COP 22 Closing, Carmen Capriles

Marrakech, Morocco (November, 18, 2016) – Carmen Capriles delivered the final intervention for the COP22, highlighting the key areas where Parties need to work on commitment and ambition. She stated for example, ““Women, youth and Indigenous peoples are telling you that unending growth, over-consumption and privatization entrench structural inequalities. As the climate stakes rise, women human rights defenders protecting their land and water are at risk of being murdered by governments and corporations. Women climate justice activists like me should not be outlawed and criminalized.”
