The environmental struggle cannot be separated from the different struggles happening today. There can be no climate or environmental justice without social justice. Let us continue to stand united in the face of the challenges of our times and reclaim our democratic spaces so we can all take part in building a system that puts people over profit and defends our environment defenders; a society where climate justice is the new normal.
Workers are the foundation of the future national industries of the Philippines, they, along with the youth, are at the forefront of the battle for our future; we must continue struggling together for climate and social justice.
Today, we raise our voices to appeal for rational actions to avoid even more disastrous effects of climate change by changing our current profit-driven economic system to a more sustainable one that caters the needs of the people and the environment.
When we call for climate justice, it also means calling for justice for our environment defenders, which include our fisherfolk.
