We want climate justice and we want it now!” That was the message of the youth and civil society in Cape Town who took to the streets on Tuesday to “March for System Change” to mark Human Rights Day and to stand in solidarity with the global climate strike.
The march from Hanover Street to Parliament was organised by the African Climate Alliance, a youth-led climate justice group, and took place under the theme “Don’t Gas Africa” to highlight the Don’t Gas Africa campaign by African civil society to ensure Africa was not locked into fossil gas production.
...“African land is not a gas station. The growing threat to use Africa as a gas station has made it clear for the need to raise Africa’s climate ambitions on the international agenda and Africa’s ability to be a key stakeholder of a green clean global economy – not just a victim of the climate crisis,” Bhebhe said.
