We demand reparations. Why do countries in the Global North owe a debt to countries in the Global South – and indigenous peoples and communities of colour in the Global North – and why must it be repaid in order to address climate change and deal with its impacts?

All events will take place on Zoom and we will email through the relevant links beforehand when you register. You can get help installing zoom here.
