Daves Diary – SYSTEM CHANGE NOT CLIMATE CHANGE – the journey from WTO @ Geneva to COP15 @ Copenhagen

There are some things that happen that make us good to be alive, even in these times of fear and greed. The Trade to Climate Caravan is one of those moments. People have come from around the world from the worst of environmental and social situations to demand and claim a better world save our planet from those that wish to profit out of the death of the biosphere.

We have learned about and shared important struggles that shine a light on our collective dignity. We make tell each other about not only of our resistance but of our hopes and movements and dreams of a better place.

This is more than a friendship but borne of political solidarity, labour and land ownership, climate justice, the exploitation of the south by the north, even knowing that you can find pockets of the south in the north and the north in the south. It is a world out of balance where absurdity passes for logic and the cry of humanity and mother earth is ignored at best, and people are shot and disappear at worst.

We have invitations and choices to fight for our humanity and planet in these times. There is no middle ground. We will defy them. We will build our links and resistance and polish them with deep respect and commitment to our diversity and our common bonds.

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.
