Date: December, 7
Event: LCSC – In planning stages. Blg march/rally
Event: Dec. 1: Reclaim our streets, cities, and education, hoping that will spark a movement within the city to do something on Dec. 7 on climate justice. Tossing around education piece but haven't come to a conclusion.
Possible joint action LCSC- Yuki (CBE) and Roxana (SAJE) around doing a joint action - in the process of figuring out if we can find a community garden space and do a speakout on specific struggles members are fighting for, how it relates to struggle for climate justice. Even though we don't work on food sovereignty directly, by doing it in space with urban garden, we can highlight the issue because it's one adaptation solution in the CJ struggle. Roxana: Another idea we had was to go to the refinery and making a call-out to our local government and state government to reducing emissions locally, having testimonies about how our folks have been impacted directly and connect internationally, really excited about having a combined action! know our struggles and bring them together so we can have an impact. One goal is to have members be exposed to each others' work, and second goal to have our folks see their struggle is connected to an international struggle for climate justice. Invite media and make the national demand calls too.

  • BARQUISIMENTO

Fecha: 7 de diciembre

Evento: Los Movimientos Sociales del ALBA del Edo. Lara convocan a una Caravana contra el sistema culpable del Cambio Climático, que tendrá lugar a partir de las 8am, desde la avenida 20 con calle 33 hasta la Gobernación del Estado Lara. Durante toda la jornada habrá música, teatro, títeres gigantes, intervenciones artísticas, y más. La caravana concluirá con la entrega de un documento a la gobernación, por un Estado que respete a la Madre Tierra. La Caravana será una de decenas de actividades que sucederán entre el 7 y el 10 de diciembre a nivel continental, como lucha articulada contra la 16va Conferencia de las Partes sobre Cambio Climático (COP16) convocada por las Naciones Unidas, la cual tendrá lugar en Cancún, edo. Quintana Roo, México. La COP16 viene capturando las miradas y expectativas de todo el mundo, después de una COP15 (Copenhagen, Dinamarca, diciembre 2009) que dejó mucho que desear en términos de acuerdos y compromisos concretos para el cuidado de la Madre Tierra.

Desde Barquisimeto, edo. Lara, los Movimientos Sociales del ALBA nos sumaremos entonces a las voces que, a nivel continental, gritan "Un Cancún, Muchos Cancún". Porque la declaración y el respeto de los Derechos de la Madre Tierra es impostergable, y porque un cambio en nuestro paradigma de producción y consumo es la única manera de asegurar un hábitat sano y sostenible para las generaciones futuras, "No Cambiemos el Clima, Cambiemos el Sistema".

  • BRIXTON, South London

Date: December 12

Event: We are organizing on this website - http://globaljusticebrixton.posterous.com/ - and through regular meetings locally.

Brixton responded to the world-wide call by global peasants organisation La Via Campesina for 'Thousands of Cancuns for Climate Justice' to mobilise grass roots solutions and actions. London, UK.  It was a small gathering that took place at Brixton Oval on a chilly winter afternoon, with an exhibition including posters from the Heathrow Climate Camp, several based on the book Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet by Mark Lynas and a poster produced by the local climate justice group group illustrating the global links between the war in Iraq, rainwater contaminated by Texaco/Chevron in the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador and a petrol station in Brixton displayed on the railing around the disused public toilets, unfortunately not restored in the recent bare, open and soulless refurbishment of Windrush Square.
