“No Climate Justice Without Human Rights”: Groups Protest Inaction at U.N. Summit in Egypt
Democracy Now! is in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, where the COP27 U.N. climate conference has entered its second week amid protests against the host government’s repression and world leaders’ inaction on the climate crisis. We speak with Asad Rehman, executive director of War on Want and lead spokesperson for the Climate Justice Coalition, who risked arrest to participate in a climate justice protest along with hundreds of others in Egypt on Saturday. “You can’t have the very people burning the planet sitting here and pretending to be drafting the solutions to it, and that’s exactly what’s happening in these climate negotiations,” says Rehman. He says imprisoned Egyptian British activist Alaa Abd El-Fattah is “part and parcel of our struggle,” as calls to free El-Fattah continue after he sent proof of life in a letter for the first time since beginning a full hunger and water strike last week. We also speak with Nigerian environmentalist Nnimmo Bassey, who says the perception that this is an African COP is “a big misnomer,” as the African delegates feel largely excluded.

Democracy Now is preaching through their NED (national Endowment for Democracy) puppets. Still no mention about the Canadian, Dutch and German farmers protest's.
Show the real science.! Not the predictions none or which have been true !!!!!!!!!!
The entire Earth is scheduled to be destroyed, no climate change laws can stop it. Depopulation and genocide won't prevent it, but will only make it worse.
Evil has been ruling for a long, long time. Evil has run its course, and now that evil is running out. Time is up, for evil.
Christ is coming back with FERVENT HEAT, the wicked, the evil, and the beast will be destroyed with brightness of His coming. Repent! The coming of the Lord is at hand!

This is one time I’m glad Biden is a liar…
Blessings to the Parent land
This is a communist site.
"Climate change" is a 150 year old, failed, doomsday prophecy & the only goal for pushing it is so that the richest in the world can grow even richer by scamming TRILLIONS for "carbon tax credits" when they're the ones causing most of the pollution through their companies in the first place.
Want to combat climate change, then do so locally by consuming less & cleaning up your immediate environment, then encouraging your neighbors to do so as well.
Ole' Joe, making it up as he goes…
The United States will give nothing. Republicans have won the Congress and will never participate in this scam.
Boycott the world cup! Boycott the Saudis! Boycott the Saudi Prince eliminate him!
Take some responsibility! It's something you expect from the public! Be who you say we ought to be!!!
No climate justice without population control.
Also free Allaa
Lobbyists should have no part in any COP. it’s like police policing themselves. Stupid and horrible.
Barack spoke On Climate. He was condemn as usual
This isn't about climate. This is about convincing the masses of public to voluntarily give up food, clothing, shelter and any means of survival so the rich elites can preserve the very limited fossil fuels for themselves. We have 53 years left at our current rate of consumption, how on earth is it possible to heat things up in 53 years? Don't think the rich won't have access to burn it while we all freeze and starve to death. When will humans learn anytime influencing the masses is at hand it is always fraudulent?
WHAT A JOKE. Its funny how these leftist morons always are attacking the US. The united states has more human right laws than any other country in the world, and has more EPA laws and restrictions than any other industrial country in the world, try starting a manufacturing company in the US and you will find out why manufacturing has moved out of the US to the rest of the world. Beijing china has 10x the amount of smog than 1970 Los angeles did. this person is 100% on the leftist pay role and gets payed handsomely to do it with no regard for you or me. Do your own research, leftist news does not count as reliable info it is propaganda to support the NWO agenda. you never hear them attacking china,India, and Russia for polluting the environment that is because they don't play this game..
I think the private jet setters should pay for this hypocrisy they are the epitome of..
Global warming climate change acts of almighty GOD authority power of over nature…
It should be clear to you by now that carbon emissions are a lie. The environment and the people will suffer far more from toxic chemicals in "clean energy." This money will go to toxic mining companies and NGO's who will donate much of it back to the politicians. Their ultimate goal is to half the population and replace "useless feeders" with robots.
Anyone who didn't walk to COP-27 is a hypocrite.
Amy is such an intelligent journalist!
THE WORLD IS NOT A GREENHOUSE.. THE WORLD IS NOT A GREENHOUSE…. THE WORLD IS NOT A GREENHOUSE…. THE WORLD IS NOT A GREENHOUSE.. THE WORLD IS NOT A GREENHOUSE.
If we don't stop and take this seriously we will burn!
What a joke, corporation's will milk the profit of our great planet until only they can survive, something must be done.Stop the raping of our planet and punish the corporation.
COP is a joke, making excuses for doing nothing while being funded by the fossil fuel industries to do as little as possible. it is just a PR stunt from the fossil fuel companies.
Climate Change is fake therefore Dem. Now is 🤥
In the end times there will be a great falling away from truth, lawlessness will abound. If you confess Jesus is Lord, believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead you will be saved (fromhell) Romans10:9 Please repent/believe. Please think about it. Jesus died for you. Love Ya
Climate Change is a creation of the Elites to distract you from the real root cause of the problems… THEM.
They manufacture and fund the science that they propagate through their own mainstream media outlets and no one questions it, so sad… all these people are basically agents of the people they claim to be against…
Best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves – Lenin
ban private jet usage. While you eat bugs they fly their private lola expresses above you.
Human rights very important ask LGBTQ community they can tell you
Keep Speaking 🗣️ Truth To Power
No environment no planet
THERE IS NO DEMOCRACY WITH DEMOCRAPS! IS A DICTATORSHIP! They DONT RESPECT OUR LAWS OR CONSTITUTION! They want to Rule with their own Laws, mandates, Rules etc. They want to change The LAW OF THE LAND! Imply the one from The Global Organization! Thats why they call it The New World ORDERS! GOD SAVE THE WORLD FROM THEM!
“Live in a pod, eat the bugs own nothing” while we sit in our villas eating steak by the beach flying in our private jets
G7 nations r only interested in military expansion in order to expand their world dominance. They have no real interest in addressing global warming unless they can make massive profits from it.
here’s goes America again. trying to solve the world problems while ignoring our own here. it never will change
All lip service until capitalism is put to rest. The corporations will continue to rape the earth for private gain before the last tree is cut down and the last fish caught.
Protests is ok, but need to be careful next time.
Democracy Now has now moved on to the Globalist agenda touting Human Rights and Climate Justice. This will be the end of civil rights and democracy. We will be left with a world wide totalitarian regime and no rights if these budding technocrats get their way. Harm reduction as a Global doctrine will ultimately leave all decisions in the hands of an elite who will decide what harm is and how to correct it. The indigenous groups and minority groups are useful idiots, in way over their heads.
Over 400 private jets flew there to fight climate change. The hypocrisy

There can be no climate justice without human rights. And there can also be no human rights without climate justice. The freedom to live and have a healthy home and community to live in is a right that we all deserve
