On July 17th-21st, 2019, we will be in Bajouca, Leiria for a mass action at the terrain where Australis Oil & Gas plans a fossil gas drill. With this action, we will say no to exploration and production of gas and we will raise our voices for a fossil-free planet. The climate crisis requires that we do everything within our reach to call attention to the causes of the problem and stop all fossil fuel projects.
Our action is publicly announced and everyone, with or without experience, are welcome to participate. We will occupy the terrain peacefully and festively, and show the alternatives for a sustainable world.
The course of action will be decided together with the delegation plenaries and the action coordination team.
We will act calmly and kindly. We will not anyone put in risk. We will use our bodies to occupy the terrain. Our objective is not to destroy or damage any person or any objects. We will flow through or around security or police lines. Our action will transmit an image of diversity, creativity and openness.
Our action is not directed to workers or the police. The security of the activists, workers and all those involved is our top priority.
We come from various social and political backgrounds. We take joint responsibility for the success of the action. We will create a situation that is transparent for all participants and in which we respect each other and support each other. We will therefore prepare ourselves with action trainings taking place beforehand.
We show our solidarity to all the peoples that fight and have fought against fossil fuel projects and all those who face the dire impacts of the climate crisis. Our struggle is planetary.
