ATM Statement | December 9, 2023
Alyansa Tigil Mina joins the whole country and the international community in the Global Day of Action for Climate Justice to demand solutions to the climate crisis and build power for system change.
Our members in various Sites of Struggles are mobilizing to show our solidarity with all climate advocates fighting for climate justice.
Together with various organizations, we call on governments and stakeholders to uphold human rights alongside climate justice. We believe there can be no climate justice without human rights. This means the fulfillment of everyone’s human rights must be included in the just solutions to the climate crisis.
Many human rights are affected by climate change, including the right to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment, right to water and sanitation, right to self-determination and right to health. Along with other human rights, these are the same rights that are being violated in communities affected by large-scale mining.
As we call on government to address the climate emergency, we also demand a stop to destructive mining operations and the re-imposition of the ban on open-pit mining. We believe that mining worsens the impact of climate change at the same time that it contributes to climate change.
Furthermore, we warn governments and huge corporations against using the so-called transition minerals for clean energy as a justification for indiscriminate mining. We reject the shameless opportunism of corporations and institutions that push for more mining as they offer what are deemed to be “false solutions” to the climate crisis.
We stand with all forces calling for system change, climate justice and human rights.
