THESE campaigners staged ‘die ins’ in Huddersfield town centre to raise awareness of fuel poverty.
The event, organised by Kirklees Campaign Against Climate Change (KCCC), promotes the ‘Energy Bill Revolution’ campaign.
The campaign, set up by organisations including Age UK, The Co-operative, Asda, Ikea, British Heart Foundation, TUC, World Wildlife Fund and Stop Climate Chaos, aims to persuade the Government to spend the money it receives from carbon taxes on making homes more energy efficient.
Campaigners, wrapped in blankets, staged ‘die ins’ around the town centre to raise awareness about Brits who die during cold weather because they are unable to afford proper heating.
KCCC collected signatures at a stall in Market Place for Friends of the Earth’s campaign for Clean British Energy.
It is estimated that one in four UK households are in fuel poverty, where more than 10% of income is spent on heating.
