While governments meet at the UN Climate Change Conference, COP26 in Glasgow, we, the people come together to denounce any solutions that are not informed by our struggles for self-determination, including Palestinians’ anti-colonial struggle.
On Nov. 9th we will denounce solutions to climate change that continue to perpetuate Israel’s three-tiered system of oppression: settler colonialism, apartheid and military occupation through a workshop titled ‘How Apartheid Israel and Climate Change are Intertwined.’
Abeer Butmeh (PENGON-FOE Palestine), Manal Shqair (Stop the Wall Campaign), Ya’araa Peretz (One Climate) and Fiona Ben Chekroun (BDS Movement) will share their insights about the intertwinement between Israel’s long-standing oppression of the Palestinian people, EU/Western extractivism and climate change.
The speakers will also be defining steps to stop the Jewish National Fund and joint gas projects between Israel and the EU in the Mediterranean; as well as discuss the joint struggle and mutual solidarity to achieve self-determination and climate justice for Palestinians from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.
