Come along and join us for a deli­cious 3 course organ­ic vegan meal, live music and enter­tain­ments through the night, provided by the Coal Action Scotland col­lect­ive. The event is to help raise funds and spread aware­ness about the massive expan­sion of the coal industry in Scotland. Bring your friends, your col­leagues, your fam­ily… and their fam­il­ies!

We try to make all our events as access­ible to every­body as pos­sible and as such we are happy to cater for any diet­ary or access­ib­il­ity require­ments that you or your friends may have. We just ask that you let us know in advance so we can pre­pare for these properly.

All pro­ceeds go to CAS, a col­lect­ive which exists to chal­lenge the dev­ast­at­ing expanse of the coal industry through­out Scotland. Coal is one of the most car­bon intens­ive indus­tries and cur­rent rates of extrac­tion, trans­port­a­tion and com­bus­tion are hav­ing dra­mat­ic effects on loc­al and glob­al eco­sys­tems and the environment.
All these pro­cesses have equally hor­rif­ic effects on human health both here in Scotland and through­out the world.
Despite these facts and because of hypo­crit­ic­al gov­ern­ment policies, much of the indus­tri­al world is still inex­tric­ably linked to coal and Scotland is no dif­fer­ent. We at CAS exist to chal­lenge the reli­ance on this unsus­tain­able fossil fuel and work towards cre­at­ing pos­it­ive solu­tions with com­munit­ies who pay the true costs of the coal; the fuel which per­petu­ates and cata­lyses our cur­rent course of eco­cide and plan­et­ary collapse.
