Why is Yeb Sano not at the UN Climate Talks in Lima?
At the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, we watched him stand up for the Philippines in Warsaw and the whole world listened. He fasted to end the madness of inaction of world leaders to #ClimateChange and the international community supported him. He walked 1,000 kilometers for 40 days to Tacloban to demand for #ClimateJustice and thousands walked with him.
Barring Yeb Sano in the Philippine Delegation at this crucial stage of the climate negotiations is injustice to developing nations like the Philippines that demand for climate justice and to the world climate movement who have lost a staunch fighter in this battle against climate change.
We are in a war against climate change. In our battles, we want leaders who can walk their talk and not lame politicians who will render lip service. We want public servants who will fight with us till the last breath.
We want #YebinLima because the Filipino people deserve a representative that speaks for the voiceless and powerless marginalized sectors whose lives are being affected by the impacts of climate change.
The history of our nation has long been paved with leaders that betrayed the interest of the revolution. We refuse to accept a future that another revolution will be betrayed.
It is time we #SwitchThePower to the hands of the people and make our government accountable to its every action.
This is the first battle in our war against climate change but we vow to win in this #ClimateRevolution.
