May 27: A12 Blockade
Join us in demanding an end to fossil fuel subsidies! The Dutch government currently spends billions of taxpayer money every year on these subsidies, which act as a barrier to effective climate action. The latest IPCC report clearly states that this detrimental policy is hindering our ability to secure a livable planet for all.
Despite promising to stop this harmful policy at the Climate COP in Glasgow, the Dutch government has yet to fulfill its pledge. For over two years, Extinction Rebellion has been campaigning to end fossil fuel subsidies and has recently taken more direct action, including blockading the A12 between the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate and the Dutch Parliament.
We, Scientist Rebellion, supported Extinction Rebellion’s actions in January and March with 100 scientists. We believe that their demands are more aligned with the science than the actions of the Dutch government. Join us in supporting the call to stop subsidizing the fossil fuel industry and help secure a better future for all.
