EDF suing climate activists for £5 million
The environmental activists who last year protested against government plans to build 20 new climate killing gas-fired power stations in the UK are now being sued for £5 million by the French state-owned energy company EDF.
If EDF wins these activists face bankruptcy and the very possibility of losing their homes. Besides this personal tragedy, a win for EDF could also have far-reaching consequences for the whole environmental movement in the UK as it would deter other organizations from taking direct action.
