Internationalist solidarity with Mozambican people facing dirty energy projects

The gas industry is ravaging Cabo Delgado in northern Mozambique, fuelling human rights abuses, poverty, corruption, violence and social injustice. We stand in solidarity with communities in Cabo Delgado who have been displaced by dirty energy projects and conflicts.

We denounce the complicity between the funders of fossil fuel projects and the government of Mozambique. We call on the Mozambican, UK and French governments to stop funding gas exploitation in the country, and demand a strong and effective international legally binding instrument to hold corporations accountable for human rights abuses.

Watch / listen

In Cabo Delgado, Mozambique, thousands of people are being forced from their land to make way for gas exploration by fossil fuel giants Shell, Eni, Exxonmobil, Anadarko, Total and others. Not only do gas, oil and coal contribute to climate change, they bring poverty, conflict, debt and pollution, especially in Africa. We must resist, confront, educate, and take real legal actions to keep fossil fuels in the ground and move to people-led renewable energy. Together, we can!
