For the planet which sustains us, for the people who suffer at the hands of the system which has failed us, and for the future generations threatened by environmental & climate crisis, and social & economic hardship.
For too long the rights and wellbeing of people and planet have been sidelined for the purpose of creating wealth for a few. This has created a system that treats people and our living planet as worthless. This has led to many interlinking crises: from income inequality, to water and food insecurity, to the climate crisis.
The climate crisis is already posing one of the biggest human rights challenges in human history. We need energy, water, housing and food access for all now! We need this to be done in ways that are sustainable and do not perpetuate the harms of colonialism and apartheid. The government must prioritise a just transition while we come together as people to build a more just and ecologically resillient South Africa!
In addition to the March we are engaging in a Cape Town Climate week to showcase practical actions for system change. Read the full press release here.
