1000 cancuns – Barelona node + general commentry on where the “climate justice movement” might go…
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….)
I agree that the “climate justice movement” can really grow a lot in catalunya, as it is still only a small section of the wider “radical activist” world that exists here. decreixament, ester vives, el clima no esta en venda, repsol mata, can masdeu, transition are amongst the main actors in the scene at present, there is more.
were playing with ideas to organise the event, around nov 24 there is a big earth art project, that leads into the actual days for 1000 cancuns, nov 29 – december 10. the main day of action will be saturday 4th december. a day for us to be global-local, tuning in and listening to each other, talking together, building up the movement(s) together and building our world. we did connect with groups in bolivia during the COCHABAMBA peoples forum last april, which was a good step for us in barcelona. Ideally a great big free party with manu chao playing, after a day of LOCAL PEOPLES ASSEMBLIES, and some actions would be ideal (critical audio about these actions of communication and ideas of hope – Failure and Victory in Copenhagen (includes audio interview) )
we write to you, in hope that you can participate in this momentous event, if there is nothing yet in your part of the world, you can set 1 up, if there is anything going on, tell us. Soon we`ll be showing the rossport vids again here in barcelona, be nice to target a few shell stations in solidarity, like what they did in canada for the minga
ok dudes, festive pagan greetings of samhain to ye, hugs and kisses from this paddy who is now off to sleep to get ready for a big day tmrw…
