Over the past year, with the rise of right-wing populism, white nationalism and increased hate violence, our movements have taken on a higher level of cross-sector coordination, greater alignment of grassroots alliances and national dialogue and action on racism, sexism, xenophobia.
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?
This is a huge week for the Honduran movement and the family of Berta Cáceres, Honduran movement leader who was assassinated at night in her home on March 2, 2016 because of the organizing she did to defend the Lenca Indigenous Peoples’ land, rights and territory, and to protest transnational corporations and the Honduran government.
Join us this Saturday, August 19th as we Confront White Supremacy from Charlottesville to the White House.
The events in Charlottesville are not an anomaly; they are happening all over America. In cities like Durham, Tampa and New Orleans, people are organizing to take down racist monuments. Symbols of white supremacy take different forms; for some it is a monument, for others it’s street name or campus building. For many it is an institution that continues to inflict harm on their people.
This week GGJ joins our ally organization Witness for Peace for a Week of Action for Berta Cáceres. Yesterday marked the 8th anniversary of the Honduran coup. Since then, violence in the country has increaced significantly, specifically towards activists, the defenders of land, justice and human rights.
