Youth climate strikers and civil society organizations on Friday called on the Philippine government to hold major carbon emitters responsible as they march in Manila for climate justice. The march is part of the Global Climate Strikes Movement, which takes place ahead of the UN climate conference in Spain next week. Youth groups took to the streets in several other Philippine cities, including Davao, carrying a common message of justice for climate-impacted Filipino communities.

Ahead of the climate strikes, young Filipinos are also hopeful that the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) of the Philippines will release a favorable resolution on its investigation[1] into the responsibility of 47 of the world’s biggest investor-owned fossil fuel companies for human rights impacts resulting from climate change. The inquiry is the first of its kind in the world and its resolution is expected to become a precedent for future climate litigation in the Philippines and in other countries.
