To Reclaim Our Future, We Must Change the Present. Our Proposal for Changing the System and not the Climate

To Reclaim Our Future, We Must Change the Present.  Our Proposal for Changing the System and not the Climate | Another World Now! | Scoop.it

The capitalist system has exploited and abused nature, pushing the planet to its limits, so much so that the system has accelerated dangerous and fundamental changes in the climate.

Today, the severity and multiplicity of weather changes – characterized by droughts, desertification, floods, hurricanes, typhoons, forest fires and the melting of glaciers and sea ice – indicate that the planet is burning. These extreme changes have direct impacts on humans through the loss lives, livelihoods, crops and homes all of which have led to human displacement in the form of forced migration and climate refugees on a massive an unprecedented scale.

Humanity and nature are now standing at a precipice. We can stand idle and continue the march into an abysmal future too dire to imagine, or we can take action and reclaim a future that we have all hoped for.

We will not stand idle. We will not allow the capitalist system to burn us all. We will take action and address the root causes of climate change by changing the system. The time has come to stop talking and to take action.

We must nurture, support, strengthen and increase the scale of grassroots organizing in all places, but in particular in frontline battlegrounds where the stakes are the highest.

 

System Change means:

Join the process to organise an International Skillshare in London

Join the process to organise an International Skillshare in London | Another World Now! | Scoop.it

The next G8 summit will be on the 17th & 18th of June in the UK, in Northern Ireland. Given the remoteness of the location, the stopG8 network has called for a week of mobilisation in London from the 10th to the 14th of June.


A few of us who have been involved in Occupy in London and in the related international networks believe that this could be a great opportunity for us not only to converge for a mass action, but also to come together to share the many skills we have gained and lessons we have learnt in the past two years in our respective countries. Through this we hope to establish common grounds that can strengthen our movements in the future both locally and globally.

From the World Social Foru to the Arab Revolts | The Bullet - Socialist Project

From the World Social Foru to the Arab Revolts | The Bullet - Socialist Project | Another World Now! | Scoop.it

Tunisia, cradle of the revolts in the Arab world, hosts from today [26 March] and until Saturday the World Social Forum (WSF), the most important international meeting of social movements and organizations. And this is not by chance. The promoters of the WSF chose this country in reference to the ‘Arab Spring.’ The latter has not only given rise to new movements of opposition in North Africa and the Middle East, but has also ‘contaminated’ the south of Europe, in particular with the movement of the indignant in the Spanish State, as well as the Occupy movement in the United States.

Vou insistir
A mãe manda que os porquinhos partar e construam
Apenas um fortifica, a palha e a madeira não dominaram o lobo (povo)>e retiraram a católica das guerras de deus
EUA é o solo que planta soldados para mantê-la magistral no domínio de colõnias e as indiretamente colonizadas pelas grandes corporações mundiais. >protestantismo capitalista
Manter forte a resistência ocupação/fórum em EUA até que a população compreenda que seu povo vive o título de grande nação(superpotência) às custas da mortandade mundial e seu exército mensageiro da morte - assim como a Inglaterra detentora de 54 colônias, não poderá mais usurpara deste mundo, tamanha riqueza, tornando livre neste século as 54 colônias
Sem as trpoas de EUA nunca haverá solo onde banqueiros negociem o ar que respiramos >genocídio de islamitas e mulçumanos
deus de adorasção à guerras,de sacrifícios de inocentes

Capital literally massacres the workers: Bangladesh factory building collapse, workers forced to stay and work.. Walmart and C&A kills nearly 1000 workers in one shut!

Networked Labour - One Big Meshwork's insight:

 

 

 

 

Mohammad Asaduzzaman, in charge of the area's police station, said factory owners appeared to have ignored a warning not to allow their workers into the building after a crack was detected in the block on Tuesday.

Five garment factories - employing mostly women - were housed in the building, including Ether Tex Ltd., whose chairman said he was unaware of any warnings not to open the workshops.

"There was some crack at the second floor, but my factory was on the fifth floor," Muhammad Anisur Rahman told Reuters. "The owner of the building told our floor manager that it is not a problem and so you can open the factory."

He initially said that his firm had been sub-contracted to supply Wal-Mart Stores Inc, the world's largest retailer, and Europe's C&A. In a subsequent interview he said he had been referring to an order in the past, not current work.

Occupy Your Workplace

Occupy Your Workplace | Another World Now! | Scoop.it

Towards a New Workers Movement - 

 

Across the world, workers are under attack by the 1%. Wages are at a historic low while unemployment remains stuck near a record high. Governments are attacking the poorest amongst us with brutal austerity plans. Unions are being destroyed, while autonomous workers’ movements meet with severe repression from Oakland, to Montreal, to Athens, and Cairo.

 

The power of the 1% is based on their control of the workplace. We need a new labor movement of the 99% to occupy the workplace and transform the economy, but the working class is divided – between union and non-union, immigrant and native-born, young and old, North and South, private sector and public sector; by national borders, race, language, creed, color, education, and industry.
