Stand with us against the health, social and environmental impact of Exxon and Shell at Mossmorran!
We will meet at 12pm at the gates of Mossmorran. Bring banners and placards, wear a mask!
Mossmorran is the collective name for the natural gas plant operated by Shell, and the Ethylene plant operated by Exxon. Together, it is the third worst polluter in Scotland, and has caused noise, light and air pollution for the local community.
Longterm health impacts for the local community include breathing problems, headaches and migraines, eye and throat irritation, sleep disturbance and vibrations at home.
Let’s protect communities from Exxon and Shell!

WHY?

The Mossmorran petrochemical refinery is Scotland’s third largest polluter. Polls show that two thirds of Scots want to wind down oil and gas extraction and invest in green industries, but Shell and Exxonmobil continue to fund this dirty infrastructure with the government doing little to stop them. As Scotland prepares to host the COP26 climate conference, we are mobilising to ramp up the pressure and ensure Scotland delivers on the promise of a Just Transition.

We act in solidarity with Fife residents living at the sharp edge of fossil fuel pollution, communities on the frontline of the climate crisis, and with other mass actions against fossil gas infrastructure this summer by groups such as Ende Gelände and Shale Must Fall. Now is the time to call out climate hypocrisy and make our voices heard. Join us!
