Today the government revealed how many excess winter deaths there were last year. Fuel Poverty Action and Reclaim the Power are holding a demonstration in London, along with providing information on energy rights and advice on how to protect yourself and your community.

From Fuel Poverty Action:

“Despite a mild winter and ‘relatively mild flu season’ there were still more than 18,000 Excess Winter Deaths last year- meaning that more than 6,000 people in the UK died from the impacts of a cold home.
We think this is an outrage. Join us today to demand change.”
