Activist Vanessa Nakate Gives an Optimistic View in Climate Speech

Speaking in front of thousands of climate protesters in Glasgow, Ms. Nakate emphasized the impact of global warming in Africa, while painting a hopeful picture of what the future could hold if leaders are held accountable for climate change.

Floods are ravaging different parts of Kampala, different parts of Uganda and across the African continent. Historically, Africa is responsible for only 3 percent of global emissions, and yet Africans are suffering some of the most brutal impacts fueled by the climate crisis. Once flooded, places will dry and bloom again. There is triumph in the city, because the power of the people finally won. The world is green again. Nature has been restored. The planet and creation is respected. Another world is necessary, another world is possible, and this is just a glimpse of it. And today we shall continue to fight on in every way we can. We cannot give up now. We need to continue holding leaders accountable for their actions. We cannot keep quiet about climate injustice. Your actions matter. No action is too small to make a difference, and no voice is too small to make a difference. Let us keep the faith for the future, which faith will give us the hope for the world not yet seen, but the world that we can imagine.
