Ruth Nyambura at COP27

“COP is this big ceremony (…) where largely false solutions have emerged [and] are being pushed by corporations [and] elites. (…) We’re here to challenge [false solutions] and say that we understand what climate justice is.”

“[We are] speaking about the historical debt that the Global North owes to the Global South, the debt that is owed to Indigenous peoples, (…) to all to formerly colonized people, (…) the debt that we continue to claim, the reparations that we need. We want structural change.”
