It's time. Just weeks after COP26, Paid to Pollute claimants, Mikaela, Kairin, and Jeremy are taking the UK Government to court for the billions it wastes propping up the oil and gas industry.
It's time to pull the plug on public money for big polluters.
Agree? Support the case and take action now.
Dear Prime Minister and Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng,
We need to use public money to support a managed phase out of oil and gas production, decent green jobs and a just transition for workers and affected communities. It’s time to stop propping up the fossil fuel industry.
I call on you to end unfair tax handouts for big polluters and to redirect that money to the people and places that need it most - the communities that can lead and shape a greener, fairer future.
The longer you delay, the harder it will be to transition away. Now is your chance to deliver on your promise to build back better.
You have already taken the bold step of ending taxpayer support for fossil fuel projects overseas. Now, you must do the same at home.
The whole world is watching.
Support our case to end unfair tax breaks for big polluters.
Your donations will help us continue the legal fight and ensure public money isn't used to prop up oil and gas companies.
The UK has given almost £14bn in subsidies to the oil & gas industry since 2016. This has to end.
Join our #RoadToTheHighCourt Week of Action leading up to the big hearing date.
An in-person and livestreamed panel event with the three claimants in the case and supporting organisations. We’ll discuss each claimant's motivations for taking the case forward, what we hope to achieve and ways that you can get involved right now in groups fighting new fossil fuel extraction and building the real solutions that will get us out of the climate crisis.
The day before the Paid To Pollute case heads to the High Court, we’re hosting a rally in central London with speakers from the case, other climate activists fighting big polluters and those leading campaigns for a just transition.
The morning the case starts, we’ll gather outside the courts to cheer on and share messages of support ahead of the two days of the hearing.
We are inviting interested organisations to become an official supporter of the Paid to Pollute case as it makes its way through the courts and beyond. This would involve your logo being featured on the Paid To Pollute site, being updated on case developments and a request to amplify any big moments regarding the case through your channels.
You can see the full list of existing supporting organisations at the bottom of this page.
If you are interested in becoming a supporting organisation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
