Press Release - La Via Campesina
"We will unmask the Mexican Government: Gomez"
(Ciudad de México, November 28th) «The sixth Conference of Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 16) is already seen as a failure that will affect the future of humanity, as its only result will be to strenghthen the intention of TNCs to divert money away from the climate crisis» stated Alberto Gomez from La Via Campesina international coordination.
«During the last moments of discussion, the proposals of the People's Agreement signed in Cochabamba have been left aside. The trend is to favour carbon market and REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation), this mechanism supports global privatisation of forests, jungles and territories.» explained Gomez.

There are Alternative Solutions to Climate Change!
More than 25 coordinated grassroots events planned across the U.S. and Canada, part of 1000 Cancuns Global Day of Action for Climate Justice
WHAT: On December 7, with the UN Climate Change Negotiations in Cancun approaching
an end, grassroots organizations across the world will be taking the future of the planet into
their own hands. More than 25 coordinated events will take place in the U.S. and Canada as
part of La Vía Campesina’s call for 1000 Cancuns for climate justice worldwide. All of the
actions will have one common goal: to oppose carbon market schemes that prolong our addiction to fossil fuels, and to lift up local solutions that are already reducing greenhouse gas emissions and cooling our planet.
