GUE/NGL, the left group in the European Parliament, is launching our Climate Emergency Manifesto. The latest IPCC Special Report, which warned of the mass human and ecological suffering of global warming at 2° Celsius, coupled with the mass social movement for change of climate politics, leads us to make clear our demands on climate action before the EU elections next month.
The Left is the only group that makes demands commensurate to what the climate strikers are asking for. We stand for a change of the system, not politics as usual. Green capitalism will fail to bring about the rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes we need to effect to stop global warming in the next 11 years. We are MEPs from all corners of Europe, and this is our declaration of climate emergency.
