International Networks Form Unprecedented Partnership On the Streets of Copenhagen
COPENHAGEN - Climate Justice Action and
Climate Justice Now, two networks that have operated separately from outside
and inside the COP 15 Climate Conference process, are joining with local Danish
activists the Klimakollektivet and forming to merge what many are predicting to
be the largest and loudest section of the climate change march this Saturday
under the banner of ‘System Change Not Climate Change.’
Climate Justice Action and Climate Justice Now!, networks made up of
COP-critical NGOs, social movements and climate activists
distinct section of thousands of people on the climate demonstration marching
united under the banner of ‘System change not climate change’
Meeting at Parliament
Square in Copenhagen
and marching towards the Bella Centre
When: 1pm, Saturday 12 December
To create a visible political identity on the march of groups who critique the
UN process as well as the current economic system that is driving fossil fuel
consumption and climate change. 2) To provide a platform for those groups,
especially those from the global south who are most impacted by climate change,
and the groups that are most marginalised by the UN process.
Please contact us for comment and
interviews on the day, including with the high-profile activist figures giving
speeches from a flatbed truck that will be part of the march.
Climate Justice Now and Climate Justice
Action are networks that are operating inside and outside the UN climate talks
that argue that the market-based false solutions being talked about will lead
to ‘climate colonialism’ and that infinite economic growth is not possible in a
world of finite resources.
THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES
Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
