Video: Naomi Klein and Jeremy Corbyn call for climate jobs

Last night in Paris Jeremy Corbyn and Naomi Klein spoke to 800 people about trade unions and climate change, writes Jonathan Neale

For me, the best moment was when Jeremy started his speech by saying “I want to hold this document up. It’s called One Million Climate Jobs.”

The meeting was sponsored by Trade Unions for Energy Democracy and the Global Climate Jobs Campaigns.

This video from the ever wonderful Reelnews is 15 minutes of highlights of the meeting. From 8.56 to 12.40 you can hear Jeremy Corbyn, Clara Paillard of the climate jobs campaign in the UK, and Josua Mata of the climate jobs campaign in the Philippines, talking about climate jobs. And from 14.20 on is Jeremy’s powerful summing up.
