COP24 United Nations Climate Conference - Climate Justice Alliance

Heads of state and international leaders met in Poland in December 2018, for COP24, the UN climate-change talks. The Climate Justice Alliance was on the ground as well, together with the Indigenous Environmental Network, Grassroots Global Justice, the Just Transition Alliance, and Via Campesina, as part of the It Takes Roots North American Frontline delegation. We mobilized to bring the voices of community-driven solutions to the climate crisis, and to continue pressure against corporate greenwashing and carbon trading schemes. We threw down with the youth of SustainUS and organized an intervention during the US administration panel, which pushed for the continual use of fossil fuels and dirty energy. On the closing day, we joined a sit-in with our international allies.
