GJAE & Allies Take Action for Environmental, Climate, and Trade Justice on Two Continents During Lima Climate Summit
As representative of the world's governments gathered in Lima, GJAE activists in Peru and the US raised the alarms about the between free trade policy and climate change, about the ongoing war on the environment and environmentalists in Peru, and on the vital need to address unsustainable food systems as a key strategy for combating climate change.
In Lima, GJAE Latin America coordinator Ana Maria Quispe Piscoya participated in a series of conference and actions, where she spoke on the link between climate change and global food production and the threat posed to global climate by free trade agreements.
In New York, GJAE collaborated with Peruvian community activists and other environmental, climate justice, human rights, and trade justice activists to organize a demonstration at the Peruvian Consulate, denouncing the murder of indigenous land defenders and other environmental activists and exposing Peruvian President Humala's duplicity in hosting a global climate summit while. pushing for expanded resource extraction in Peru along with two more massive, potentially environmentally devastating trade deals, TPP and TISA.
