African Civil Society Expectations in UNFCCC-COP 23

At a first press conference held at the ongoing 23rd Session of the Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Bonn, Germany, African climate justice activists expressed disagreement with Parties’ handling the US with kid gloves. The US intention, led by the Climate Denier-in-Chief President Donald Trump is, according to the Activists, "poisonous to negotiations". The Trump agenda is to dismantle the Paris Agreement, they alleged.

"Time has come when the global community should be brave enough and call a space a spade, and not a big spoon. It is the time to put Trump and his government where they belong – not to the community of nations," they demanded in a strongly worded statment whose excerpts are in a link below.
