The Climate Choir Movement

Houses of Parliament

7 March 2024Stop Rosebank! No drilling in the North Sea! Over a hundred Climate Choir singers entered the Houses of Parliament in an extraordinary action to sing in protest against a new oil field that will emit tonnes of carbon dioxide and whose profits will largely go to the Norwegian company Equinor. Choirs from all over the UK surged through Westminster Hall to St Stephen’s Hall near the centre of power and struck up a Handel-inspired chorus that stopped MPs, security staff and visiting public in their tracks. Outside, fellow singers reinforced the message (the day after the budget) that green energy is cheaper and better and the government MUST listen up.
