Climate justice Building a movement for climate justice, in solidarity with communities already affected by climate change

21 October 2017

To mark Friends of the Earth International Days of Action to mobilise against dirty energy and for climate justice last weekend, Young Friends of the Earth Ireland hosted a screening of multi-award winning film Gasland on Friday 13th October. Gasland explores the impact of natural gas drilling, or fracking, on the environment and communities in North America, highlighting the link between fossil fuel exploration and climate justice.

October 14 was a creative day for Amigos de la Tierra/ Friends of the Earth Spain. For the Days of Action, the local groups decided to paint murals collectively. And because it is nicer to paint in music, many of these actions were accompanied by live concerts and other activities to denounce the lack of climate action coming from the government as well as their connivance with the fossil fuel industry.

Our world is already experiencing man-made climate change, including here in Europe. The overconsumption of resources is contributing to the climate crisis and increasing social inequality within and between countries.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe believes the rich industrialised countries most responsible for the climate crisis, including Europe, must act first and fastest to combat it in ways that do not deepen social injustice.

 

Real solutions to climate change are available. We are working to build and strengthen a movement for climate justice and to promote genuine solutions to the climate crisis.
