Mother Earth is mic-checking US.
THANK YOU to those there speaking out for climate justice!
The people united will never be defeated.
World Bank out of climate finance!
The fact is that climate justice is the farthest thing from the minds of industrialized nations in putting together a climate pact that resembles anything regarding true climate justice and moral courage. Greed, selfishness, geopolitics, intolerance ( yes I can believe a part of this is based on just not wanting to help people of color along with the poor and women) all things that have rotted the governments of these nations to their core. And Americans, our government is one of them. This government and this administration along with others have failed future generations on a huge scale by continuing to serve the status quo that now sees our planet teetering on the edge.
Instead of progress, we get obstruction. Instead of solutions, we get deception. Instead of food sovereignty and recognizing the Rights of Mother Earth, we get MONSANTO and BP. Instead of respecting the science, we get political rhetoric delivered by those so far removed from the reality of what climate change is doing to those who had nothing to do with making it. There is no other way any more to say this. The planet is warming. The effects are real. They are affecting our ability to provide food, water, and sound social structures to MILLIONS of people globally, with climate migration not some distant delusion but a present humanitarian crisis.
When you have the people relegated to the streets and arrested for seeking merely to be able to survive, you know who really runs this show. This is the epitome of what OWS is about. The environmental effects of the actions of the 1% have now insured us that the world our chldren and grandchildren will live in will be unlike the world we pictured and lived in.They are not on the side of working for real solutions that bring justice and equality that in turn brings food sovereignty, clean water, social justice and respect for the processes of our planet that we must now work with in order for our species to survive.They are climate criminals intent on using this crisis for their own profit at the expense of all of us as this is killing people and will kill Africa and many others in this world if allowed to go unchecked any longer.
Therefore, I stress again my belief that they should all be held accused of human rights abuses and abuses against Mother Earth and dealt with accordingly and the people must now take into their hands the work they refuse to do. Our survival depends on us. If anything this will hopefully inspire more people to see the truth and to understand this is a real and present danger to our continued survival. It's time to GET IT DONE.
To Kill A Continent
Article that hits the nail on the head about the mechanisms involved in the schemes being put forth by industrialized nations, the World Bank and other entities in looking to use this planetary emergency as a way to profit from it without really doing anything to address it. And that includes our water.
