Mobilize for Climate Justice
Friends of the Earth International Week of Action to fight for Climate Justice!
From 6 -13 October 2018 Friends of the Earth International groups across six continents are mobilizing to highlight the climate emergency, fight dirty energy and false solutions and to call for a people-led transformation of our energy system. These actions are part of the Reclaim Power Campaign 2018.
Our actions coincide with the launch of the IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways. We only have a few years left to prevent runaway climate change. We must act together to fight this climate emergency. People Power will enable us to demand much-needed system change.
We are not fighting alone.
Every local struggle against dirty energy is connected.
Friends of the Earth groups are taking action across the world.
Together we can defeat the dirty energy system that fuels climate change and devastates local communities and the environment.
Join us on 6-13 October 2018.
Together we can prevent false solutions that only worsen impacts on people. Together we can fight for justice for affected communities. Together we can usher in a people-centred clean energy revolution.

They also paid homage to environmental defenders who pay for the struggle daily with their lives.
