1000 cancuns – Barelona node + general commentry on where the “climate justice movement” might go…

HEY DUDERS, hope ye are all well, wherever ye are in this strange planet.

just watched eamons film again, Under pressure, great stuff, a lot of ideas buzzing about stuff to do to assist the struggle in ireland against shell. GOOD vid from the guardian about the situation and theworsening of things with “men in masks” giving beatings to pacifist farmer willie corduff as well as mad connections with attempts at coup de etats in bolivia…

Were setting up a barcelona node to participate in the call from la via campesina for 1000 cancuns, see info on that below. Brixton in london will also have a node – Cancun in Brixton | 1000 Solutions | Cop -16 . the idea is to have stuff on for the days leading up to and during the COP16 in cancun; space to come and learn whats going on, to talk about how to make things more sustainable and just here in our local world, barcelona, catalunya, spain, europe..  also hopefully there will be much talks, at varying scales, about what we can do both globally and locally to sort the shit, hopefully much non violent direct action to “be the change that you seek in the world” as NVDA guru gandhi put it. Great vid about how direct action got results in shutting down kingsnorht but then winning in the courts, a must see for anyone interested in “climate justice”.we had a very very good initial talk this evening to get things going here for the barcelona node during 1000 cancuns, with some of the founders of the 350 campaign, and related campaign groups. also have had much talks and proposals made to many latin american networks here in the city, around the hub of the squatted social centre on the rambla, barrilonia, who put on cracking parties every week, sometimes with the excellent chilean folk collective aukan collectivo

so, i write to some of you, in the hope that, together, we can build on the foundations we have, dream bigger, have hope we will win, then do the work to realize our dreams (todos somos buddhas….)

System Change. Not Climate Change!!! Minga Global 2010

(This article originally appeared in Spanish here)

Minga Global: In every corner of the planet, those of us who want to save the life are raising our voices against capitalist aggression expressed in the looting and the commodification of life. Because we know that other worlds are not only urgent: they are, above all, possible. And we are building them.

System Change not Climate Change! Taking direct action for climate justice

Climate Justice  Action (CJA): In 2009, indigenous peoples throughout the world called for a global mobilisation ‘In defence of mother earth’ on October 12, reclaiming the day that used to be imposed as ‘Columbus Day’. Responding to this call, and the demand for a day of action for ‘system change, not climate change’ issued by the global movements gathered in Copenhagen last year, Climate Justice Action is proposing a day of direct action for climate justice on October 12, 2010.
