This was the slogan for the Days of Action of Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The network was quite busy last weekend: about local 130 groups took action and rumour has it that it was great! Here are a couple of stories from a very inspiring day.

To mark Friends of the Earth International Days of Action to mobilise against dirty energy and for climate justice last weekend, Young Friends of the Earth Ireland hosted a screening of multi-award winning film Gasland on Friday 13th October. Gasland explores the impact of natural gas drilling, or fracking, on the environment and communities in North America, highlighting the link between fossil fuel exploration and climate justice.

October 14 was a creative day for Amigos de la Tierra/ Friends of the Earth Spain. For the Days of Action, the local groups decided to paint murals collectively. And because it is nicer to paint in music, many of these actions were accompanied by live concerts and other activities to denounce the lack of climate action coming from the government as well as their connivance with the fossil fuel industry.
