        Part 3 of 3. How do we fight Fuel Poverty? What are we doing, what can we do, and what must be done? See Part One (What Is It): vimeo.com/fffpvideo/part1 This three-part documentary brings together three individuals, all of them affected or threatened by fuel poverty – the condition of not being able to afford basic levels of electricity and gas, to feed yourself, to heat and clean your home. Fuel Poverty is common to their different experiences – as being disabled, being a single mother, being a woman of colour. It is also a political reality which all three are in a position to fight back against. _______________________________________________ To speak or act on the situation - or your situation - contact Fuel Poverty Action at fuelpovertyaction.org.uk

                    Direct action n. "The strategic use of immediately effective acts, such as strikes, demonstrations, or sabotage, to achieve a political or social end." This is the first in a 3 part series exploring the lives of 3 activists and the different methods they employ to fight their cause and create their mark upon society; with advice and inspiration for those wishing to become involved themselves. We begin with Marina Pepper, well known in her community as a stringent environmental activist and campaigner. She often takes a direct role in groups such as Climate Camp, Climate Rush and most recently at Balcome Fracking.Born in 67, she has stood as a Liberal Democrat local politician, worked as a journalist, children’s book writer and was a former page3 model and actress. This is a story on how she became involved in direct action, how she goes about it, and why she believes that it is important. Enjoy. ...apologies for the sound quality…...

                      3.1.14, Animal Liberation Front Israel (ALF Israel) held a shocking demo involving an already dead calf, a byproduct of the bloody dairy industry, a staged butchering, real voices of dying animals on tape, fake blood, and real live audience - bypassers. No eye remained dry, no man remained untouched. Extremely notable was a 40 year old lady who was passing by, and happened to be a vegetarian. She then gave a spontaneous heartbreaking speech, calling meat eaters to ditch their bloody habits, explaining them that this is what they, and they alone, are responsible for.
