A recent UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report stated that the earth is warmer than it’s been in 125,000 years. Fires are raging across the world and the Amazon’s burning season has already destroyed over 100,000 hectares of rainforest. As we collectively face this global climate emergency, Indigenous peoples across the Amazon Basin are calling for international solidarity and the protection of 80% of the Amazon by 2025. We must protect the rainforest and defend Indigenous rights for our climate’s future. We are answering that call and have plans to support you to start or deepen your solidarity. You’re going to want to be a part of this global mobilization!
In solidarity with Indigenous peoples and allies from around the world, we’re launching a Global Week of Action for the Amazon from September 5 – 11 via the NooWorld app. NooWorld is a social platform made by activists, for activists to build worldwide solidarity for climate justice. By joining us, you’ll gain a community of people who are also learning about different threats to the Amazon and our climate. You bring your voice and solidarity, and we’ll bring you opportunities to join in on collective action from the Amazon to the San Francisco Bay Area to anywhere online.
During the Global Week of Action, you’ll join campaigns and show your solidarity with Indigenous peoples and Women Defenders of the Amazon who will be mobilizing in force during the week. You can join to amplify their resistance and solutions and take action to hold accountable governments and corporations complicit in Amazon destruction. You’ll learn how to spot “false solutions” and how net-zero can be co-opted by corporations, directly from Indigenous communities affected and resisting. There will also be an opportunity to support a youth-led day of action for the Amazon and Climate Justice from wherever you are in the world, among many other opportunities for action.
Join us on the NooWorld app for the Global Week of Action for the Amazon to get involved and show your support for the Amazon rainforest and its Indigenous defenders!
