Power to the People: Protest against energy price rises

The Power to the People slogan comes from the Left in the European Parliament and the European Left Party who have a really informative video about the European Energy Market here:
While the UK left the European Energy Market with Brexit, energy prices in the UK are based on the European and global markets and are still influenced by supplies from the EEA/EU (gas from Norway, electricity from France, the single energy market in Ireland).
