In the Arctic where the Sámi people live (an Indigenous people in northern Europe) — the temperature has already risen by 1,5 degrees. If we don’t manage to stop global warming and if climate change is allowed to continue, it will have cathastrophic effect on all of us. We are fighting for a future without mining and any more large-scale exploitation and short-term thinking. We are concerned for our children and for future generations.
Please share and feel free to show it at your different meetings. Help us connect Ume River and Dearna to Run for your life and #cop21 #wespeakearth
