Global Day for Climate Justice

6 November @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

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 green washed ‘solutions’ that actually don’t exist yet, that don’t address the scale of the problem, and in many cases rely on even more exploitation of people and the planet.
In response to the conditions of the pandemic, the COP26 Coalition is organising decentralised demonstrations and actions across the UK and across the world. This will be on 6th November, the first Saturday of COP26.
