The European Union is drafting a regulation for the classification of sustainable finance products, the so-called Taxonomy. This sounds boring and bureaucratic, but it is actually one of the most significant projects of recent years and an important building block of the Green New Deal.
Accordingly, the natural gas and nuclear lobbies, as well as various European countries, are trying hard to have their dirty technologies classified as sustainable. Against these forces, it is important to create public pressure to counter the possible inclusion of both fossil gas and nuclear power in the taxonomy !
As a first step, we organise two webinars on the current state of the EU-Taxonomy and the role of the climate justice movement in this context: EU Taxonomy – Green Gas and Nuclear are dirty lies!
The webinars will be held one time in German and one time in English:
German: Monday, May 24, 7 pm CEST (Julian Bothe / . ausgestrahlt)
English: Monday, May 31, 7 pm CEST (Julian Bothe /. ausgestrahlt and Frida Kieninger / Food and Water Action Europe)

We are looking forward to meet you and to kick the gas and nuclear lobby in the ass!
In the fight for climate justice, nuclear power is not a solution! 90 climate justice groups from 15 countries signed the European statement against nuclear power and for climate justice. This is a strong sign of the mobilisation
of the European climate justice movement against nuclear power.
On this sad day of commemoration of the Fukushima disaster, we stand united against nuclear power: Don’t nuke the climate!

On the deadline March 1, 83 groups from climate justice movement in 15 countries have signed the Antinuclear statement. This is a great success and a strong sign against nuclear power.
The process for the statement started in 2020 at a meeting of the Climate Justice Action (CJA), a network of international grassroots mouvements fighting for global climate justice. The participants shared the analysis that the nuclear lobby tried to push for a renaissance of nuclear power as a solution for the climate crisis. The climate justice movement needed to confront this attempt with a strong united action. The statement is our first step against nuclear power.
The statement gets presented to the wider public on March 11, the 10th anniversary of the Fukushima catastrophe. Please share it in your networks and your (social) media.
The process of the statement is still ongoing. If your group wants to sign, write an email with the name of the group and the country to firstname.lastname@example.org
