#Gothenburg, #Sweden, September 6-8th, 2019: Mass disobedient climate action

September 6-8th 2019 the largest disobedient action so far in the Swedish climate movement will take place. Folk mot fossilgas is a unique collaboration between action groups around the country. Will we see you in Gothenburg Sept 6-8th 2019?

Originally published by Folk Mot Fossilgas.

This is a call for the largest disobedient climate action yet in Sweden.

Join us for a disobedient mass action on September 6-8th 2019!
It’s time to stop the European fossil gas expansion.

We are a network of activists with different backgrounds, from different movements, coming together to keep fossil fuels in the ground.
We are part of the bigger climate justice movement.
We are people against fossil gas.
We are Folk mot fossilgas.

And we welcome you to join us.

Why?

In Scandinavia’s largest port (Port of Gothenburg), the company Swedegas is building an import terminal for fossil gas (LNG Göteborg). They want to connect the terminal to the Swedish gas grid, which would create a lock-in for fossil fuels dependency for the coming 40 years. A terrible idea!

The Swedish government is expected to make a decision this fall – to allow or to stop these fossil gas imports. We can’t rely on them to make the right decision. We need to claim the power of the people.

What?

Folk mot fossilgas is a mass direct action. We will be many and we will be unstoppable. 
Folk mot fossilgas is disobedient. We will not hesitate to break the law to protect the environment and our future. 
Folk mot fossilgas is non-violent. We will not put anybody in danger or allow ourselves to be provoked by the police. The safety of all people in and around the action is of highest priority.

An action consensus is under development, and in June there will be an open meeting in Gothenburg to discuss it. It will then be translated to English and other languages.

Where?

Gothenburg, Sweden.

When?

September 6-8th, 2019.

Who?

We call on anyone who wants to act for climate justice, and who agrees with the action consensus, to join us!
We encourage people to come from other countries to join as well.
