'KEEP THE FAITH' IN RENEWABLE ENERGY
Government Minister Vernon Coaker, MP for Gedling, signs our graffiti wall - saying "Keep the faith it will happen".
This was part of a national day of action in October 2008. MPs were asked to urge the Prime Minister not to wriggle out of a commitment to invest in renewable energy.

STOP BIOFUELS TARGETS
In June 2008 East Midlands MEP Bill Newton-Dunn (centre) was lobbied by representatives from Friends of the Earth and Oxfam.
We were asking MEPs to vote against EU targets to increase the use of biofuels in road transport because there is increasing evidence that large-scale production of biofuels could:
destroy important habitats like rainforests
take food and land from the poorest people
increase climate change overall
