My name is Livia, and I’m a Digital Campaigner with the 350 team here in Brazil.

The worst oil spill in my country’s history is happening right now. 2000 kilometers of coastline are currently drenched in oil, creating a dire situation for countless coastal communities.

While all this is happening, the largest oil companies on earth are gathering in Brazil. The reason? There’s a massive, multibillion dollar auction of oil rights happening today. And we need your help to create an international uproar.

Some of the biggest companies set to appear at oil rights auctions in Brazil today and tomorrow are based in Europe: Shell, Equinor and Wintershall DEA. Let them know that participating in this auction is unacceptable, by joining the twitter storm happening now to shame these companies.

Tweet now

Brazilian climate justice activists have put up fierce resistance to fossil fuel expansion for years. We’ve stopped oil auctions like this one in the past, and also made monumental steps this year by getting Brazil’s biggest states to ban fracking. Fossil fuel companies are already nervous about this auction — BP (UK) and Total (France) have pulled out of participating of their own volition.

By sending a message to Shell, Equinor and Wintershall DEA, you’ll send a clear signal to these oil giants that their actions overseas will have consequences at home. Whether they heed your words or not, your tweet is still meaningful for us over here in Brazil. We’re up against some of the most dangerous conditions for climate activists anywhere on earth, and it means a lot to know that we have your support.

Take a moment to stand in solidarity with our struggle in Brazil by demanding Shell, Equinor and Wintershall DEA quit tomorrow’s oil rights auction.

In solidarity,

Livia - for the team
