Climate protesters demonstrate against East African pipeline project

Climate protesters in London on Wednesday demonstrated outside the UK headquarters of French energy giant TotalEnergies against a controversial oil project in Uganda and Tanzania. The planned East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) will see Ugandan oilfields developed and crude piped to the Tanzanian port of Tanga on the Indian Ocean. The project has been strongly criticised by rights activists and environmental groups and has also faced criticism in the European Parliament. https://www.africanews.com/2023/10/19/climate-protesters-demonstrate-against-east-african-pipeline-project/

        Hi, Rotich Kim. Thanks for posting a climate review on our platform. However, this review should not be directed to UK GOVERNMENT, but to a company or an organization that needs to be aware of this, like TotalEnergies. The idea behind our climate reviews is to make companies and organizations aware that they could (and should) do better. If enough people agree to your review, we will contact the company and ask them to join the climate dialogue. Read more here: https://www.wedonthavetime.org/our-community#guide

              Great for climate action actors to call out on all climate change deniers and polluters. Its time for the planet to explore to more sustainable climate solutions.

                Great commitments from these demonstrators,citizens from Tanzania and Uganda should as well decline such projects in their motherland.

                  It's crucial for stakeholders to consider the environmental impact and explore alternative solutions that align with both economic progress and ecological preservation.

                    Climate protesters in London staged a demonstration outside the UK headquarters of TotalEnergies, opposing the controversial East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) project in Uganda and Tanzania. The EACOP involves developing Ugandan oilfields and transporting crude to the Tanzanian port of Tanga, raising concerns among rights activists and environmental groups. The protest reflects growing international scrutiny and opposition to projects with perceived environmental and social impacts, echoing criticisms also voiced in the European Parliament. The incident highlights the global significance of climate activism and the ongoing debate over the environmental implications of large-scale energy projects.
