine renewable energy. We must develop a plan of moving away from profit motives, which are fuelling the climate crisis, towards community based solutions.
