Echec et victoire à Copenhague (avec audio)

Pour nous, qui sont revenus de Copenhagen pleins d’espoir et d’énergie, c’était étrange de se rendre compte que beaucoup de ceux et celles qui ont suivi l’affaire de loin l’on vécu comme une catastrophe. Pourtant, c’était évident depuis un moment qu’il y aurait « au mieux » un accord sur de fausses (quoique très profitables) solutions. Les analystes critiques, comme des savants de pointe comme James Hansen, disaient déjà que No Deal serait mieux que leur Bad Deal. Finalement le deal proposé était si mauvais qu’il était impossible de l’imposer (le soi-disant Accord de Copenhague n’a pas été accepté par toutes les parties).

Dégoûtés par la cupidité et irresponsabilité totale des puissants, beaucoup ne se rendent pas compte que cette farce tragique – et l’action unitaire de différents réseaux de base – a ouvert un nouvel espace politique dans lequel de vraies solutions ont une chance. Alors que j’écris, arrive l’invitation de Evo Morales à un sommet mondial des mouvements sociaux sur le changement climatique. L’espace grandit. Comme disait un des slogans à Copenhague « Who’s summit ? Our summit ! »

LEADERS FROM THE SOUTH PROTEST AGAINST WWF INTERNATIONAL

LEADERS FROM THE SOUTH PROTEST AGAINST WWF INTERNATIONAL

(Audio recording from the protest found at RADIO 4 ALL – Languages : French, English, Spanish, Portugese – 34mns)

In front of the international head quarters of WWF (World Wildlife Fund) in Gland-Geneva, participants of the Social and Climate Justice Caravan made their first protest action. Delegates from farming organisations, indigenous and fisher folk from the South denounced the greenwashing carried out by WWF in their respective countries.

The participants of the caravan unfurled banners and protested in front of the surprised directors of the WWF. With a megaphone they began a large litany of the many cases where the WWF have ignored the wishes and the needs of the local people with their objective to “conserve” the natural world.
