StandardBank is the only African bank funding the EACOP pipeline. Now together, we're calling on them to stop. What action would you like to take?

4 of 5 #SouthAfrican banks say they will not be involved in @TotalEnergies’ East Africa pipeline. Do you want to be the only bank remembered for generations to come for speeding up the climate crisis @StandardBankZA? #StopEACOP 👉 https://www.stopeacop.net/
The whole world is waking up to the fact that we need to stop burning fossil fuels. The price of oil will continue to plummet. It doesn’t make sense to fund a dying industry @StandardBankZA #StopEACOP https://www.stopeacop.net/
Time to listen @StandardBankZA. A pipeline through east Africa, next to our largest water source, would destroy lives. It would endanger wildlife & biodiversity. It's time to #StopEACOP and protect lives. https://www.stopeacop.net/
Building the world’s longest heated crude oil pipeline in the midst of a climate emergency would be grossly irresponsible. That’s why banks are saying no to financing it - time to do the same @StandardBankZA #StopEACOP https://www.stopeacop.net/
Hi @StandardBankZA, please make sure you’re on the right side of history - don’t fund the East African Crude Oil Pipeline. In the middle of a #climatecrisis, it would be indefensible #StopEACOP https://www.stopeacop.net/
The East African Crude Oil Pipeline will destroy nature. It will harm people in Uganda and far beyond. Banks are pulling out because this project is a liability. Now’s your turn @StandardBankZA #StopEACOP https://www.stopeacop.net/
A responsible bank would not provide support for a fossil fuel project that threatens the water resources and livelihoods of millions of people in the Lake Victoria basin, @StandardBankZA #StopEACOP https://www.stopeacop.net/
Hi @StandardBankZA don’t fund a pipeline that would transport enough oil to generate over 34 million extra tons of carbon emissions each year. Be on the right side of history instead. #StopEACOP https://www.stopeacop.net/
Barclays, Credit Susse, Royal Bank of Canada. The list goes on. Banks are refusing to fund the irresponsible #EACOP pipeline and @StandardBankZA should be next - if they want to be on the right side of history. #StopEACOP https://www.stopeacop.net/
The East African Crude Oil Pipeline will mean 100,000 people in #Uganda and #Tanzania will lose the land they rely on for farming and animal raising. Many will be forcibly removed from their homes. Are you going to fund that @StandardBankZA? https://www.stopeacop.net/
Please do not forget to also send an email to StandardBank. We need to show them the scale of the opposition this project faces, in solidarity with affected communities and civil society in Uganda, Tanzania, and neighbouring countries.
