The collective that oppose the company Drax. We are direct action groups, local campaigns and individuals.
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 protected] and someone will try and link you up to other people.
We plan and do actions. We protest. We make noise. We get embarrassed. And when we must, we disrupt.
You don’t have to physically take part in any action, and you definitely don’t have to do anything illegal unless you want to. There are always thing to do, plan, organise that will need people. We are going up against the a climate wrecking billion dollar company that deploys every ‘lobbying technique’ in the book. It is going to take work.

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.
