Global Day for Climate Justice. Join United Against Racism marching as part of the COP26 Coalition Ireland and Climate Coalition of Northern Ireland.
Unite the Union, Ireland puts it clearly: “The climate crisis affects us all, but those who have done least to cause it all too often bear the brunt – from workers in Ireland whose jobs are threatened by decarbonisation, to people living by the Niger Delta rivers blackened by oil spillage.”
Solidarity with Climate Refugees. No to Racism
Climate Change is real and it is happening. There are already millions of people facing the risk of forced displacement and becoming refugees due to climate change and related disasters. According to some estimates there will be up to 250 million climate refugees globally in the next decade.
Refugees of the wars have been subjected to widespread barbaric border policies and racism. Governments that supposed to respect human rights and look after people fleeing wars and persecution have turned their backs to refugees.
Today, climate change is threatening the living conditions of millions of people. The world leaders gathered at COP26 in Glasgow know that. They have the power to take real action and stop it. But, will they?
We must organise and put pressure on them. For all of us here and internationally before millions of innocent people becoming climate refugees and facing, yet again, deadly borders and racism.
