Fossilgasfällan är en fristående gräsrotskampanj som är en del av den internationella rörelsen för att stoppa gasutvecklingen i världen. På lokalt plan arbetar vi för att stoppa bygget av den planerade fossilgasterminalen i Göteborgs hamn, GO4LNG. Terminalen planeras för att öka importen av fossilgas till Sverige, vilket kommer att låsa in oss i ett nytt fossilt beroende när vi måste ställa om till 100% förnybart. Det är en fossilgasfälla helt enkelt! Vi säger #NO2LNG!
