Fossil fuel pollution and climate disasters are already disrupting millions of lives. From fires, to floods, to hurricanes like Harvey and Ida, to the brutal winter storm we experienced in Texas, we are living in the midst of a climate emergency. We deserve a world beyond fossil fuels: a world in which workers’ rights, community health, and our shared climate come before corporate profits. Fossil fuel pollution and climate disasters are already disrupting millions of lives worldwide. From fires, to floods, to hurricanes like Harvey and Ida, to the brutal winter storm we experienced last February in Texas, we are living in the midst of a climate emergency. We deserve a world beyond fossil fuels: a world where we can breathe clean air and drink clean water, where workers’ rights, community health, and our shared climate come before corporate profits. That’s why we are uniting to ensure all sectors — government, finance, and the Global Petrochemical Congress divest from extractive industry and invest in restorative and sustainable community-based solutions.
Native and Black frontline leaders and their collaborators ask you to attend and join in the demand to the World Petrochemical “Congress” to Stop Destroying Native Lands, Polluting Communities, and Fueling Climate Change.
- Stop Fossil Fuels Projects,
- Immediately Divest from Extractive Industries
- Invest in Restorative and Sustainable Frontline Solutions
- Stop Destruction of Native Lands
- Pay Reparations to the Global South and for a Just Recovery from Native Genocide and from Slavery
- Respect Voting Rights and the Will of the People.
