Clean British Energy: Final Week

Sample Advert

Friends of the Earth Clean British Energy campaign is in the final week. Thank you for all your fantastic activism on the campaign so far. You’ve helped us secure the support of almost 300 MPs – we only need around 25 more to win.

We now know that MPs are going to vote on the clean power target on Tuesday 4th June. That gives us just 1 week to pile the pressure on. We believe that with a final push from dedicated campaigners like you, we can win this.

If you or your group can help in this final week, here’s what we’d love you to do:

 

  1. Phone your MP this week to ask them to vote for a clean power target. We realise calling your MP’s office can be daunting, but in all likelihood you’ll be speaking to their researcher, rather than the MP. So it can be as simple as leaving a message.  Here’s how to do it:
    1. Look up your MPs phone number by typing your postcode into Our Green Map
    2. Call up and explain that you’re one of their constituents
    3. Ask if they’ll vote to support a clean power target. If they say no, ask them why not.
    4. Ask if they’ll be at the Report Stage vote in Parliament on Monday 3rd – Tuesday 4th June
    5. Tell us how it went [simon.tiller@foe.co.uk]. Even if you’ve left a message we’d like to know.

 

  1. On Monday 3rd June we’ll be taking part in a Twitter action with Stop Climate Chaos members and green businesses. If you’re on Twitter please join in. Just type in your postcode to our Green Map and by selecting the Twitter link it will automatically generate a direct tweet to your MP using the hashtag #Vote4CleanPower
