Stop Barclays Funding Fossil Fuels

Stop Barclays Funding Fossil Fuels

We want Barclays to divest from the North Dakota Access Pipeline, Fracking in the UK & fossil fuel extraction across the globe.

By signing this petition I also personally pledge to not bank with Barclays until they stop funding climate chaos.

Why is this important?

If we’re serious about preventing catastrophic warming we can’t dig any new coal mines, drill any new fields or build any more pipelines. Not a single one. We can't stand by and watch as Sioux Native Americans stopping a pipeline are pepper sprayed, Tasered, attacked with dogs and arrested by police in tanks. We can't wait for the Tories to frack under our homes and National Parks.

Despite ongoing resistance from Sioux Native Americans and allies, militarized police continue to protect companies laying the North Dakota Access Pipeline.

Despite thousands of objections and sustained local and national pressure, Third Energy have just been given the green light to frack in Ryedale, North Yorkshire.

These projects are front lines of the battle to keep fossil fuels in the ground.
Barclays funds both these projects and have £15,653 million of assets in oil, gas and coal extraction globally. We can't let these projects go ahead.
