Pro Tip: When organizing a protest which will cause disruptions in the middle of a major city, make sure you have the correct address.
The protest group, Reclaim the Power didn’t do the very basic research before staging a protest in London, England a few days ago.
The activists were hoping to target an energy company, Drax, over plans to build a new gas power station fueled in north Yorkshire. The protest was a part of a larger-scale event with several satellite protests at separate locations owned by Drax and another energy company, SSE.
Reclaim the Power was protesting the energy company but also included in their protest were companies “involved in deportation” which explains their bizarre banner.
Members of protest group Reclaim the Power dressed in white boiler suits and swarmed Moorgate during rush hour, unfurling a banner reading: “No Borders, No Nations, No Gas Power stations.”
The group was protesting against energy company Drax over plans to build a new power station in north Yorkshire.
Watch a video of the protest here:
According to an employee in the building that Reclaim the Power was protesting, the group had approximately 200 protesters that were blocking streets and chanting.
Unfortunately, Drax had moved its London headquarters a few blocks over about a year ago.
So, who was the target of their protest?
A renewable energy company.
One of the companies still based at 41 Moorgate is Statkraft, a Norwegian hydropower company which describes itself as “Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy”.
An employee at the company, who asked not to be named, said protesters had chained themselves to doors at the front of the building.
The protesters were able to find their way to a gas power station. It’s unclear if they traveled the 180 miles without using fossil fuels.
At the same time, 180 miles away in Lincolnshire, Reclaim the Power activists also blocked SSE’s new Keadby 2 gas power plant.
The group said protesters occupied two cranes, stopping work on the new plant, which is said to be the only one under construction in the UK.
Reclaim the Power said they were protesting Drax’s and SSE’s “role in driving the climate crisis”.
SSE, the company that they interrupted construction on, is committed to addressing climate change. A spokesperson spoke to the Evening Standard:
“SSE’s business strategy addresses the challenge of climate change at its core, as the leading developer, owner and operator of renewable energy across the UK.
However, we understand that flexible thermal generation will play a critical role in the transition to ‘net zero’ emissions, particularly with the emerging potential for carbon capture and storage technologies.
“When completed, we expect Keadby 2 to be the cleanest and most-efficient gas-fired power station in Europe, displacing less efficient plant from the system, complementing our renewable assets, and safeguarding customers’ power supplies.”

Even if their ideas weren’t complete nonsense, how are we supposed to take these no borders, no fossil fuels activists seriously? They can’t even get the address right!
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
