If built, the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) would have disastrous consequences for local communities and wildlife in Uganda and Tanzania – and for the entire planet.
Tens of banks have ruled out financing EACOP, but Africa’s biggest bank – Standard Bank – is still backing it. Their money is critical in getting this pipeline up and running.
Earlier this year, they lost a major business relationship because they wouldn’t drop EACOP – the huge US PR firm, Edelman.
This shows that all the noise we’ve been making about the horrors of this pipeline is working. We’re making EACOP so toxic that its backers are losing business partners.
Help us put public pressure on Standard Bank, and join our social media storm calling on them to drop it.

People around the world are uniting in resistance to Total’s climate-wrecking East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP).
New backers are ready to support this devastating pipeline, despite opposition from local communities in Uganda and Tanzania. If we can show the global scale of resistance and solidarity with the fight against EACOP – we have a chance to stop it.
Sign-up to take one quick online action a day for a week to #StopEACOP. Join the week of action now.
We’re throwing the weight of our global climate movement behind the fight to stop EACOP for a good reason.
If built, EACOP will be the longest heated crude oil pipeline in the world. It will transport hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil a day from Uganda to the port of Tanga in Tanzania.
Total’s pipeline is a symbol of everything that is wrong with our broken energy system. It is displacing communities, threatening food and water supplies, and endangering wildlife. It will also pump millions of tons of CO2 pollution into our air, and put all our futures at risk.
In just a couple of weeks, the annual UN climate conference (COP27) will open in Egypt. World leaders and media will turn their attention to the climate crisis, after a year of devastating floods, droughts, and heatwaves.
It’s our chance to uplift the tireless local resistance to EACOP in Uganda and Tanzania. And a key moment to throw a global spotlight on EACOP and call on banks and insurers to pull their support.
When you sign up, for seven days (starting on Monday, 24 October) you’ll join thousands of others on a round-the-world tour of anti-EACOP resistance.
We’ll send you one action to take per day. You’ll have the option to choose to get your daily prompt via email, or on Whatsapp or Signal straight to your phone.
The international EACOP resistance is growing in power. Loudly, we’re calling for a clean, fair, safe, and 100% renewable future for all.
Help build this massive global movement against one of the world’s worst fossil fuel projects.
