"We are not going to be left behind. We will continue touring across villages and cities enlightening communities about the impacts of coal."

— Khadija Shekuwe Save Lamu coordinator.

On May 24 and 25, we took actions in cities and towns across the continent for Africa Day to show the determination of the People of Africa to free themselves from foreign domination and exploitation. We demanded that our local leaders commit to building a fossil free Africa that puts people and justice before profits.

Our fight against fossil fuels is a pathway to a united African continent that seeks solutions beyond the tried and tested that’s proven to be destructive. The time for clean energy is now.

We don’t need another coal power plant in South Africa, we know that burning more coal will only lead to catastrophic climate impacts.

We are seeing a new generation emerge who are owning their moral authority, speaking courageously and demanding justice. Moments like this are good moments for reflection. Thousands of people don’t mobilize by accident. It is a sign of how far our movement has come in this fight.
