A campaign against oil drilling and fracking

Climate change, global warming and exploitation of gas and oil are issues that concern the whole globe. We touch these problems every day and they really affect our lives.

Campanha Linha Vermelha” is a national awareness campaign with the final aim of stopping oil drilling and fracking in Portugal. This movement is present all over the world. Specifically, in Portugal there are still five active drilling and fracking contracts.

The main Linha Vermelha’s commitment is to mobilize and inform people. Hence its goal, so far, is to mobilize people to knit 52 km of red line. Families, elderlies, artists, hipsters, DIY people and children work all together to create this red line, to say NO! to oil drilling and fracking.

Its vision is a country which keep its fossil fuels in the ground, and at the same time investing in renewable energies.

On the 20th of March 2018, at 9pm the event of “Campanha Linha Vermelha” will take pace. Come to Lisboa Vadia, Rua de São Mamede 33, 1100 Lisboa.
