Climate Justice Global Day of Action and People’s Summit
By Yaz Brien 31st October 2021
While world leaders meet in Glasgow for the COP26 global climate talks, people all over the world are mobilising for climate justice.
The COP26 Coalition is a UK-based civil society coalition of groups and individuals mobilising around climate justice during COP26. Coalition members include environment and development NGOs, trade unions, grassroots community campaigns, faith groups, youth groups, migrant and racial justice networks – to name a few.
They are bringing together movements from across the world to build power for system change while putting Indigenous, frontline and Global South communities front and centre.
They are calling on communities across the world to join a Global Day of Action for Climate Justice on 6th November to demand:
- No More Cooking The Books: No To Fossil Fuels, Net-zero And False Solutions
- Rewire The System: Start The Justice Transition Now
- Global Climate Justice: Reparations And Redistribution To Indigenous Communities and The Global South
