In the comment, say how angry you are that they are still considering funding Total’s East African Crude Oil Pipeline and tell them to stop. Ask why they are still involved in EACOP despite the human rights violations this project has been notorious for. And ask why they are still financing fossil fuel projects when we’re in a climate crisis.

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.
