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.

Here's how you can help and show solidarity around EDF's civil action: http://goo.gl/nKWYX
