Between the 2nd and the 16th of April, more than 120 people participated in the Caravan for Climate Justice! Along 400 km, the caravan passed through the localities in the central part of the Portugal most affected by desertification – from fires to drought and lack of water – connecting with those who live there.
Along the way, the practices and industries that accelerate the climate crisis, alongside the responsible companies that put profit above people were highlighted: Navigator, Celbi, Caima and Celtejo from the Altri Group, CIMPOR, “travessão do Pego”, as well as several dams, the EDP’s thermoelectric power plant, and the TrustEnergy’s Combined Cycle power plant in Pego.

There is a lot to do in this drought-stricken year, which threatens new waves of fires.
We return home more united, stronger and prepared to stop those responsible for the climate crisis and to build together a society that puts life at its centre.
More than 30 organizations and dozens of people organized the Climate Justice Caravan. Find out more about this great action at https://www.caravanaclima.pt/
19th of April | Introductory Meeting
We only have a few years left to stop the climate chaos. Yet, political, economic and social institutions continue to act as if there is no climate crisis. If we ever thought that governments and/or multinationals could solve this crisis, we now know that they have failed us. We are the ones we have been waiting for.
Join us! On Tuesday, the 19th of April, at 18:00, please show up at CIDAC (Tomás Ribeiro Street, 3-9, Picoas, Lisbon) and bring your anger.
