ENVIRONMENTAL and community activists are to stage a protest outside the Mossmorran oil and gas plant today, demanding that the site be shut over the “injustices” facing locals in Fife.
The protest will be held from 11am at the site near Cowdenbeath, Fife, after more than 380 complaints were filed with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency over unplanned “flaring” – the burning of excess gases and liquids – at the plant.
Organisers, including the Mossmorran Action Group, say that they hope to hold politicians to account over “their failure to protect communities against Shell and Exxon's environmental crimes,” with calls for the plant to be shut down.
A solidarity rally will also be held in Edinburgh, aimed at putting pressure on the Scottish government over the disruption caused by flaring.
Activists from Extinction Rebellion and Climate Camp Scotland will protest outside Holyrood in the light of travel restrictions between Edinburgh and Fife.
