GAPP in Solidarity at the International Climate March
As members of the Wretched of the Earth Global Frontline Bloc, the Global Afrikan People’s Parliament delivered a strong message of ‘We Charge Genocide and Ecocide’ to the British State and the Internationally state sanctioned/state led criminality that continues to rape and plunder planet earth.
The International #ClimateMarch held on 29th November 2015 in London and over 170 countries worldwide, spoke in one voice against the many faces of corporate and state abetted evils that continue to risk the future of flora, fauna and humanity. The Wretched of the Earth Frontline Bloc took pole position on the march given the impact of climate change impacting most critically on the Black and Brown people of the Global South. Pictured here also is the banner of the Emancipation Day Afrikan Reparation March Committee which demands a stop to our Maangamizi – the Afrikan hellacaust and its current manifestations. Please join them on August 1st for the Annual march for Reparatory Justice from Windrush Sq to Parliament where the Stop the Maangamizi petition will be delivered to Downing St.
Of the #ClimateMarch one participant reflected:
Tillah Willah said: “I went to the Climate March in London -a 50,000 strong triumph – so the organisers say.
It was cold literally and otherwise and I walked through the march and I walked through the march feeling like an outsider until I got to the front where the Wretched of the Earth bloc were marching.
It was good to walk with the Global Pan Afrikan Peoples Parliament, it was good to hear Ken Saro Wiwa‘s name being called, it was good to meet with the young members of Black Dissidents it was good to meet Indigenous people from the South Pacific, Peru, Northern Scandinavia…. she also went on to say….”We are watching you, governments of the Caribbean, Africa and Asia who are still convinced that industrialisation is the only way forward, yes you bauxite mining in Jamaica, yes you T&T with your obscene levels of CO2 production per capita, yes you Nigeria with your unchecked oil pollution, yes you India trying to steal land from the Adivasis.To the governments of the Caribbean, Africa and Asia who are aiding and abetting corporate colonialism, we are watching you and promise that our communities are finding each other, we are linking our struggles and we are joining voices and forces for justice.” Well said! Tillah Willah! #ClimateMarch
