The delegates will participate in the March to End Fossil Fuels, rallies during the United Nation’s Climate Ambition Summit, and nonviolent direct actions focused on institutions that fund and insure fossil fuel projects.

Southwest Louisianans are resisting the onslaught of gas export terminals along their coast. During the LNG Summit of the Americas in Lake Charles, shrimpers and fishermen organized a flotilla of shrimp boats to hold signs saying,‘We Won’t Take the Bait, LNG Out of Our State’, outside of the conference.Gas export terminals are decimating Louisiana’s seafood industry by not only destroying once abundant fishing grounds, but also clogging channels with massive tankers that block fishermen’s and shrimpers’ access to the few fishing grounds they can access.
