The British government is pursuing trade deals that would be a disaster for the climate, like joining #CPTPP (a sister deal to TTIP). These acts of environmental vandalism make a mockery of the UK's #COP26 presidency. huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/u…

Just look at this map. There are still 16 countries which have vaccinated *less than 1%* of their population. We need #TRIPSWaiver now, so developing nations can produce vaccines. This #VaccineApartheid MUST end!

Financial groups and international credit institutions to guarantee poor countries the basic needs of their people and to waive those debts so often contracted against the interests of those same peoples.

On #WorldFoodDay we stand with @via_campesina and the global food sovereignty movement. People who produce, distribute and consume food must be at the centre of decisions on food systems and policies, not big business. #NoFutureWithoutFoodSovereignty #FoodSovereigntyNOW #16Oct
