It Takes Roots to Grow the Solutions
COP23 Bonn, Germany Nov 4 – 17, 2017
The Indigenous Environmental Network, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, and the Climate Justice Alliance have joined forces again for a powerful delegation of more than 20 frontline leaders from North American climate justice movements to the23rd Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP23) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Bonn, Germany.
What’s at stake in COP23?
Our duty is to organize the whole population affected by dams in Brazil while exposing the contradictions of this society. If from one side, the companies and the governments choose to follow a principle of commodification of water, energy, and people's lives, the affected women choose to follow the principle of life, of common good: water and energy are not commodities, they are part of the sovereignty, the creation of wealth and redistribution should therefore be under popular control.
Grassroots Global Justice Alliance (GGJ), Climate Justice Alliance (CJA), Right to the City Alliance (RTTC) and Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN) are teaming up for the It Takes Roots to Grow the Resistance Delegation from January 18-21, 2017 and Trans-Local Actions in the first 100 days of the Trump administration.
At the end of 2015, Grassroots Global Justice, the Indigenous Environmental Network and the Climate Justice Alliance built the It Takes Roots to Weather the Storm delegation to Paris. We took to the streets along our social movement allies from around the world to raise the critical struggles facing frontline communities who are facing the worst impacts of the climate crisis an the extractive dig-burn-dump economy.
The World Social Forum (WSF) is a process of global convergence founded in Brazil in 2001 under the slogan “Another World is Possible.” From its roots in the anti-globalization movement, World Social Forums have provided a space for activists from all over the world to meet, debate and discuss strategies. The events have been crucial in building global movements against war, poverty and environmental destruction.
This week of September 26, 2016, GGJ members are on a "Berta Vive" Feminist Delegation to Standing Rock in solidarity with the #NoDAPL struggle to protect the water and land from a destructive pipeline project by the Dakota Access Pipeline.
