Call out: Create thousands of Cancuns for climate justice!

La Via Campesina calls on social movements and all people to mobilize around the world
The people create thousands of solutions to confront climate change!

Social movements from around the world are mobilizing for the 16th Conference of the Parties (COP 16) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that will take place in Cancun from 29 November to 10 December 2010.
The COP 15 in Copenhagen demonstrated governments‘ incapacity to tackle the root causes of the current climate chaos. At the very last moment, the US undemocratically pushed through the so called „Copenhagen accord“, in an attempt to move the debate out of the UN and the Kyoto promises and to favor even more voluntarily free market solutions.

We call on social movements, popular organizations and all people of the world to organize on December 7, 2010, thousands of protests and actions to reject the false and market-based solutions. We declare ourselves in permanent mobilization until we defeat the big market negotiations in Cancun in December.
