Stop EACOP – Trade union Briefing
Start: Monday, July 11, 2022• 6:30 PM • British Summer Time (GMT+01:00)
This is a virtual event
French oil giant Total and the China National Offshore Oil Corporation are on the cusp of building a massive crude oil pipeline right through the heart of Africa – displacing communities, endangering wildlife and tipping the world closer to full-blown climate catastrophe. It is called EACOP – the East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline and it needs to be stopped.
Local communities, human rights defenders and environmental activists are doing all they can to resist the pipeline, but they are facing increasing pressure and threats for speaking out against the corporate and political interests backing EACOP. We need to support their work and ensure their voices are heard loud and clear. The future is not about fossil fuels but sustainable and just alternatives driven for and by the people of East Africa.
What can Trade Unionists do to support the #StopEACOPcampaign?
Join our Trade Union Briefing to find out more. It is a collaboration between the Defund Climate Chaos coalition and the Stop EACOP campaign.
The #stopEACOP coalition, in support to and collaboration with frontline communities were so far able to get 20 banks, 7 insurers and 1 pension fund announcing they won’t support the project. We would love to have you onboard to take it a step further and see how unions can help stop this massive climate bomb.
