We Must Resist: Dirty Energy in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique
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.

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!

FoE Togo: The impacts of oil and dirty energy
Shell is wrecking the climate. We are taking Shell to Court.

Across the world Shell’s climate wrecking activities are leaving a trail of devastation, from Nigeria to the Netherlands. We cannot save the climate if large corporations continue to pollute the planet. This is why Friends of the Earth Netherlands is taking Shell to court.
Stop ISDS - The French oil company Total is putting profits before people and nature in Uganda

This dirty oil industry would evict thousands from their lands and threaten people's livelihoods. Yet rather than protect Human Rights and the Environment, an investment treaty signed between the Netherlands and Uganda gives corporations like Total the ability to sue the country for any law that harms their expected profit.
It is time to stop corporate destruction and bad investment deals.
