Umlando wokumbiwa kukawoyela e-Afrika ungowokuhaha, ukubamba iqhaza, ukucekelwa phansi kwezindawo zokuziphilisa nezindawo zemvelo, kanye nokuphulwa kwamalungelo abantu. Lokhu kuboniswa kahle nguhulumeni wezempi waseNigeria lapho eqondise khona abantu base-Ogoni, ababebhikishela ukucekelwa phansi kwemvelo okubangelwa ukungcoliswa kukawoyela kweShell Petroleum Company.
Kuyadingeka ukuthi abantu baseNingizimu Afrika bathathe isinyathelo ngokushesha, njengoba kukhona ithuba elincane lokuvimbela ukuqhuma kokusetshenziswa kukaphethiloli olwandle lwethu. Ngokunweba ukulwela kwethu ubulungiswa besimo sezulu ekuphikisaneni nokuxhashazwa kukawoyela negesi ekujuleni kolwandle, sizosebenzela izwe, kanye nezwekazi lase-Afrika wonkana, kuyilapho sivuma ukulwa ngesibindi kwabantu base-Ogoni futhi sakhela phezu kwefa lika-Ken Saro-Wiwa.
Kungaphakathi kwalo mongo lapho iphrojekthi ihlose ukunika amandla imiphakathi yendawo encike olwandle, ukuqinisekisa ukuthi izimpilo zabadobi, kanye namathuluzi abo nolwazi kuyagcinwa, futhi imiphakathi iyakwazi ukuxoxisana nabathatha izinqumo ukuze kuvikelwe izilwandle zethu kubo bonke, kuze kube phakade. .
This campaign will build on existing networks of small scale fishers and other coastal and ocean communities, as well as engaging with those civil society organizations working on climate change and the energy sector.
The Who Stole Our Oceans campaign is an environmental and social justice campaign launched by The Green Connection in 2020, in a bid to protect our oceans for future generations, with a particular emphasis on opposing offshore oil and gas exploration, is currently underway.
We have a long history of working with fishing communities to help them recognize and fight for their rights, we have worked with partner organizations on various projects, the Masifundise to ensure fisheries are ecologically sensitive in their activities, and WWF project for responsible fisheries.
We as The Green Connection, have been active over time in a number of ecojustice struggles. A crucial consideration in South Africa’s just energy transition must be to ascertain what benefits new renewable energy projects have to address the legacies of the injustice of the past. We have engaged with communities on the ground to see how they were experiencing the benefits of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement (REIPPP). Sadly, the story is not a happy one.
