People power setting Africa free from coal dependence 

Stay Informed!

#DeCOALonise

Similar to the “Scramble for Africa” the push for the development of coal and fossil fuels in Africa is a new wave of corporate colonisation that profits corporations and the wealthy elite. Any new coal power plant will come at great cost: local environmental destruction, impact on the health of local peoples, and an intensification of the pace and impacts of climate change.

It’s time to come together and #deCOALonise Africa!
