Why you should join the Global Day for Climate Justice
We are living through a period of multiple breaking points – from climate to covid to racism. We know that these crises not only overlap, but share the same cause. The climate crisis already means loss of lives, homes, livelihoods and ecosystems for indigenous communities and the poorest and most marginalised within countries, and across the world. While no one can escape the impacts of these crises, those who have done least to cause them suffer the most. Across the world, the poorest people and communities of colour are too often those bearing the brunt of the climate crisis. From coastal villages in Norfolk whose sea-defences are eroding faster than ever, to people living by the Niger Delta rivers blackened by oil spillage.
Justice won’t be handed to us by world leaders or delivered by corporations. Only we can imagine and build the future that works for all of us. The transformative solutions that we need to survive and build a more just and fair world can only be brought about through collective action, solidarity and coordination, from our local communities and international levels.
We are bringing together movements from across the world to build power for system change – indigenous movements, frontline communities, trade unions, racial justice groups, youth strikers, landworkers, peasants, NGOs, grassroots community campaigns, feminist movements, faith groups… to name a few.
Wherever you are in the world, now is the time to join the fight for climate justice. We need all hands on deck: in workplaces, communities, schools, hospitals and across national borders.
Global Justice Now can offer some subsidised travel to Glasgow and some accommodation options if you are planning to come up to protest during COP26. Find out more
