People power setting Africa free from coal dependence 

Stay Informed!


On the 25th of May, we’re taking action across Africa to demand that African governments break ties with the fossil fuel industry. We’ll show our politicians that a continental transition away from fossil fuels and toward a new kind of just economy — centered on 100% renewable energy — is not only possible but within our grasp.

It’s Time for Action – Let’s Break Free from Fossil Fuels

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!
