For 3 years, Rise for Climate Belgium have been organizing regular and sometimes massive climate mobilizations in Brussels to put pressure on the Belgian and European political world to enforce the Paris Agreement. and claiming:
A more restrictive European climate law Sign our petition here
The end of fossil fuel subsidies and the promotion of renewable energies. Drawdown 100 solutions to reverse climate change. Taxation of financial transactions to finance a Finance-Climate pact (more ambitious Green Deal) No to the Energy Charter Treaties and EU Mercosur
, Another European agricultural policy, The recognition of the ecocide for the Amazon …
We call on citizens’ movements and organizations around the world to demonstrate on this day in all the major cities of the planet at the opening of a decisive COP.
From the start of the COP, massive demonstrations are needed to directly put pressure on leaders around the world.
Note that on Saturday, November 6, a large demonstration will be held in Glasgow and also calls for decentralized actions. To keep the pressure constant, we also propose that these globally coordinated events continue at least on the first Sunday of each month. For this COP 26, we want a revolution in climate action so that all the solutions proposed for 30 years by scientists can be quickly applied.
Currently, according to the UN, 2.2 billion people do not have access to drinking water and 1.2 million die from it each year, 700 million suffer from hunger and 7 million die from it. By disrupting the water cycle, climate change will worsen this massacre. To prevent these water shortages and wars, we want water, the source of life, to be considered a common good of humanity and that access to this fundamental right be granted to the entire world population.
Finally, we want millions of jobs to be created to achieve this climate and water revolution
Since May, fires have unfortunately been resuming in the Amazon and already 2 months before the summer peaks.

This Treaty is clearly an encouragement to Bolsonaro’s policies and the destruction of the Amazon. With the support of movements from all over the world, we continue to demand an abandonment of this Treaty by the 27 Heads of State present in Brussels on June 24 and 25.
We also support the campaign
to include ecocide in European and international legislation and to be able to condemn governments or companies guilty of this type of environmental crime.
32 Hours for Climate
Climate change will once again be on the agenda of the European Council summit on May 24 and 25. During the two days of the summit, Rise for Climate Belgium has decided to organize 32 Hours for Climate, with the support of international activists from Fridays for Future and from the recent climate marches in France.
We recognize that significant advances in European climate policy have been achieved since we began our mobilization two years ago. But as long as the results of that policy are not tangible, we will continue to pressure European leaders to increase their efforts.
