Let's suethe state!

Aurora svarar staten!

Att staten har principiella invändningar mot stämningen är i sig inte anmärkningsvärt, men innehållet i deras yttrande är på vissa håll närmast oseriöst. Staten påstår att klimatkrisen är vag och abstrakt, att unga inte är en särskilt utsatt grupp, och utgår i sitt svar ifrån att de inte kommer att rätta sig efter en eventuell fällande dom. Läs oss i Aftonbladet för en mer ingående argumentation.

Aurora is a youth-led group that is now suing the Swedish government in a public court because they do not treat the climate crisis as a crisis.

The Swedish state does not treat the climate crisis as a crisis. They have set climate targets that exclude the majority of our emissions and which are far from ambitious enough for Sweden to do its fair share of the global emission reductions. And the inadequate climate targets are not even met.

Aurora states that for us children and young people, the rights to life, health and development guaranteed to us by Articles 2, 3, 8, 14 of the European Convention and Article 1 of the First Additional Protocol are endangered by the climate crisis. We in Aurora hold the state responsible for their lack of climate action. Through a court process, we are ensuring that the state respects human rights.

Court proceedings are unfortunately very expensive. We therefore need all the financial support we can get to be able to follow through with this process to completion. Feel free to donate to our fundraiser, and spread the word. Together we make the change we want to see!
