FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Today at 8:45, Climate activists, some naked, have occupied the roof and window of Edelman PR on 105 Victoria St(1), the firm behind EON’s glossy green spin on Kings north (2) power station. The world’s largest independent PR company are helping EON in their efforts to rebuild Kingsnorth into the first coal fired power station the UK has seen in 30 years. Activists have occupied the lobby and the entrance to demonstrate the truth behind EON’s Kingsnorth campaign, that we cannot continue to
burn coal, the world’s dirtiest fossil fuel, in the face of catastrophic climate change. (3)
Alice Fielding says “Edelman PR are nothing more than new coal spin doctors. Intent on making profit out of EON’s activities at the expense of the global climate.”
Notes to Editors
