Energy is vital to realizing people’s rights yet the world’s dominant energy systems completely fail more than two billion people and drive global warming. Reclaim Power is an initiative aimed at accelerating the transformation of these energy systems.
Reclaim Power has unified the global push for a just energy transformation since 2013, with 1000s of actions in over 75 countries.
We will continue this push in October 2017 with a wave of people-power that will travel across every corner of planet earth to demand the transformation of our failed energy systems, and to demonstrate we are building the systems we need today.
Our actions will show that communities everywhere on this planet are:
· Resisting dirty and harmful energy projects;
· Exposing and undermining the vested corporate interests that profit from this failed system;
· Divesting from dirty energy and redirecting public funding and control to ensure there is a just transition to 100% clean, renewable, and pro-poor energy systems;
· Building a new energy-democracy from the ground up, where people are guaranteed access to the energy they need without putting the planet in peril.
