Nagsagawa ng kilos-protesta ang Asian Peoples’ Movement on Debt and Development sa harap ng Japanese Embassy sa Manila.

Ito ay para tutulan ang paggamit ng Japanese energy’s sector sa fossil fuel at hydrogen para sa power generation.

Ayon kay Lidy Nacpil, coordinator ng APMDD, dapat nang itigil ng Japan ang pagpopondo sa fossil fuel.

“This summit showcases Japan’s interest in false solutions, such as carbon capture, ammonia co-firing or hydrogen plants, and how to keep LNG attractive for investors in spite of its dirty reputation. We are registering our fierce opposition to the agenda being promoted by this Summit. We call on the Summit participants to stop supporting fossil fuels and instead contribute to the rapid, equitable and just transition to renewable and democratic energy systems in Asia,” pahayag ni Nacpil.

Nagsagawa rin ang grupo ng kaparehong kilos proteesta sa Bangladdesh at Indonesia.

“The main cause of the climate crisis is the burning of fossil fuels. We need to speed up the direct, just and equitable transition to clean, renewable energy technologies, not extend the life of the fossil fuel industry with hydrogen fuels, carbon capture and fossil gas. These technologies lead to the production of more fossil fuels,” pahayag ni Nacpil.

Sinabi naman ni Atty. Aaron Pedrosa, Secretary General ngSanlakas at Co Chair ng Energy Working Group of the Philippine Movement for Climate Justice (PMCJ) na mapanganig ang ginagawa ng Japan.

“Investments in false solutions is not the fix that we need to enable the clean energy transition. We need to increase capital spending on clean energy instead,” pahayag ni Pedrosa.
