Insure our Future, Not Fossil Fuels!
As part to Insure our Future’s Global Week of Action, climate activists from a variety of groups will be holding an action in Manchester to ask insurance companies not to insure new fossil fuel projects, in particular the East African Crude Oil Pipeline and the West Cumbria Coalmine.
When: Friday March 1st from 11.30 – 14.00
Meeting Place (map) We will be gathering outside John Rylands Library, 150 Deansgate, Manchester M3 3EH at 11.30 and then proceeding together to our first insurance company to start the action at 12.00.
Outside each insurance building we will do a short piece of street theatre to represent the dilemma facing insurance companies. Will they continue to insure climate damaging fossil fuel projects that are already causing widespread suffering and death? Or will they take an ethical stand, rule out insuring new fossil fuel projects, and instead ensure a just transition to a greener, fairer, liveable world for everyone?
What path will they choose??
This will be a peaceful, family friendly action. All are welcome. Just turn up!
