CLICK HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION DEMANDING JUSTICE FOR THE PEOPLE & THE PLANET AT THE UN CLIMATE TALKS IN PARIS, DECEMBER 2015 Throughout the Global South and in many part of the US, frontline communities are already facing the devastating impacts of governmental climate inaction. Our communities are impacted daily by oil spills, oil refinery pollution, the dirty air from the waste incinerators, and the production of fossil based chemicals.
Just Transition is framework for building campaigns that are both visionary and oppositional.

Grassroots Global Justice Alliance announces the US chapter of the World March of Women
On the days leading up to International Women’s Day on March 8th 2015, Grassroots Global Justice (GGJ) Alliance announced the formation of the US chapter of the World March of Women, a global feminist movement with national coordinating bodies in 65 countries around the world.
On this International Women’s Day, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance celebrates women and the long fought legacy of women’s leadership in social movements, past and present.

We’re out of time.” Berta aligned herself with indigenous peoples struggles, anti-mining and extractivism, and women’s and peasants movements. She was an unrelenting fighter for her peoples, a feminist, an internationalist, and a revolutionary.

Through our work building the World March of Women we had learned about Berta's leadership and the work of COPINH. GGJ members moved our alliance to take up the Justice for Berta campaign because it was very clear that US military aide and US support for the military coup was central to the conditions that led to her assassination.
