We will not be bystanders

The conflict in Ukraine and the latest warnings in the IPCC report only further confirm that we need to get off fossil fuels NOW. We know what is happening, we know what needs to be done and we know those in power are exploiting this moment to double down on the use of fossil fuels, preventing the action we badly need.

Our immediate demand: stop all new fossil fuel investments immediately. It’s time to step up. We will not be bystanders. We refuse to bequeath a dying planet to future generations.
