COP26 Coalition – Final Press Statement
“This agreement is an utter betrayal of the people. It is hollow words on the climate emergency from the richest countries, with an utter disregard of science and justice. The UK Government greenwash and PR have spun us off course.
The rich refused to do their fair share, with more empty words on climate finance and turning their back on the poorest who are facing a crisis of covid coupled with economic and climate apartheid – all caused by the actions of the richest.
It’s immoral for the rich to sit there talking about their future children and grandchildren, when the children of the South are suffering now.
This COP has failed to keep 1.5c alive, and set us on a pathway to 2.5c. All while claiming to act as they set the planet on fire.
At COP26, the richest got what they came here for, and the poorest leave with nothing.
The people are rising up across the globe to hold our governments and corporations to account – and make them act.”
