#ClimateJustice #UK: All coal mining and imports can end today. Here’s why

UK: At Coal Action Network, we have always campaigned on the basis that coal mining for coal-fired power should end, now. Because of the impact on the climate, on human health, on human rights, on our environment and wildlife.

What we often come up against is the argument that whilst coal should end, we don’t have a replacement for it yet and since it will still be used for a little while, it still needs to be dug up.

We have always said that we need to push for alternatives to fossil fuels and to reduce our demand for them so that the day that coal mining is not needed can arrive sooner.

Our numbers were made up of members from various groups, including but not limited to the London Anarchist Federation, Earth Strike UK and the Revolutionary Communist Group.

#UK territory: The Meaning of #Anarchism – Events in #Nottingham on January 28 and February 4
