Take back the power
Mission: Get to the control room and take back the power!
While the workers receive pitiful pay rises, the bosses of plants like Ratcliffe are raking in record profits. It’s time to kick start a just transition to a clean energy world by building the real solutions to climate change.
Footsteps to the future
Mission: Get to the main gate and create your vision of a better future!
A bloc for the young, old and all in between to create a vision for a future beyond fossil fuels. Efficient and renewable, this bloc will be a space to show the solutions. From bike powered sound systems to solar showers, come, conceive and create.
Mission: Get to the coal pile and expose the false solutions!
Coal is not the answer! The only real solution to climate change is to stop burning the fossil fuels that are causing it! Let’s expose the greenwash and technofixes. Come armed with green paint! Or how about a net to capture and store some coal?! Whatever your tools and methods, decommission that coal!
Bike Bloc: The Roaming Riders of Resistance
Mission: To reclaim the streets, to reclaim the highways, to be the Swoop's road patrol.
The Bike Bloc will be a river of pedal powered resistance machines, a post capitalist bike gang and an art bike carnival. Calling all bike lovers, bike hackers, bike trailers, climate campers and sound sytems! Once at the power station we’ll boom pedal powered tunes, cycle the streets as our fancy takes us and be on call for the rest of the blocs. See a high vis van? Then call the roving resistance machine to block its path with a critical mass!
Capitalism is crisis
Mission: Get anywhere in or around the power station and choose your own adventure! This is the decentralised option.
Through the fences; up the chimney; in the water. You’ve got your own ideas about making this a spectacular action. Do what you can and how you want. The economic and climate crises are linked. Capitalism is a root cause of climate change and cannot be the solution!
