Thanks to the historic struggle by the nations of the Global South, COP 27 ended with a commitment to develop a fund for the “loss and damage” wrought by extreme weather in the semi-colonial world, but the fund remains without structure, without money, and without the rich emitting nations assuming liability. This shameful conclusion makes it all the more important that the U.S. climate justice movement prioritize solidarity with the powerful movements being led by organizations defending working people and farmers against fossil fuel giants on the African continent.
One of those struggles centers on the East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP). 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. A powerful #STOPEACOP alliance, that includes 350 Africa, has been formed. Join us to learn and plan out solidarity action.
