The head of the Barbados Labor Party (BLP) stated that multinational fossil fuel companies “have known for a long time what the consequences of their actions would be” when referring to the lack of technology to limit emissions.

“They must take responsibility. We cannot move forward without the commitment of oil and gas companies. We have to stop talking about it and just make sure that these types of conversations take place,” he noted.

In this sense, Mottley stressed that the actions of these companies are “supported” by a group of financial, insurance and transportation institutions that “are invisible to the transactions and activities that cause the problems.”

“We have been seeing for 50 years the absolute dominance of capitalist markets that has led to a consolidation of wealth (…) we cannot continue putting the interest of a few above the lives of many,” he added.

In turn, the premier recalled that, although the Trust Fund for Resilience and Sustainability was adopted, more than 60 countries “are on death row due to debt and have to choose between development and creating resilience to confront the climate crisis.”

Likewise, Mottley confirmed that reparatory justice is “a solemn obligation” while emphasizing the importance of conversations about it being carried out under conditions of equality and not being understood as “an act of charity by those who want to clear their conscience.” .
