Civil Society Demands on Parties in the COP 17 Negotiatio​ns –

Khulumani endorses the demands presented to negotiators at the COP 17 conference:

“We, the poor and working class of South Africa and the world, demand Climate Justice.”

“We demand that our governments stop selling out to the rich and demand significant, legally binding emissions agreements.”

“The retreat from the moderate targets set out in the Kyoto protocols and a legally binding second commitment period for Annex 1 countries is a disgrace.”

“The historical responsibility for the climate crisis sits with them, yet now they want to stand aside while the people of the global South perish.”
