Tuesday December 6, 2011: With the world's attention on the UN Climate Conference (COP 17), Global Exchange stood with residents to demand rights for the people of Durban and the ecosystem on which we depend. It is time to stop relying on international leaders to solve the cliamate crisis, and to stand up for our right to define the kind of place in which we want to live and to say that "No corporation has the right to engage in activities that impact our health safety and welfare, or to destroy the ecosystem!" Global Exchange will continue to stand with residents of Durban seek legislation to be enacted by the City of Durban to secure and protect these rights. We stand with Ecuador and Bolivia, and over 140 US communities who have already recognized rights for Mother Earth.The residents of south Durban are calling for a new way to protect neighborhoods and ecosystems, and need your support to seek local legislation to secureand protect rights for communities and nature. Desmond D'Sa has been leading these tours for many years, and we were pleased to help call attention to both the toxic reality of South Durban, and to offer our support for ongoing efforts to put the community in charge of their local destiny.
