After 30 years of climate negotiations it is clear that the United Nations will not produce the result we need to deal with the climate collapse. COP27, far from increasing contributions to reduce greenhouse gases and honoring the historical climate debt from industrialized economies to countries and people that have contributed very little to climate change, is instead marked by intense lobbying from governments and oil companies to postpone the exit from fossil fuels.
Climate justice and the radical reform of climate negotiations in the United Nations can only come from below, from civil society, from Earth Assemblies that build territories free of extractivism, consumerism and violence. Earth Assemblies in neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, communities and municipalities that promote simple, moderate and non-anthropocentric societies.
