COP25 Opening Plenary, Antonia Zambra

Madrid, Spain (Dec 15, 2019) – Antonia Zambra, on behalf of the Women and Gender Constituency, expressed her solidarity with feminists at the frontlines of the protests in Chile and of the climate justice movement at the Joint Opening Intervention of COP, CMP, CMA, SBSTA and SBI. She challenged systems that prioritize profit over people and elites over majority, that privatize critical public goods, and uphold a model of resource extraction, environmental exploitation and militarization. She demanded climate action that ensures a rights-based and people-centered global framework that works towards a just transition for all.
