POWER TO THE PEOPLE! SOCIALIST ENERGY SUMMIT: SATURDAY 21ST MAY – GET YOUR TICKETS BOOKED NOW!

12noon-5pm  The Renfield Centre, 260 Bath Street, Glasgow  G2 4JP (Directions)

 

This important event is being held by Socialists For Independence (SFI) in conjunction with European Left and Democratic Left Scotland.

It will be an opportunity to talk and most importantly, organise around how we can fight back against the huge energy prices rises that increases fuel poverty and the next stage for the COP26 demands to fight climate change.  The recent ScotWind sale by the Scottish Government has provoked important debate about what sort of energy system we need in Scotland, both before and after independence, and how it can benefit the entire population especially the poorest.

We can’t go on like this. Global warming is threatening the planet and energy prices are going into the stratosphere.

We need a drastic root and branch change. To do that we have to understand how we create energy in Scotland and who owns our energy. This summit is the first step in developing an energy plan where the people in Scotland own and control energy production and consumption for the benefit of the people who live here.

Speakers include:
Maggie ChapmanScottish Green Party MSP
Stephen SmellieUNISON Scotland Depute Convenor
Roland KulkeTransform, European Left
⬩ Stuart Fairweather – Dundee Trades Council & Democratic Left Scotland
Alan McCombes

The event is open to anyone who has an interest in environmental issues and is concerned about how we in Scotland can effect positive change for both people and planet.
