Cop 21, Paris 10,Dec 2015
Students from The US made an Action this afternoon at the Green Climate Zone to pressure the negotiators to address the need of environmental justice to the low income and communities of colour in the US. The die in session at the Green generation zone was turned out positive with all the activists lying on the floor.
Low income and communities of colour are hit hard by toxic waste from industries and climate change yet the government has shown less interest in addressing the situation.
They cannot breathe because chemicals and other toxic wastes are allowed to contaminate the air. Sierra student put out an open question to the negotiators "Do you know what its like to be scared to go outside because you cannot breath"
