ECVC: 25 November: International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women
On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, European Coordination Via Campesina would like to insist on the importance of ending all forms of violence against women.
It is fitting to remember the definition of violence adopted by the UN, which is: “any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life.”

Indian Coordination Committee of Farmers Movements
Bangalore, Nov-29- 2010
Sustainable agriculture Cools the Planet! System Change not Climate Change!
We Indian farmers movements under the banner of the ICCFM comprising of farmers organizations from all over India such as Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha (Karnataka), Bhartiya Kisan Union (North India), Thamizhaga Vivasayigal Sangam (Tamil Nadu) and Kerala Coconut Farmers Association (Kerala) are protesting on the occasion of the COP 16 climate negotiations of the UNFCC in Cancun, Mexico.
We stress that the climate negotiations have totally failed to bring about any real solution to the climate crisis and ever since the last UNFCCC meeting in Copenhagen it has become even more clear that any real change will only come from a peoples movement and not diplomatic negotiations.
