Social movements from around the world are mobilising for the UN climate talks that will take place in Cancun from November 29 to December 10, 2010.
Thousands of women and men, people affected by the destruction of the environment, farmers, landless, Indigenous Peoples and activists from all sectors of society will gather in Cancun to propose thousands of solutions to confront the climate crisis. They will show the world leaders their opposition to the false solutions to climate change being discussed at the climate conference, such as market-based proposals on carbon trading; REDD; agrofuels; and geo-engineering.
Friends of the Earth International, together with Via Campesina and World March of Women, are calling for social movements, popular organisations and individuals around the world to amplify the calls for climate justice and to organise protests and actions rejecting false climate change solutions and to support a people’s agenda for climate justice.
Please organise or take part in a mobilisation near you on December 7, the International Day of Action. Mobilisations can take the form of marches, demonstrations, parties, festivals, discussions and much more. They can take place wherever you like: in cities, villages, schools and community centres.
