January 28: Stop fossil subsidies, joining and supporting the action organized by Extinction Rebellion

The government spends billions every year in fossil subsidies. For more than 2 years, Extinction Rebellion has been campaigning for taxpayer money to stop supporting the fossil industry. In the last months, this campaign culminated in repeated blockades of the A12, between the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate and the Dutch Parliament. We supported their last action from the sidelines to highlight that even if their tactics are controversial, Extinction Rebellion’s demands are more aligned with the science than the actions of the Dutch government. 

The next action is planned for Saturday 28th January. We are planning to join again, this time both next to and inside the blockade. If you would like to join, either to do outreach and support the action next to the blockade, or to join the blockade itself, come to our next action training or send us a mail.
