URGENT Oil Action

With drilling for oil due to commence in the next few weeks we need to apply pressure on Cairn Energy, registered in Edinburgh, which has a 20% interest in the oil exploration and exploitation.

Write to Simon Thompson, the CEO, asking that Cairn withdraws from this illegal exploration. For a draft letter and background information please download our Cairn Energy Action Sheet (18 KB).

The Western Sahara Campaign works in solidarity with the Saharawi people to generate political support in order to advance their right to self-determination and to promote their human rights. Our role is to lobby the UK Government and the EU. You can help us to ensure the UK does not ignore the voice of the Saharawi people.
