The activists displayed a banner in Ban Jelačić Square saying “Fossil fuels kill people and the climate”, and warned about the link between those fuels and the financing of the war in Ukraine as well as about the damage oil, coal and fossil gas cause to the climate.

The ECI petition obliges the European Commission to consider it if the required number of signatures is collected.

Activists believe the long-term solution to both the war and climate crises is a resolute “no” to all fossil fuels, wherever they come from, and turning to renewables for which, they say, Croatia has huge potential, notably in sun energy.

In order to achieve real energy independence, the government must give up fossil fuels, exploit the sun and start to invest in renewables, Petra Andrić of Greenpeace’s Croatian office said.
