BREAKING: Greenpeace USA activists bear witness to tanker carrying Russian oil in New York waters!

Greenpeace USA activist protested the New York City arrival of a 50,000-ton oil tanker carrying Russian fossil fuel productsForward and share this message: Oil fuels war, let’s break free from fossil fuels!

Greenpeace USA activists and I are on the water in New York City bearing witness to a tanker carrying Russian oil. It’s arriving just before the end of the 45 day grace period set by President Biden. We have a clear message — oil fuels war, and we are done with both. We’re sending a message to Russia, to the oil companies making obscene profits off conflicts, and directly to President Biden that NOW is the time to move past fossil fuels.

You’ve already sent a message to President Biden, now will you help get the word out?

Oil fuels war. Across the world, people like you and I have been shocked and saddened by the incredible violence inflicted on the Ukrainian people by Vladimir Putin’s oil-funded regime. This is truly atrocious, truly heartbreaking. As the violence unfolds, our movement is unified in saying no more — no more war, no more bloodshed, no more blank checks written to dictators and militaries to fund their war machines. As long as we continue to pour petrodollars into the pockets of evil men, we will not see an end to their violence.

Oil fuels war. It’s time for it to STOP. We must break the cycle.

People around the world are taking action for a peaceful and green future. And you can too.

Rainbow Warrior Hoists a Large Banner With a Peace Sign Saying NO WAR

The Rainbow Warrior protested war earlier this month in the Ionian Sea.

In this moment, we must face the horror of war with the courage to change everything. We must stand up to the oil industry and say no more, never again. In country after country, our movement is telling the world that this must be the LAST war ever fought over or funded by fossil fuels.

No dictator can monopolize the sun. No autocrat can stop the wind. If you were forwded this email please tell President Biden that now is the time that he must lead the U.S. in a new direction, off of fossil fuels and into a more just and peaceful world. The world is watching, and we MUST meet this moment.

This is not a moment to be silent. This is a moment to demand better. To be better. To choose, for once, the right direction out of this mess. That’s why we are joining activists across the globe to speak out, we will not let our leaders forget!
