Australia is the worst-performing country on climate change policy, according to a new international ranking of 57 countries. The report also criticises the Morrison government for being a “regressive force” internationally – The Guardian.

Pastor Ray Minniecon is part of the Indigenous Peoples Organisation Australia delegation at COP 26, which is highlighting environmental policies which are having a significant impact on  Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Despite the presence of the global indigenous community at all of the U.N. climate change gatherings – their voice still hasn’t been heard clearly at these forums!

Speaking on CAAMA Radio, Pastor  Minniecon says if his people want their own sovereignty recognized they may need to set up their own Tent Embassy in Egypt.
