Manifesto of the women of CLOC-VíaCampesina Peru from the First National Conference of Women for Climate Justice in Defense of Mother Earth, toward COP20


In the global level, we energetically reject “false solutions” to global warming. Climate negotiations have become a great marketplace, creating tools and mechanisms to clean up the image of the most polluting countries and companies, such as the “Clean Development Mechanism” (CDM) or REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation). These tools allow the capitalist system to continue to consume the natural resources that belong in common to all humanity.
