Why an energy bills strike?
We’re facing a catastrophe on an unimaginable scale this winter. We’ll strike to break this system that stands by while people rack up debt or freeze in their homes.
What is Don't Pay?
Millions of us won’t be able to afford our energy bills this winter. We can't let that happen. Don’t Pay exists to bring us all together, build our leverage and fight back.
No one gets paid to organise this, we're a grassroots campaign running everything in our spare time. If you can afford to do so, please consider donating to help us cover our operating costs (such as our website, email list and subsidising leaflets and posters).
