Saturday 7th October @ 11:45 am – 1:00 pm
The UK Government has just approved the Rosebank oil field.
As healthcare students and health workers, this directly matters to us. Join us on Saturday October 7th to show that the health community will not stand for new gas and oil. The protest starts at noon, and we will be meeting at 11.45 outside Queen’s Street station.
Please feel free to come in scrubs/stethoscopes, and create placards relevant to the climate crisis as a health crisis.
The WHO has forecast that without immediate and effective action, climate change will cause 250,000 additional deaths each year between 2030 and 2050 alone. Just like COVID-19, it is those with the least that are being affected the most by the climate crisis.
As direct witnesses to the health crises we face, we must take action to show that this destruction is not inevitable. There is no planetary health without human health, and wherever you work in healthcare, whatever your role in speciality, it will impact us and our patients.
People right across the UK want a reliable, affordable energy supply, not more oil and gas that puts all our futures at risk. Join this protest to pressure the UK to reverse their decision, and use every tool we can to delay and eventually stop this field.
Email Marina if you want to get in touch before Saturday.
