A victory for India's farmers, a victory for all!
Building our Collective Power for Immediate and Long-term Change: An Urgent Call to Scale Up in Scope, Speed and Intensity*
Lidy Nacpil, APMDD Coordinator
COVID19 brought staggering challenges to survival to people everywhere, most of whom have already been dealing with economic precariousness, impacts of an escalating climate crisis, and violence in many forms. This is especially true for women, for people of color, for indigenous peoples, migrants, farmers, workers and others who have had to grapple with additional layers of discrimination and marginalization.
To the participants of the 2021 Finance in Common Summit: move from commitments to action!
As a key milestone to COP 26 and avowed supporter of common action for climate, biodiversity and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the #FinanceinCommonSummit2021 must ensure that public development banks and the governments that control them must commit to take bold, rapid and concrete steps in the right direction to address the multiple crises that the world, especially the Global South, continue to face.
We reiterate our calls to
-End public financing of fossil fuels now!
-Stop public financing of industrialized agricultural systems!
-Cancel unsustainable and illegitimate debts of developing countries!
