Our Statement to COP27 in Egypt: Human Rights are Climate Justice!
International climate negotiations and its governance have continuously failed to address the root causes of the climate crisis, among others: racism, sexism, colonialism, and capitalism. Movements around the world have been repeatedly raising concerns around the obsoleteness of such conferences. They do not live up to what Most Affected People and Areas (MAPAs) demand: representation, decision-making power, reparations.
This year, in Sharm El-Sheikh, the hopes for change are lower than ever, due to the alarming escalation of securitization around this conference. El-Sisi`s dictatorship puts activists and movements, especially those from Egypt and other Global South countries, in grave danger of persecution and violence during and after COP27.

There can not be any climate justice without Human rights! There is no one without the other.
30/11/2021 This month the COP 26 happened in Glasgow Scotland.
As usual it led to a lot of disappointment amongst actors in the climate justice struggle.
