"To put it simply, the state of the planet is broken," he says in a passionate, uncompromising speech delivered at Columbia University in New York.

"Solidarity is humanity," he says. "Solidarity is survival. That is the lesson of 2020. With the world in disunity and disarray trying to contain the pandemic, let's learn the lesson and change course for the pivotal period ahead."
