MidCat / STEP resistance

This mega-pipeline was planned to connect the gas networks of Spain, France and Portugal, to allow even more gas to be pumped around Europe and increase dependency on fossil fuels.

It was met with sustained and strategic resistance from activists on either side of the border. We supported their great work by bringing the fight to an international stage, collaborating on challenging EU support for the project and raising awareness about the project during an action at COP24 in Poland.

Eventually activists were vindicated when the national regulators ruled that the project was completely unnecessary. The project was stalled indefinitely and lost its EU priority status.
