(en) Mexico City, Schedule of the Climate Justice Dialogue & anti-G8 Convergence - Sept 29 to Oct 4!

Date Sat, 30 Sep 2006 10:39:34 +0300

Schedule of the Climate Justice Dialogue and Convergence
Alternative climate activities to the G8+5 Climate Summit
Friday, September 29 to Wednesday, October 4, 2006 in Mexico City!
From September 29th to October 4th, 2006, in solidarity with world-wide
voices proclaiming climate justice, join different Mexico City collectives
and groups participating in the Climate Justice Dialogue and Convergence!
This week features educational, cultural and political forums and events
culminating Tuesday and Wednesday, October 3 and 4 with days of popular
dialogue and action to advocate alternatives and demonstrate opposition
against the ministerial meeting of the G8+5 countries and their official
"Gleneagles Dialogue on Climate Change." The countries of the G8
(United States, England, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and
Russia) and the "plus 5" (Mexico, Brazil, the South Africa, India, and
China) are meeting to negotiate the expansion of the "carbon market" and
"commerce of carbon credits" - in other words, the sale of the atmosphere
and legalization of the right to continue polluting the Earth's climate! The
G8+5 countries are denying scientific warnings and the global call of people
demanding immediate action to stop global warming and protect Earth's
fragile climate by reducing our human consumption of fossil fuels. For the
benefit of the interests of their own economies and to maintain their high
level of consumption of hydrocarbons, the G8+5 countries are sacrificing
the world!

National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) - a venue of the

and 5.

Organized by: OkupaChe - MareaCeciente / Rising Tide NA - Colectivo
Autonomo Magonista* - Caravana Libertaria Carlo Guliani*


* The Colectivo Autonomo Magonista (Autonomous Magonista Collective) talked
about what they want to do in terms of building an analysis of different
libertarian movements, building a movement nationally and internationally,
building a clear vision about a libertarian movement, having self-criticism
on our mistakes, and looking at history and learning from it (Magonismo,
Federacion Anarquista Mexicana / Mexican Anarchist Federation, the 1980s
the student struggles and anarco-punks in Mexico), and building an organization
that is able to coordinate with different collectives. The Colectivo Autonomo
Magonista (CAMA) says that anarchism doesnt just exist in one sector, it exists
in all sectors, "We dont just have to build an anarco-punk scene, we can rebuild
anarcho-syndicalism in Mexico". A woman who worked with Indy Media Center in
Mexico talked about how anarchism is a way of life, "it's an analysis, and it's
not a lifestyle". "For some, when the state becomes too real for them, and they
suffer repression, they go home". She said that the libertarian movement has to
have a function; it has to act within the social movements, and organize in a
broader way so we can be stronger.
