Biofuelwatch, Colectivo VientoSur, FASE et la Coalition mondiale des forêts organisent une table ronde virtuelle avec des militants des communautés de première ligne qui discuteront et contesteront d’abord certaines des fausses solutions proposées et promues à la COP26. La discussion portera sur les raisons pour lesquelles ces fausses solutions aggravent la crise climatique et mettra en évidence les injustices auxquelles les communautés de première ligne sont confrontées en raison des industries extractives, du patriarcat, du colonialisme et du capitalisme vert.
