(en) [Spain] Climate crisis, economic crisis, representative democracy crisis By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 1 Oct 2019 09:30:58 +0300

It is difficult for us, the oppressed majority of the planet, to be able to stop the collapse we are witnessing, in such form and development, we dare not even venture. However, the "can't do anything" maxim doesn't fit. Being aware of the problem individually means reducing our consumption of oil and all its derivatives, meat, air travel, clothing, etc., etc. Facing it individually leads us to "live longer and better with less" by transforming our current model of life to date. This issue in our individual daily life is necessary nowadays, but it is insufficient, because the climate crisis is structurally and radically political. Being aware of what is at stake presupposes, above all, facing and fighting against a social system, the capitalist and the states in which we live,

Our duty as anarchists is directed, on the one hand, to extend to the population of the planet the idea that we should produce / consume only goods that satisfy the basic needs of the majority, while respecting the balance with ecosystems; in other words to raise awareness about the emergency we will live in the short term. This respect for the planetary biodiversity, the house in which we live, makes us express, on the other hand, the feeling that life is worth living, and we can achieve it only when we face the capitalist production system (Yes, they even want buy Greenland to extract its minerals!, yes they are burning the Amazon in search of fields that feed the meat we eat!, yes they are seeing real estate business on the melting of the Siberian pergelissolo!, etc., etc.), responsible for a seemingly unstoppable ecological disaster. States and international bodies, right now, in their public agendas, are planning partial and technical solutions to the so-called green capitalism (which is still a new business opportunity). These fake solutions from state and international parliaments are nothing more than patches that do not impact the real causes of the problem!

Presumably, however, on the hidden agenda of the highest capitalist institutions is the application of ecofascism as a tool for the ecological equilibrium of surviving humans (barbarism already manifested in population exodus to the rich north of hungry environmental refugees).

We need to prepare for the post-environmental collapse that will take place by organizing ourselves into communities based on de-commodified self-sufficiency, without social classes or private property, self-organized without state tutelage based on liberty, mutual support and carelessness and solidarity.

The battle is now, the time to take to the streets! We call for the mobilization on September 27th in Madrid, the WORLD STRIKE FOR CLIMATE.
