On September 15-17, millions of people around the world protested against the use of fossil fuels. 600 thousand people around the world call for a fast and fair exit from fossil fuels: more than 700 actions in 65 countries were held. We joined the Global Fight to End Fossil Fuels to remind that fossil fuels sponsor the deaths of Ukrainians and will kill more people in the next decades through consequences of climate change.
After year and a half of a full-scale russian invasion of Ukraine the world keeps buying russian fossil fuels thus keeps financing both climate crisis and the war. We decided to join the Global Fight to End Fossil Fuels campaign to remind that fossil fuels sponsor the deaths our fellow Ukrainians and will kill even more people in the next decades with droughts, floods and extreme weather events caused by climate change.
Research shows that russia earned over 413 billion euro on fossil fuels exports. Those money fund the blood-spilling war in Ukraine. The whole world keeps paying for deaths and suffering of Ukrainians. We call to stop buying russian oil, gas, and coal that sponsor the murderers and to phase-out from all the fossil fuels eventually for the safety of us now and for generations to come.
We asked people from our Community to join the photo action and help us show the damage in other cities.
