The WEF’s annual meeting brings together the main culprits of the climate catastrophe – companies, states, organisations that are to a great extent gambling with the Paris Climate Agreement, the goal of limiting global warming to a maximum of 2ºC and human lives.
The World Economic Forum, as an organisation linking stakeholders, has an undeniable responsibility for this crisis. They provide and participate in a platform that not only encourages but enables the spreading of lies, misinformation and mindless greenwashing. They create a culture in which ecology and climate friendliness become nothing more than a buzzword. They deliberately mislead society and politicise against a future worth living. Given the destructive power of the climate crisis already unleashed today, this is not justifiable.
We have had enough of empty promises, enough of green lies. We have had enough of people who accept the destruction of our livelihoods, enough of a system in which those who contribute least to the crisis suffer the most. We have had enough. Enough of the fairy tale of endless economic growth, of the inaction of those present at the WEF, enough of ‘business as usual’.
Yes. People who (1) do not adhere to the Climate Strike Code of Action, (2) pose a danger, or (3) attract attention for inappropriate behaviour will be excluded from the rally.
