Urgent Action: Climate action means supporting human rights defenders
Add your name to this petition and an email will automatically be sent to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet has described climate change as “a rapidly growing and global threat to human rights” and has called on governments “to contribute the strongest possible action to prevent climate change.”
Noting the attacks against environmental human rights defenders particularly in Latin America, Bachelet says, “We must better protect those who defend the environment.”
Please call on the Prime Minister to recognize climate change as a threat to human rights, commit to deeper emission reduction targets, and support strategies to better protect at-risk human rights defenders.
Take action to support human rights defenders! You can also add your own message in this email to the Prime Minister!
