Akbelen Nöbeti'nde bugün 3️⃣5️⃣0️⃣. gün
İkizköylüler yaşanabilir bir Muğla, sağlıklı bir yeryüzü için kömüre karşı 350 gündür nöbetteler 🏕️🐿️
📢 350. günde Akbelen Ormanı'nda mesaj ne#AkbelenOrmaniniVermeyecegizğ#IklimIçinSesVerVer udLm
Corporates like @MarshGlobal cannot continue burying their heads in the sand as they broker insurance deals for problematic projects like the East African Crude Oil Pipeline.
We are knocking on their doors today demanding that they #StopEACOP#MarshDropEACOP
The Supreme Court attacking indigenous sovereignty as climate change accelerates is doubly bleak, because returning the land to indigenous stewardship is one of the biggest ways we can prevent climate disaster
👀 Para conocer los daños provocados por la financiación a los combustibles fósiles, hay que escuchar de las personas más impactadas. Pues un webinário realizado hace dos semanas por@BankTrackk, con la participación de350.orgO, abrió espacio a esos relatos. 🧵twitter.com/BankTrack/stat…LPP
🇺🇬 Ugandan activis@eve_chantelel is protesting against th#EACOPOP pipeline wit@Riseupmovtvt.
She is pressuring banks in Uganda and globally to abandon new oil and gas exploration.
🗣️ "They invest in fossil fuels and try to show the public that they are doing something elseTq7
Fossil fuel companies use advertising and sponsorships to promote false solutions, greenwash their brand and gain political access to block urgent climate action. We need to #BanFossilAds now. Sign the European Citizens' Initiative to create a new law: banfossilfuelads.org
I really don't want to be the pushy kind but the fact that the #EACOP pipeline is passing through my village, the hell I will scream on top of my voice.
This is a personal fight and i owe it to my ancestors and the coming generations.
While climate disasters get worse, fossil fuel companies get richer & richer.
So why don’t we start naming these catastrophic events after the companies that are to blame?
Let's give them the credit they deserve for destroying our planet. Add your name:
🧵(1/2) Less than a week after overturning Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court sided with the fossil fuel industry to strip the@EPAA of its power to protect the environment, our communities, and our economy from a growing climate crisis.
Yesterday was important. Communities came together across the country to remember the #2021HeatDome and demand MPs end their climate delay on critical climate action. #cndpoli#EndClimateDelay
Highlights from yesterday:
PEOPLE PWR! ✊🔥 During ICBC’s annual shareholders meeting, 🌍 global actions surrounded ICBC demanding real climate leadership #StopEACOPOP, scrap all fossil fuel projects, & start funding a renewable energy future for all. No time to wast#GoCleanICBCBCgocleanicbc.orgf7k

Good morning! ☀️
Addressing the climate crisis is one of the best possible ways we can address economic inequality and the current affordability crisis: free mass transit, affordable zero-carbon public housing, the creation of good low-carbon jobs.
This is colonial exploitation, my country is not responsible for climate change but we are suffering the most impacts of climate change ! #Eacop will emits 6 times the total ugandas emission per year. We shouldn't be suffering from the north colonial policies, enough is enough!
🇯🇵 Japanese corporations have faced a record number of shareholders backing proposals calling for greater action and transparency on meeting net-zero carbon emissions targeworld.350.org/ja/press-relea…ZOGw3
Today, 27% of shareholders of #SMBC Group called on the bank’s Board of Directors to strengthen its climate actions!
Outside its AGM, activists were calling on the bank to stop financing EACOP and other fossil fuel projects that threaten people's lives and the planet. #StopEACOP
We may not prevent another extreme heat event, but we can stop them from getting worse and can ensure that everyone has the support they need to weather the climate storms that are coming.

Today, activists called on shareholders of #SMBC (@smbc_midosuke ) to vote for NGO and citizen‘s proposal to align the bank's business strategy with the Paris Climate Agreement. SMBC Group, the Time to Act is Now!
Our ability, freedom, & safety to protest looks different around the 🌏 but when we stand together against our shared enemies even in small ways, the future we’re fighting for grows that much closer. With that in mind, here are some choice reads to wind down your Pride month:
Pride this year comes in the wake of new (or renewed) attacks on queer rights, reproductive freedoms, and on the safety of people working for climate action around the world. But every time our movements recognize ourselves in each other, we get stronger.
Today we remember that Pride is a protest 🏳️🌈✊ — and that over & over, we see the people who want to erase LGBTQA+ rights hard at work halting climate action & rolling back the rights of other marginalized groups in order to hang onto power.
🔥This is what activism looks like! 🔥 Just no@eve_chantelel an@Luisamneubauerer met with the CEO of Deutsche Bank to ask why the bank continues to give billions of dollars to oil giants like TotalEnergies. So powerful to have th@Riseupmovtvt in Germany to speak truth to powerID
📢 LIVE from@DeutscheBankk’s headquarters in Frankfurt, activists from Germany and Uganda speak at a press conference marking the end of the#G7summitt, after meeting with CEO Christian Sewing to demand the bank stops funding fossil fuels. Tune in!youtu.be/xwQQmZilKm46
⚠️@G7 ends today, but we’re not done fighting for true #ClimateJustice (which means true #DebtJustice). G7 countries must pay their fair share for climate action in the Global South — which does NOT mean loaning money for fossil fuel development.
Why have 20+ finance institutions backed out of EACOP? As Omar Elmawi from @stopEACOP puts it, "they are not doing it because they like us, they are doing this because they see sense in the arguments we are making."
Fossil fuels are not the answer.❌⚠️
Increasing ⬆️ the supply of non-Russian hydrocarbons to the carbon-addicted developed world would only deliver returns for fossil fuel industries in rich countries, while creating (more) unsustainable dependencies in developing ones. In other words, STOP your wild gas rush. 🛑
Speaking of things we're skeptical about, "This isn't aid or charity," Mr Biden said of the new scheme. Apparently, "It's an investment that will deliver returns for everyone." That remains to be seen. Whatever it is, it should not incur new debt on the recipients. 🏦 ❌
Firstly, words are nice but many G7 countries failed to meet a similar pledge quite recently, so a healthy dose of skepticism about this promise is in order. Related q: how much of this pledge is really new & how much is part of the already-pledged $100bn for #climatefinance? 🤔
Last year, #G7 promised the world a new non-debt-inducing initiative to rival China’s BRI. G7 leaders have now announced they plan to raise $600bn over 5 years to fund the launch of infrastructure projects in middle & low-income countries. Let's unpack that just a bit..... 🧵
