Sometimes, we need to feel a sense of connectedness in order to move forward with purpose and vigour, especially since we face so much resistance in the fight to end our dependency on fossil fuels. This photo series highlights the #Breakfree movement, which saw thousands of people participate in an international show of solidarity to demand an end to fossil fuel dependency. Covering six continents, the photos show people from all backgrounds making a stand against projects and practices that threaten their access to a clean, healthy sustainable way of life. From disruptions to mass marches, it was an event that received very little media coverage but had a major impact. Governance demands the participation of its citizens, whether you pick up garbage on the street, march, plant a tree or vote, every step counts.
