"We demand a just transition that prioritises social justice; establishes reparations and remediation led by and for Black people, people of colour, minority, poor and vulnerable communities for decades of environmental injustice, establishes legal rights for ecosystems to thrive and regenerate, and repair the effects of ongoing ecocide in order to maintain a liveable, just planet for all."
