In their third protest action this week, climate activists painted the façade of the Lisbon head office of National Energy Networks Portugal (REN) red. They accuse the company of declaring a “war on society and the environment”.
Climaximo, the collective to which these activists belong, posted a video in their social media networks showing how they painted the facade of this company that manages the electricity and gas transport network for the country with red paint.
One of the protesters in the video said: “With the Port of Sines and its Gas Pipelines, and the Expansion of the Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal, this Company is choosing to expand the fossil-gas industry instead of ensuring the transformation of our electric network.”
The Climaximo protest group has carried out three actions in Lisbon over the past three days.
On Tuesday morning, several youths blocked the Second Circular in Lisbon, which is one of the most busy roads and connects east to west. They did this during the rush hour in order to protest the climate change crisis.
They carried out another similar act the next day, blocking Sao Bento Street very near where Parliament is situated, in order to make an appeal to lawmakers.
We stopped all normal activities in the past two days to inform the whole society of the need to end this genocide. In their video, they said that “today we’re here to demonstrate to one company why we must stop.”
The protests for climate justice have increased in Portugal. Last week, other activists shouted “this is our last winter using gas” and hurled green paint towards the Minister of Environment, Duarte cordeiro, at a CNN public event.
Climaximo, a day later, painted the Lisbon International Fair’s (FIL), entrance red at the World Aviation Festival. He believed that the World Aviation Festival brought together the “biggest criminals” of this century.
