Earth Day 2016: We Are Mother Earth’s Red Line
On this Earth Day and every day, Grassroots International is honored and humbled to stand together with the social movements around the world that are most impacted by ecological destruction, and that are at the forefront of struggles for ecological justice. As members of the Grassroots Global Justice Alliance and the Climate Justice Alliance, we are proud to share an important report released this week.
“We Are Mother Earth’s Red Line: Frontline Communities Lead the Climate Justice Fight Beyond the Paris Agreement” shares our collective political analysis of the Paris Agreement, This valuable resource also goes a step further by showing how grassroots organizing groups, especially in low-income communities and communities of color, are taking leadership to address the root causes of climate disruption and put forward real solutions for a just transition. We invite you to read and share this report widely, as well as the accompanying short video, below:
As we did in Paris, Grassroots International is excited to continue accompanying our Global South partners and making links between them and grassroots groups in the US. We are grateful to all our partners, allies and supporters who are contributing such valuable time, energy, and resources toward collective efforts in defense of the earth, including humanity and all forms of life. Together, we are building stronger movements for climate justice!
