Join Extraction Resistance

At LINGO, we encourage everyone to resist fossil fuel extraction and infrastructure everywhere.

AusgeCO2hlt Baggerblockade #Klimacamp2014
Activists blocking a huge coal mining device in Germany, July 2014.

The battle starts in our imagination. With LINGO Murals you can plant the idea in our minds and hearts that fossil fuels need to stay underground for a safe future.

The next chance for intervention is at exploration. LINGO calls for a Global Moratorium on Exploration.
