The Green Anticapitalist Front does Lockdown – Livestream: Interview with Fuel Poverty Action
1 December, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
GAF is reacting to the Covid-19 lockdown and enforced social distancing, by moving online. We are doing a series of lifestreams about a variety of subjects and groups that we hope will provide food for constructive discussion and inspiration for action.
Episode 12: Interview with Fuel Poverty Action
Fuel Poverty Action is a group of ordinary people fed up with being robbed by greedy energy companies through spiralling bills, and rip-off prepayment meters. Alongside pensioners groups, disabled campaigners, and others on the frontline of fuel poverty, they are using protest and direct action to fight for real solutions to the cold homes crisis. They take action for warm, well-insulated homes and clean and affordable energy, under the control of people and communities, not private companies.
As we move into the long cold winter with so many people hit by loss of income, working from home and the closure of many social centres and public services that used to offer people a respite from their cold homes due to the pandemic, campaigns such as these become even more essential.

Twitch offers automated closed captions, although the quality of the transcription can be quite low at times. We also publish a recording of each livestream on the GAF Youtube channel after the event, and Youtube closed captions tend to be more reliable. It may take us a few days to upload the recording to Youtube, but if you’re keen to see it sooner, do get in touch, and we may be able to prioritise this.
