Central Executive Committee, YCL-LJC
As world leaders meet in Paris to discuss a new international agreement on climate change, youth around the world are demanding climate justice. A successful result at the COP21 negotiations demands a sharp break with multinational monopoly corporations and a rejection of imperialist and market ‘solutions’ to the climate crisis. The Young Communist League of Canada joins those voices demanding this necessary fundamental change.
The climate crisis is already causing devastation around the world and what’s at stake is the livability of the planet. Millions each year are already displaced due to drought, flooding and extreme weather exacerbated by climate change. The 2 degree Celsius warming ‘red line’ currently being discussed does not mean that catastrophic events will be entirely avoided (such as the total loss of some island nations), but the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predictions that warming will reach 3.7 to 4.8 degrees Celsius, means that global capitalism is on track to plunge humankind and the environment into chaos.
Join the 25th Che Brigade!
Since 1993, the Ernesto Che Guevara Volunteer Work Brigade has offered hundreds of Canadians the opportunity to join an exciting and informative 2-week tour of Cuba. Volunteers are afforded a first-hand view of the gains and victories of the Cuban Revolution through both a tour of significant historical and political locales of Cuba and by working alongside ordinary Cubans. The next Brigade leaves in Spring 2017.
