#Road2COP

On this journey, we will make a series of virtual stops in different African countries where we will meet with local communities, artists, organisers, and activists on the frontlines fighting to stop some of the continent’s most destructive and ill-thought-out coal, oil and gas, projects.

From musicians to frontline activists, outstanding speakers, and artists – everyone across the content is coming together to move towards a collective vision of recovery and justice. This will be a chance to hear how regular people are doing incredible things to protect their lands, communities, and the climate.

The fight doesn’t begin at COP27, and it doesn’t end there either. For the coming weeks, communities fighting fossil fuel projects could use all the support, love and encouragement they can get to keep fighting. 

UPCOMING ACTIONS

Fossil Free Virunga

When: 8th December

What: Artivism Event – Music and Poetry.

We want to reignite the flame of activism in our art. This offline event will feature a host of incredible artists, poets, musicians as well as frontline climate activists, and other powerful speakers all calling on Félix Tshisekedi, President of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to cancel the tendering of 27 oil and 3 gas blocks blocks.

Make sure to leave your details and we will be in touch with you on how to take action to support activists and communities at the front line of this fight.

EACOP: A crude reality

 

EACOP: A crude reality” puts the spotlight on the negative socio-economic and environmental impacts posed by the planned East African Crude Oil Pipeline. The film features the testimonies of communities directly affected by the Total Energies’ mega project as well as activists raising alarm on the threats posed by the pipeline to livelihoods, sensitive ecosystems and the climate. The pipeline, which will run from Hoima in Uganda to Tanga in Tanzania has been the center of controversy globally, following sustained opposition by community members and climate activists.

Climate activists under the #StopEACOP coalition have been unrelenting in calling on financial institutions to distance themselves from the proposed pipeline, resulting in 24 commercial banks and 18 (re)insurers committing to not supporting the project.

Learn more about the #StopEACOP campaign and how to host a screening of the film on.

COP27 through the eyes of Tumi 😊

Hey I’m Tumi Masipa from 350Africa.org. After an exciting journey on the #Road2COP, we have made it to the UN climate talks #COP27 – in Egypt :smiley:.

Now that we are here, we are looking forward to getting involved in daily climate actions and joining activists in the climate justice movement calling for climate action. Stay tuned to our live blog, where I will be bringing COP to your screens so you can see first-hand what will be happening over the next two weeks in the world’s biggest climate summit. Look forward to meeting African climate activists who will be featured in the blog as part of the “#Road2COP: with African activists.”  I will be profiling 5 African climate activists to hear about their climate justice campaigns and find out about the issues that matter to them. Also, make sure to follow me on Monday 14 in a “Day in the life at COP” as I take you through what a day typically looks like at COP.

Prepare yourself to witness the chaos!:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:Be sure to stay tuned for daily updates on what’s happening at COP!
