No power cuts planned this winter in the United Kingdom, but invoices that increase and increase: +50% in one year, and the price should still be enhanced in the spring. So associations are mobilizing to claim more actions. This Saturday, December 3, throughout the country, “warm-ups” were organized, occupations of public places. In London, the British Museum was chosen.

With our correspondent in London, emeline wine

sitting in a circle, a dozen activists deploy their banners in the hall of the museum.

The British will be able to see the queen's coffin in front of the coffin, after a procession led by Charles III.

Organizer, Alex belongs to environmental and purchasing power groups.

We occupy public spaces to warm up. It's a bit like the sit-in of the 1970s. We want to raise awareness of the energy crisis that arrives, we prevent: people are going to be cold and hungry this winter at home.

The British Museum is targeted because of its sponsor, the oil giant BP, which records record profits.

Sioux Vosper, a large green coat on his back, had to give up his Christmas tree this year, to be able to pay the bills.

They doubled. This is the first time that I have participated in an action, because my son is disabled. And people with disabilities need additional money to be able to use their machines. At the moment, they must choose between their machines or the heating of their house. It's not correct.

Among tourists, Kate seizes a prospectus. She prefers this mode of action to recent blockages of the capital's roads.

If you want to convince people, you shouldn't disturb their days. A calm action like this, where I am given resources and what to think, I find it better.

Other activists also "occupied" the largest London shopping center this Saturday.
