Blik op het Klimaat – Projection Action
April 24, 2020 @ 21:30 - 22:30
In these times of crisis and physical distancing, we need to stand together. We need to find creative ways to fight for what we believe in. We need to remind our governments that the measures that are taken now will have long term consequences, both for us and for our future generations. The corona crisis calls for systemic changes, and it is our responsibility to ensure that these changes hold climate justice as a priority.
Climate change is the most urgent threat to our civilization. Predictions worsen everyday, and our chances to revert this crisis are quickly fading away. Communities all over the world have already been impacted by storms, drought, heatwaves, … thousands of people have already lost their homes, and billions are expected to be displaced due to climate catastrophes. Yet none of our actions reflect the urgency of the situation.
The fossil fuel industry is the main cause of global warming. Not only do they destroy entire ecosystems by drilling oil, but big companies like Shell and Exxonmobil have been actively compromising efforts against climate change. They have known about the disastrous effect of their extraction methods for years, yet they keep funding climate-denying groups and spend millions on lobbying. The only way to put an end to this massive industry is by actively refusing to engage with it, and each local government has the power to do that.
The 24th of April is a global day for climate actions. In these exceptional circumstances, we want make a concrete action: a projection of hundreds of pictures us holding protest boards on the building of the municipality! As citizens of Maastricht and citizens of the world, we will in this way ask our local government to take concrete actions against the fossil fuel industry.Join us on the 24th by SENDING US YOUR PICTURE in either one of these manners:
