Stop The East African Crude Oil Pipeline

#StopEACOP campaign 22 August 2023

We're sending out an SOS because we need you to amplify the #StopEACOP campaign and urge China to step away from fossil fuel extraction in Africa, get with the times, and embrace renewables. We've got something big brewing on August 23rd, and we want you to be there.

The annual BRICS summit kicks off on today August 22nd in South Africa at the Sandton Convention Center. Economic leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa will be gathering to discuss BRICS and Africa: Partnership for Mutually Accelerated Growth, Sustainable Development and Inclusive Multilateralism - this year's theme.

During this high-profile meeting of major developing world blocks, we intend to let Chinese leaders know where we stand with their plans to destroy vulnerable communities in Africa. We want to reiterate that in the face of rapidly rising world temperatures and undeniable climate impacts, it is a lethal mistake to keep extracting fossil fuels.

Here’s What's Going Down:
The #StopEACOP Coalition and partners are rallying against the involvement of China and various Chinese companies in TotalEnergies' East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) that will devastate communities in Uganda and Tanzania. We're talking about the world's longest-heated crude oil pipeline project, and the involvement of some major Chinese players is raising more than a few eyebrows.

Why It Matters:
This isn't just about pipelines and profits – it's about people and our planet. From forced relocations to environmental devastation, the EACOP project is entangled in controversy. We're here to say enough is enough. We're demanding justice, accountability, and an end to projects that put our communities and our planet at risk.

We Call on You to Act!
We're calling on you to stand with us during the BRICS Summit. Join us at Innesfree Park, Sandton from 8:30 a.m. as we fight against Chinese oil exploration in Africa and rally for a sustainable, just, and prosperous future for all. Let's show up in numbers and raise our voices against the forces of destruction. Ready to Make Some Noise?
If you cannot join us in person, be sure to join us in solidarity with projected affected communities and participate in the digital action under the hashtags #StopEACOP #BRICSProtest and #EndFossilFuelFinance! Everything about that here ⬅️. See you at the frontlines ✊
In solidarity,
Zaki Mamdoo
