After COP27: Climate catastrophe & the need for revolution
This year the UN’s climate conference COP27 takes place in the luxury resort of Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt and will be chaired by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi. Sisi’s counter-revolutionary regime has viciously repressed protesters and activists. His regime helped destroy the Egyptian Revolution which gave millions of people hope when it brought down the dictator Mubarak in 2011.
Delegates will meet in the midst of a deepening climate crisis. From famine in the Horn of Africa, floods in Pakistan and Nigeria to wildfires in Europe and hurricanes in the Americas, 2022 has seen environmental disasters in almost every part of the world, which have hit the poorest people first and hardest, impacting across lines of class, race and gender.
Today, environmental movements cannot have any illusions in the COP27 process. The hope for real change lies in the revolutions and uprisings, such as those in Sudan, Iran, Sri Lanka and elsewhere which show it is possible to challenge capitalism’s multiple crises – war, economic turmoil and environmental disaster.
This online conference organised by the International Socialist Tendency will bring together activists from around the world to discuss how we can build revolutionary movements to fight for a socialist world. Speakers:
· Tuna Emren, Turkey
· Camilla Royle, Britain
· Gyekye Tanoh, Ghana
This event will run on Zoom and logon details will be sent to those who register nearer to the event.
