#AfrikaVuka: A call for climate justice and the end of fossil fuel use in Africa.
On May 24 and 25, we took actions in cities and towns across the continent for Africa Day to show the determination of the People of Africa to free themselves from foreign domination and exploitation. We demanded that our local leaders commit to building a fossil free Africa that puts people and justice before profits.
350Africa.org joined Earthlife Africa and Campaign for a Just Energy Future outside the Standard Bank AGM united in our call for Africa’s biggest lender to the oil and gas industry to do more in terms of tacking the climate crisis and as a meaningful start, report on how exposed the banks lending, financing, and investment activities to climate risks.
As 350Africa.org we decided to create a Climate Change election guide in an effort to get our partners on the ground more engaged but also to start the climate conversation before the elections and hear what people thought about it and if they would sway their votes based on political parties positions on some climate related themes.

The highly expected verdict in the court case challenging the construction of Lamu coal plant has been postponed to 24 June by the National Environment Tribunal (NET) in Nairobi. The judgement was supposed to close an appeal which commenced before the NET in October 2016, halting the development of the Lamu Coal Plant.
As we head to the polls here in South Africa, which party will work on equitably transforming us from the biggest carbon polluter on the continent to a climate action taking, renewable energy superpower? And if you’re a voter who wants to support a party that really cares about taking climate action, then where should you put your X on May 8th?
