In case you missed it, last week was the #OurLandOurNature alternative congress, which finished on Friday with a #protest in Marseille, France, where we were joined by a number of other orgs including @xrFrance, @amisdelaterre & @yfcmarseille.

Despite the torrential rain ⛈️ the turn out was big, showing how strong the resistance is towards the false solutions to tackle #ClimateChange being proposed at the #IUCNcongress.

The plan to turn 30% of the world into Protected Areas by 2030 (30x30) is a distraction from the real causes of #environmental destruction - instead it puts a price on #nature & allows big business to profit.

(1/6) Ce qu’a dit le Président de la République hier à l’#IUCNcongress (qui ne doit pas se résumer en un tweet) ⤵️
1. La question des pesticides doit désormais être portée au niveau européen.

Nous sommes dans un marché commun, donc cette question doit être européenne ! Sinon, nous créons juste de la compétition déloyale, sur le dos de notre agriculture et de notre environnement !
2. Notre position est toujours la même : « pas d’interdiction sans alternative ».

Restons pragmatiques et souverains.

Cela nécessite que notre recherche puisse avoir les moyens de travailler, ce que nous renforçons sans relâche.

This is certainly some big #news from the #IUCNcongress today, with the release of their latest ratings of tunas, sharks, rays, and other species. @IUCNRedList is hoping to soften the concerning news about sharks and rays with better tuna news but... 1/
Some of the new ratings mask serious concerns with unique populations of yellowfin and Atlantic #bluefin. Concerns that are substantial enough that I (a tuna conservationist - yes that is a thing!) am having trouble celebrating. 2/
To be clear, the tuna team did not really get things wrong. The issue is that the IUCN standard requires experts to examine population trends and status at the species level, meaning a genetically distinct population could be crashing, while the species is doing ok. 3/
