No Government Will Save the Planet for Us

  •       From September 20 to 27, tens of thousands will take to the streets to denounce the causes of climate change and call on governments to address what may be the most drastic crisis facing humanity in the 21st century.

These mass actions will showcase the growing anger of a new generation that has known nothing but crisis, war, and the threat of environmental collapse.

 

We have prepared the following text as a flier encouraging climate activists to consider how to interrupt the causes of climate change via direct action rather than petitioning the state to do solve the problem for us. Please print these out and distribute them at climate protests and everywhere else you can. Continue reading “The Wrong ICE is Melting, The Wrong Amazon is Burning”

CGT Anarchist Union Joins the World Climate General Strike Sept. 27th

The General Confederation of Labor (CGT) has shown its support for the World Strike for Climate day by joining it in defense of the planet on September 27, 2019.

 On this day of struggle, convened by groups and organizations throughout the State, governments will be required to immediately declare a climatic emergency and take urgent and concrete measures aimed at reducing greenhouse gases.

More than 50 organizations urge citizens to support this strike day in defense of the planet and call a student and consumer strike in the Spanish State.

 

In this sense, organizations raise the need to adopt a new socio-ecological model “that does not compromise life as we know it”, since more than one million species (animals and plants) are on the verge of extinction as a consequence of human activity

Similarly, rising temperatures are also worrisome and will have catastrophic consequences for present and future generations due to sea level rise, more intense and prolonged heat waves, droughts, lack of drinking water, etc.

The signatory organizations of the Alliance for Climate Emergency remind state rulers of the responsibility they have in front of different institutions, so they insist that the fight for the climate emergency must encompass all people.

From CGT, a call has been made to the whole society to support this day of World Strike for Climate and urges to participate in all the events organized for this day throughout the Spanish State.

CGT se suma a la Huelga Mundial por el Clima el próximo 27 de septiembre

Gabinete de prensa del Comité Confederal de la CGT

La Confederación General del Trabajo (CGT) ha mostrado su apoyo a la jornada de Huelga Mundial por el Clima sumándose a la misma en defensa del planeta el próximo 27 de septiembre de 2019.

En esta jornada de lucha, convocada por colectivos y organizaciones de todo el Estado, se exigirá a los Gobiernos la declaración inmediata de la emergencia climática y la adopción de medidas urgentes y concretas encaminadas a la reducción de gases de efecto invernadero.

En este sentido, las organizaciones plantean la necesidad de adoptar un nuevo modelo socioecológico “que no comprometa la vida tal y como la conocemos”, puesto que más de un millón de especies (animales y plantas) están al borde de la extinción como consecuencia de la actividad humana.

De igual modo, el aumento de las temperaturas es también preocupante y tendrá consecuencias catastróficas para generaciones presentes y futuras por el aumento del nivel del mar, olas de calor más intensas y prologadas, sequías, falta de agua potable, etc.

Las organizaciones firmantes de la Alianza por la Emergencia Climática recuerdan a los gobernantes de los Estados la responsabilidad que tienen al frente de distintas instituciones, por eso insisten en que la lucha por la emergencia climática debe englobar a todas las personas.

Desde CGT se ha realizado un llamamiento a toda la sociedad para que secunde esta jornada de Huelga Mundial por el Clima e insta a participar en todos los actos organizados para este día en todo el Estado español

“The Fire is Catching”: Fierce and Spreading Opposition to Fracked Gas Pipelines in the Virginias

Walking The Line: On the Frontlines Against the Pipelines

via It’s Going Down  ..  The following report details the growing struggle against the Mountain Valley Pipeline on the Virginia and West Virginia border. In the Jefferson National Forest a line is being drawn.

If you turn North from highway 460 on the border of Virginia and West Virginia onto US 641, stay right at the fork, and stop with Pocahontas Rd on your left, you will run right into it. It’s a little gravel road that winds back into the mountain all the way to the AT. On it, a garrison of Forest Service trucks, state police, and private security idle their engines, enforcing the line.

On December 28, 2017 a line was drawn when Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC obtained authorization to construct a 42 inch pipeline through the forest. The proposed channel would conduct fracked natural gas and disturb many communities opposed to the project and to natural gas infrastructure.

The Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) is a proposed 42-inch interstate fracked gas pipeline to run 303 miles from north-western West Virginia to south central Virginia. The project is budgeted at USD 3.5 billion. The MVP would enable significantly more gas to be shipped, which means significantly more gas can be extracted using fracking techniques in the Marcellus shale region.
