Africa demands climate justice Monday 10 October, Brighton

More than ever before, rich industrialised countries are using the UN climate talks as an excuse to advance corporate interests. In the run up to the climate talks in Durban, South Africa, this December people across Africa and the world are demanding climate justice.

As part of our climate justice speaker tour, join us to hear Desmond D’Sa, coordinator of South Durban Community Environmental Alliance and Deborah Doane, World Development Movement director.

When: Monday 10 October, 7pm
Where: Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD

Find out how you can take action against the UK’s unfair policies that are prioritising corporate profits via discredited institutions such as the World Bank. Not only will this fail to tackle climate change, but it will also deepen existing global inequalities.

Desmond D’Sa is coordinator of South Durban Community Environmental Alliance, which mobilises local people against industrial pollution. A veteran campaigner on local and global environmental justice issues, he’s centrally involved in organising the alternative civil society space during the UN talks. He will be speaking in Brighton, Bristol, London and Eastleigh.
