Demand Climate Justice

Filipinos are enduring the worst impacts of climate change, caused by greedy corporations. It's time to hold them to account!


The Greenpeace activists have removed their human-alarm blockade at Shell’s Batangas refinery around 3:00 p.m. yesterday and the climbers have taken down their banner at the site, as the Climate Emergency Hour peaked. Greenpeace campaigner Khevin Yu said that “while we have debilitated their operations to an extent today [i], this is just the start. The growing voices of the youth and communities are showing that the fossil fuel companies are losing their social license to operate business-as-usual [ii]. We will be relentless in putting pressure on them until they heed our call for climate justice and rapidly transition to cleaner energy and immediately adopt meaningful solutions to this climate crisis. We do not want climate change to be our new normal. Enough is enough.”
