Cop28 Cop28 officials fail to clarify if protesters are safe to protest in Dubai

Cop28 organisers and the UN body that oversees the annual climate conference have failed to clarify whether activists in Dubai are safe to demonstrate outside the conference area, putting civil society at risk in a country where protest is normally prohibited. At least 80,000 people are registered to attend the conference, including thousands of activists and members of civil society, who normally hold protests around the conference area.https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/dec/03/cop28-officials-fail-to-clarify-whether-protesters-will-be-safe-in-dubai

      Climate activists should be allowed to share their thought.

        @grace_njeri_804 true, climate defenders have a right to air their grievances.

        This is a major concern and a danger to the rights of climate change activists. Climate defenders must be protected and their grievances be heard.

            Urgent environmental and human rights concerns have to be addressed by the organisers so as to let the people be heard when they want to speak

              Silence around such crucial matters of picketing for a greater cause show lack of commitment right from the helm of the COP28 leadership. It is saddening

                This raises concerns about the fundamental right to peaceful protest. Transparency & assurances for demonstrators' safety are crucial.

                      @princess_nel_268 silence is dangerous since it could mean so many things and especially all the wrong reasons.
