Global Day of Action for Climate Justice
WhenSaturday, 6th November 2021
World leaders will meet in Glasgow in November at the global climate talks, COP26. COP COALITION26 is organising decentralised mass mobilisations across the world, bringing together movements to build power for system change – from indigenous struggles to trade unions, from racial justice groups to youth strikers.
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.
COP26: why does it matter?
World leaders and experts will meet in Glasgow in November at the global climate talks, COP26.
Global problems need global solutions. The decisions made at COP26 will shape how governments respond (or not) to the climate crisis. They will decide who is to be sacrificed, who will escape and who will make a profit. So far, governments have done too little too late: colluding with corporations and hiding behind greenwashed ‘solutions’ that actually don’t exist yet, that don’t address the scale of the problem, and in many cases rely on more exploitation of people and the planet.
COP26 is happening at a crucial moment in history. Across the world and across movements, we are seeing a new wave of resistance, global solidarity and grassroots organising. We have a unique opportunity to rewire our system as we recover from the pandemic. We can either intensify the crisis to the point of no return, or lay the foundations for a just world where everyone’s needs are met.
