Climate protesters in London on Wednesday demonstrated outside the UK headquarters of French energy giant TotalEnergies against a controversial oil project in Uganda and Tanzania.
The planned East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) will see Ugandan oilfields developed and crude piped to the Tanzanian port of Tanga on the Indian Ocean.
The project has been strongly criticised by rights activists and environmental groups and has also faced criticism in the European Parliament.
In September, four environmental groups took legal action against TotalEnergies on claims of “climaticide”, saying that the company “must no longer continue to knowingly, freely and with impunity fuel climate change”.
