Putting people and planet first: Chile to Glasgow


Sun 01 Dec    
1:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Type

This year’s UN global climate talks, COP25, were due to be held in Chile in December, but the Chilean government cancelled in the midst of mass street protests against the disastrous neoliberal economic and social policies, and deepening inequalities and injustices.

The climate talks have now been moved to Madrid but the people and the movements of Chile won’t be silenced. With Glasgow set to host COP26 next year it’s vital we show solidarity with the people of Chile and and support their demands for social, environmental, and economic justice.

Join Chilean and climate activists for a day of activities organised by Friends of the Earth Scotland to understand the Chilean situation, showing solidarity, organising for climate justice and understanding the common causes of these interlinked crises.
