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 !

Indigenous communities are our climate heroes! Jangan rampas tanah adat! #HutanPergiMana

HAP NAA, Jangan rampas hak orang asli untuk masa depan yang bermaruah dan selamat.

Now is the time for the youth to lead on climate action. You lift yourself when you empower others! #YangMudaMemimpin

Malaysia must build back better. There is no climate justice without social justice and gender justice.

Give us the status of the Malaysian Climate Change Act and the National Adaptation Plan, will the people and most vulnerable communities be consulted?

We have failed in facing the Covid-19 pandemic shock. Are we to believe that this current system will prepare us for severe climate impacts in the next ten years, & pave the way for a safer & low carbon Malaysia? Get serious on #JustRecovery.

Our universities are not ready to shift and prepare our youth for the warming climate. Our education system needs a transformational change to build a society that respects each other, resilient, rooted in inclusivity and diversity.

The COVID crisis is catastrophic and immediate, and climate change is a threat multiplier according to the United Nations – both are humanity existential threats. Demand Malaysian politicians to address these issues seriously

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).

Low-key diplomacy won’t cut it anymore. We need to put the Transboundary Haze Pollution Act back on the agenda! #EnviroRights

Put the Transboundary Haze Pollution Act back on the agenda! Are we going to let #SyarikatJerebu continue threatening our lives every year?

@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

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!

Pressure Selangor ADUN/MP to state their stand on KLNFR publicly! Elected representatives of the people must hear to the people’s call! Email/call your ADUN/MP!

Dear Selangor ADUNs/MP, we don’t want to emit 5.5 million tonnes of carbon. We have the obligation under Paris Agreement to reduce emissions, not increase emissions!

Defend the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve! Defend Orang Asli rights to self-govern! Defend our natural barrier against climate impacts from being degazetted!

 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.

 MALAYSIAN CALL 

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. The Covid-19 pandemic and climate crisis are similar in that they are both global threats that carry catastrophic risks if we fail to address and recognize. Both crises demand all sectors of society to respond and cooperate. The impacts widen the social inequalities and disproportionately affects the vulnerable demographic such as women, girls and children and marginalized communities. The COVID crisis is catastrophic and immediate, and climate change is a threat multiplier according to the United Nations -- both humanity existential threats. We have seen that the current system has failed in facing shocks such as the Covid-19 pandemic. Are we to believe that this current system will prepare us for severe climate impacts in the next ten years, and pave the way for a safer and low carbon Malaysia?

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.

Malaysian demand

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 :


  1. Take serious Climate Action NOW
  2. Defend environmental defenders and uphold people's democracy
  3. Create policies for the people and planet
  4. Demand ambition, collaboration, & accountability
  5. Push towards a just recovery
