We need to collapse Total to avoid total collapse
On the 16th to 18th of November, 2021, we, the Glasgow Agreement, will take on multinational Total all over the world in decentralized direct actions.
Call to Action
For more than half a century, governments, investors and executives of corporations like Total have been fully aware of the consequences of their decisions on widespread biodiversity loss and the destruction of all forms of life. 50 years of scientific reports and citizen mobilization; 50 years of broken promises; disinformation, greenwashing, lobbying. Among others, Total is one of the key actors in this destruction. Whilst humanity is reaching the limits of its own planet, they refuse to change.
It’s time for people to take matters into their own hands the need to collectively cut greenhouse gas emissions and keep fossil fuels in the ground.
We will not stand by and watch history, we will create our history.
180 organisations from 54 countries have signed the Glasgow Agreement. Now, we call on everyone for a global day of decentralized direct action and acts of non-cooperation to stop one of the most powerful and ecocidal actors on the Planet.
We need to collapse Total to avoid total collapse.
We call on all organisations from the climate justice movement and beyond to collectively disrupt Total’s operations* on the 16th to 18th of November, using a diverse array of tactics for powerful, creative and compassionate actions.
* If Total does not operate in your territory you can still join the call by conducting direct action against another major company/infrastructure present in your territory.
Join the next Ask Us Anything calls if you would like to know how your group can join this action! The next sessions will take place on Monday, September 20th, one at 08h00 UTC, and the second at 16h00 UTC. Both of the calls will be hosted in English, French and Spanish. (You can convert UTC to your time zone here)

Systemic Change and Glasgow Agreement
The Glasgow Agreement aims to reclaim the initiative from governments and international institutions by creating an alternative tool for action (emmissions inventory and climate agenda) and a space for strategy and coordination for the climate justice movement. We are more than 170 organisations, united by the understanding that systemic change is needed as well as a common definition of climate justice.
We understand that civil society must have its own plan of action, and no longer wait for governments and international institutions to act. We aim to use a vast array of strategies and tactics, including civil disobedience, to achieve the necessary emissions cuts to prevent a 1.5ºC temperature rise by 2100. This will be the first of many diverse actions.
You can sign and join the Glasgow Agreement here.
