In a victory for the movement for a fossil free Europe, a climate-damaging gas pipeline project between France and Catalonia has today been blocked by French energy regulators.

Communities are already experiencing the impacts of man-made climate change, especially in the Global South, but also increasingly here in Europe. The overconsumption of resources is contributing to the crisis and increasing inequality within and between countries.
