A third of Pakistan is underwater. Blistering heat has gripped the UK, Europe and the Horn of Africa – but it’s those least responsible for the climate crisis who are fighting for their lives and livelihoods.

Monsoon rains have caused devastating floods in Pakistan, leaving millions homeless, destroying buildings, bridges and roads and leaving vast swathes of the country under water.

More than 33 million people have been impacted by the catastrophic flooding in Pakistan, with over a thousand fatalities. Meanwhile, countries in the Horn of Africa are experiencing their worst drought in 40 years with more than 18 million people facing severe hunger.

Here at home, we are facing our own battles. The cost of living crisis, fueled by soaring energy bills, will plunge millions into fuel poverty this winter.

This is what fossil fuel corporations have unleashed hell on Earth upon all of us — a deluge of extreme weather events and eye-watering energy bills — whilst they revel in record-breaking profits.

We say no more! It’s time our government takes a stand against fossil fuel corporations and supports those on the sharp end of the climate crisis.


That’s why the Robin Hood Tax campaign is joining scores of civil society groups and activists up and down the country to demand the world’s biggest polluters #PayUP4LossAndDamage on the 22nd of September and we want you to join us!

The next opportunity our government has to take real action on loss and damage is in the climate international talks this November – it’s time they showed true climate leadership and backed the creation of an international loss and damage fund!


There are so many different ways you can get involved on Loss and Damage Action day, whether it’s posting a photo online, joining one of our local demonstrations, or tweeting your local MP (find your local MP), there’s something in it for everyone!
