Who we are
The #StopRosebank campaign is made up of individuals, grassroots groups and organisations across Scotland, the rest of UK and the world who are dedicated to ending all new oil and gas extraction and bringing existing production within safe climate limits.
The network started in 2021 with a successful campaign to stop the Cambo oil field and has expanded to take on all new fields in the UK, specifically focusing on Shell's Jackdaw gas field and Equinor's massive Rosebank oil field.
We’re united by a belief in climate justice, which requires a just transition and countries like the UK doing their fair share in combating the climate crisis, recognising the climate debt that rich countries owe the rest of the world following centuries of colonisation and climate emissions.
We believe in a transition that is just, where oil and gas workers, their unions and communities are meaningfully involved in the phase out of fossil fuels and the shift to more sustainable jobs. #StopRosebank is one of many struggles against fossil fuel extraction in the UK and abroad. We stand in solidarity with those who are facing new conflicts and those who have long resisted oil and gas extraction.
