BREAKING: INSULATE BRITAIN RETURNS TO BLOCK M25 FOR THIRD DAY THIS WEEK

BREAKING: INSULATE BRITAIN RETURNS TO BLOCK M25 FOR THIRD DAY THIS WEEK 


Insulate Britain has blocked the M25 for the third day this week with an action at Junction 30. 


This follows an action on Tuesday at Heathrow and two actions yesterday at Swanley (Junction 3).


A spokesperson for Insulate Britain said:


“ We are raising the tempo this week as, despite the urgency of the situation, there has been no meaningful response from the government to our demands. We are deeply concerned that with rising fuel bills and not enough action on insulation, there will be further unnecessary suffering and deaths among the most vulnerable this winter.


“It's not just cold and hungry Britain, it's billions of pounds wasted on fuel costs for everyone. Failing to help hardworking families, failing to stop poverty fuel deaths, failing to protect the country we love from the biggest threat it has ever faced. We need our government to keep us safe. Boris, get on with the job.”



Today’s actions are in breach of a High Court injunction imposed on 22nd September, which prohibits “causing the blocking, endangering, slowing down, obstructing or otherwise preventing the free flow of traffic onto or along the M25 motorway for the purpose of protesting.”

About Insulate Britain


Insulate Britain is a new campaign group that is calling on the UK government to put in place policy and funding for a national home insulation programme starting with all social housing. 


We demand the Prime Minister and the government to #getonwiththejob, face up to their responsibility and lead our country through the climate crisis.


We are ordinary British citizens with simple and achievable demands to #INSULATEBRITAIN


The UK government must immediately promise to fully fund and take responsibility for the insulation of all social housing in Britain


We demand a national home insulation strategy that gives British people the justice they deserve: a future for our loved ones, lower energy bills and safer living conditions


We are scared: our livelihoods are at risk and the futures of our children are uncertain

The Climate Crisis is a threat to all: we demand the government to act now


Our Demands

1. That the UK government immediately promises to fully fund and take responsibility for the insulation of all social housing in Britain by 2025;

2. That the UK government immediately promises to produce within four months a legally binding national plan to fully fund and take responsibility for the full low-energy and low-carbon whole-house retrofit , with no externalised costs, of all homes in Britain by 2030 as part of a just transition to full decarbonisation of all parts of society and the economy.
