Opening Event: The Era of Injustice is Over
COP26 is the most exclusionary in history, with thousands blocked from making their voices heard. COP26 is happening at a crucial moment in history, as we live through a period of multiple breaking points from climate to covid to racism. We know that these crises not only overlap, but share the same cause.
The COP26 Coalition invites you to our opening event to hear speakers from across the climate justice movement, including indigenous activists, youth from Fridays For Future Most Affected Peoples and Areas, activists from Glasgow and leading voices from the Global South.
Host: Quan Nguyen, COP26 Coalition
Cultural contribution from Àdhamh Ó Broin & Minga Indigena
Mary Church, Friends of the Earth Scotland
Tom Ballantine, Stop Climate Chaos Scotland
Lauren MacDonald, Stop Cambo
Asad Rehman, War on Want
