Today on Sojourner Truth, a report from Anne Petermann, Executive Director of the Global Justice Ecology Project (GJEP). She is on the ground in Chile. The GJEP team has been reporting on ongoing protests in Chile and now the alternative environmental event that began on Monday, known as the Cumbre de los Pueblos (the People's Summit). That event will last 10 days and will coincide with the official UN COP 25 environmental conference that was moved from Chile, where it was originally scheduled, by Chile's embattled president. COP 25 is now taking place in Spain. Meanwhile, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, who has sparked worldwide protests by junior high and high school students, has arrived in Spain for that conference via sailboat. On the ground in Chile, people from across the country in Chile have gathered in Santiago for the Cumbre de los Pueblos. This, as the UN chief yet again warns of a climate crisis deep enough that the planet is close to no return.
