Help us lift the ban on Friends of the Earth at climate talks

Friends of the Earth International have been banned from the Bella Centre, where the official negotiations are taking place.

This has happened in a week where the UNFCCC have been clamping down on NGO and civil society access to the climate talks.

It looks like standing up for justice has upset those rich nations pushing for a weak and unfair deal.

No warning

Delegates from Friends of the Earth International turned up this morning to find that their passess had been barred without their knowledge.

Our organisations represent millions of people around the world and provide a critical voice on behalf of climate justice inside the UN.

Nnimmo Bassey, Friends of the Earth International Chair

We need you to tell Yvo de Boer, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, that this is a disgrace.

Civil society and NGO's have every right to attend these talks and seek a fair deal for all.
