Not Done Yet

Not Done Yet
The Copenhagen climate summit has ended without the fair, ambitious and legally binding agreement that millions of citizens around the work demanded.

More than 120 world leaders who gathered in Copenhagen have been unable to resolve the issues blocking the road towards a just outcome, leaving the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people at greater risk of losing their homes, health and livelihoods as a result of climate change.

Even so, it is impossible to be without hope. A movement touching millions of people in hundreds of countries around the world has grown, because civil society has cooperated on this issue as never before.

More than 250 organisations, including Amnesty International, came together to form an unprecedented alliance under the TckTckTck banner. Three days of global action broke records on climate demonstrations, and this global movement - perhaps the most diverse ever seen - stands united.  

Millions of people around the world look to the future and see hope, justice, and opportunity. They will continue to speak out to get the real deal that the world needs in 2010. The most marginalized and vulnerable people need to be heard by leaders if a climate deal is going to meet their needs.

The many challenges presented along the path have been met by a surge of people from all around the globe who have demanded and will continue to demand a real deal.

The world’s leaders still have a chance to get it right. They must realize that the world expects this and will not accept anything less.

They’re not done yet. Neither are we.
