COP26 needs .....

Posted October 31, 2021 from Fiji

As the week dawns on #COP26 here's a little message to all the negotiators and political leaders:

"You cannot afford to  ignore the pollution that continues to destroy our earth, ocean and sky. Don't talk about loans if you continue to invest in militarization. This isn't the time for winning political points"

"This is the time for you to listen to #Pacific #communities,  #youngwomen. This is not the time for back-peddling negotiations. This is about the future of our #islandhomes where our children and grandchildren live today These are the children you relive the fear of intensifying cyclones. Who deserve clean water, healthy and food security. This is the time for true, inclusive, leadership"
