Climate Justice Action (CJA) "is a global network of groups and individuals committed to taking action to prevent catastrophic climate change".[1] CJA formed as part of the alternative mobilisation around the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, and organised mass Direct actions during the conference.[2]

Aims[edit]

The Network has a strong emphasis on climate justice, and has the following goals:[3]

  • To promote and strengthen the rights and voices of Indigenous and affected peoples (including workers) in confronting the climate crisis. To support reparations and the repayment of ecological debt to the Global South by industrialized rich countries
  • To build a global movement for climate justice that encourages urgent action to avoid catastrophic climate change.
  • To highlight the critical role of biodiversity in weathering the climate crisis, and to defend the existence of all species.
  • To expose the roles of false and market-based climate “solutions” as well as corporate domination of climate negotiations in worsening the climate crisis.
  • To advance alternatives that can provide real and just solutions to the climate crisis.
  • To both sharpen our understanding of, and to address, the root social, ecological, political and economic causes of the climate crisis toward a total systemic transformation of our society.
  • Our network is committed to working with respect, trust and unity towards these goals.
