Indigenous Rights for Climate Justice
Now is the time for the youth to lead on climate action. You lift yourself when you empower others! #YangMudaMemimpin
HAP NAA, Jangan rampas hak orang asli untuk masa depan yang bermaruah dan selamat.
Indigenous communities are our climate heroes! Jangan rampas tanah adat! #HutanPergiMana
Gender Justice for Climate Action
Women must lead! Increase political participation of women of decision making in climate policies.
Women have been the central in community-based education and organizing, especially in vulnerable groups striking collaborations with civil society groups. Translate this into feminist action for climate justice !
Just Recovery for Climate Action
For nearly 30 decades we lived through the annual transboundary haze. We have continuously failed to hold irresponsible stakeholders accountable. An imperfect law is better than no law! Bring back THPA!
@KASA_Malaysia has announced that the transboundary haze pollution act THPA has been shelved. Why are we going backwards? Where is our #EnviroRights as a private citizen to hold accountable Malaysian parties that have contributed to the transboundary haze? #TuntutKebenaran
Sign the petition by Greenpeace [ACT ON TRANSBOUNDARY HAZE]: https://act.greenpeace.org/page/65808/petition/1?locale=en-GB
Put the Transboundary Haze Pollution Act back on the agenda! Are we going to let #SyarikatJerebu continue threatening our lives every year?
Low-key diplomacy won’t cut it anymore. We need to put the Transboundary Haze Pollution Act back on the agenda! #EnviroRights

Review TOR to include more explicit protection functions to empower the AICHR—this is the ASEAN way. The Asean mechanism of cooperation must be improved by the establishment of the Asean Coordinating Centre for Transboundary Haze Pollution Control (ACCT-HPC).

Asia Climate Rally (ACR) Call To Action Livestream
Share this toolkit
Everyone has a different level of understanding of climate issues. Use this toolkit as a guideline to amplify climate action among your peers.
ASIA CLIMATE RALLY
From the 10/11/2020 until 28/11/2020, the Asia Climate Rally (ACR) campaign, run by youth climate strikers in Asia, will be held with one collective purpose; demand Asian governments, institutions, and corporations to take urgent climate actions during this pandemic. Klima Action Malaysia (KAMY) is the Malaysian arm of the Asia Climate Rally.
More than 9 countries in Asia including Malaysia will amplify the climate injustices in Asia during ACR to show that we, together, can organize, build resistance, and solidarity across borders.
Dear friends, campaigners and supporters, we have seen how the rakyat have coordinated and centralized aid and health efforts to each other during this pandemic. This camaraderie, or what we called as #RakyatJagaRakyat, gives us a glimpse into what the rakyat can do if we work together in the face of a crisis.
This camaraderie, or what we called as #RakyatJagaRakyat, gives us a glimpse into what the rakyat can do if we work together in the face of a crisis.
BUILD BACK BETTER
In the spirit of #RakyatJagaRakyat, KAMY is urging the civil society to put pressure on our MPs to debate for A JUST RECOVERY for the people and planet during the parliamentary session from November 2nd 2020 until December 2nd 2020. The tabling of the Budget 2021 which promises a “focus on sustainability agenda” has failed to make a serious address on the climate crisis. The Special Select Committee on Environment and Sustainability was dropped from the final list of select committees, as briefed by the Dewan Rakyat Speaker on 2nd November 2020.
INITIATE serious debate in the parliament for climate action.
Climate crisis and its policies will impact millions of Malaysians. Our elected members of parliament must address the climate crisis seriously and speak on behalf of the people. What is the current status of our Climate Change Act and National Council, and National Adaptation Plan?
BUILD an inclusive and equal partnership in climate solutions.
The aspirations of SDGs must embody the traits of inclusivity, diversity, and active partnership from citizens. Failure to do so would mean more people will fall through the cracks in policymaking.
DEMAND Just Recovery for the people based on principles of no harm and equity.
A people’s just recovery must be rooted in justice and inclusivity that rebuilds the people’s resilience, most of all, vulnerable groups. Stimulus packages must be channelled to workers, not shareholders nor big corporate executives. People and planet before profit.
ASIA collective demands
Asian climate strikers collectively demand our governments, the multinational corporations, banks and institutions in our respective countries to :
Take serious Climate Action NOW
Defend environmental defenders and uphold people's democracy
Create policies for the people and planet
Demand ambition, collaboration, & accountability
Push towards a just recovery
