From Lima to Paris –
The Road To Climate Justice in 2015
Teach-in & Fundraiser for the Caravana Climatica
and the People’s Climate Summit in Lima, Peru
The United Nations’ climate talks are convening in Lima, Peru from December 1-12, yet again to trade away a just and stable climate to corporations and wealthy nations. Social movements throughout Latin America have mobilized to be heard inside and outside the Lima meetings at the People’s Climate Summit. Caravana Climatica, organized by Marea Creciante.
(Rising Tide Mexico) has traveled through Mexico, Central America and South America, building solidarity amongst communities facing devastation at the point of destruction.
In Dec 2015, the United Nations will convene again in Paris, France to make decisions about our climate future. Between now and then, frontline communities and movements for climate justice and action will be mobilizing for the fight against climate change. We re-commit to mobilizing locally against fossil fuel infrastructure and Bay Area-based corporations profiting from climate change.
There will be a panel of speakers on climate and anti-extraction campaigns in Northern California, and a video call-in with Caravana Climatica organizers in Lima. Snacks and drinks will be available.
All donations will support the Caravana Climatica currently in Lima, Peru [http://caravanaclimatica.org/]. Organized by Diablo Rising Tide; http://risingtidenorthamerica.org)
Sliding scale, no one turned away.
This event is a fundraiser for some really strapped for cash climate activists who have been traveling since March from Northern Mexico to Peru.
