Alec Baldwin was speaking at a UN panel in NYC on the subject of threats to forest defenders during an annual meeting on Tuesday.

The 61-year-old star opened up about his passion for preserving the planet and called for the public to make ‘certain sacrifices.’ 

‘I recognize – as does anyone that is paying attention that Indigenous Peoples across this planet are on the front lines of the fight to protect forests and deserve and need the support and protection of the international community,’ he said.

The SNL star added that his sole love for the planet wasn’t enough, with the rest of the United States needing to get on board in order to stop the ‘enslavement of Indigenous People.’

‘I’m an American, and I love my country. I’m very proud of my country but I also recognize that the United States is built on a core of building blocks and those are: political resources; friendly and manageable borders; hard work; innovation; ingenuity, but also slavery and the enslavement of Indigenous Peoples.’  

Alec called for the public to make ‘certain sacrifices’ if we want to see the planet thrive and help combat climate change.

He also insisted that he loves the UN because of its ‘permanent missions’ to make the world a better place.

‘There are things that we just can’t imagine that can happen in terms of the food supply, in terms of climate change, in terms of flooding in coastal areas in the United States and beyond. The time is now to make certain sacrifices … so that this planet will remain habitable for today’s children,’ he preached. 

‘My favorite thing about the UN is the word “permanence”, they have permanent missions and permanent forums. They’re the only ones who can say, “We’re here and we’re not going anywhere.” And I love the inevitability of that.’

Alec also took to his social media account to share an image of himself hosting the press conference.   

‘Many thanks to Charles McNeill and my colleagues at @unenvironment for asking me to host last night’s program at the UN. A large crowd of conferees talking about supporting the rights of indigenous people to protect their rain forest lands.
