(en) [Spain] Madrid: Anarchist bloc against climate change, September 8 By ANA (ca, pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 12 Sep 2018 08:05:22 +0300


Saturday, September 8, at 7:00 p.m. >> Reina Sofía Museum Square, Madrid ---- Climate change is a product of industrial society born two centuries ago in Europe and violently imposed on the rest of the world. It was two centuries of continuous poisoning through all kinds of harmfulness that brought devastating consequences: deforestation, desertification, droughts, floods, famines, violent storms, extinction of millions of species ... In this situation there are many who seek a solution. ---- - Statist and leftist solutions: reforms that only lead to an intensification of misery beyond what we can imagine. The solutions of the leftists not only do not criticize the industrial society but place it in a privileged place in every process of change. Any solution to climate change has to emerge from its technologies, when we saw that it was the development of industrial or complex technologies that caused climate change, is the escape beyond the logic of the ideology of progress. Creating the illusion that there are technological shortcuts without taking into account the root causes of climate change: mainly the emission of greenhouse gases. One of these technological "solutions" is the manipulation of the climate through geoengineering, which poses great risks to ecosystems, since it is based on an excessive consumption of land, waters and other natural elements that some are striving to call resources. Those who see the solution in technology do not stop going blind: transgenics would end the hunger of the world ... green energy with contamination ... all this so that the techno-scientific system continues to work but increasing the misery of those who have to survive in it . They promote statists and leftists to regulate harmfulness, try to hide that regulating them is accepting their existence, promoting treaties that regulate the emission of greenhouse gases. It is a distraction maneuver. Reducing emissions means increasing the amount of gas but in a slower way. The climate changes depending on the amount of carbon or methane, not annual emissions, into the atmosphere; therefore reducing emissions continues to cause climate change.

- Green capitalism, social control and acceptance of living conditions: The climate crisis will not destroy capitalism, we will not face a collapse but a restructuring of living conditions. Industrial capitalism is adapting the end of the existence of fossil fuels and following their logic of efficiency and effectiveness has become green and ecological promoting and developing alternative energy sources so that the world can continue working exactly as it is now, the so-called green energy perpetuate existence of capitalism, and more, there are no green and / or clean energies in industrial society. Green energy continues to cause devastation from solar energy, whose silicon solar panels (whose extraction poisons areas near the mine with devastating consequences in the lives of those who populate nearby areas) to wind energy with the same materials happens exactly the same . Nothing is green in the industrial society, the production of cars (or any other industrial artifact) ecological creates hundreds of nuisances from the extraction of materials that form, the energy required for its operation, through the manufacturing process of the same, not to mention of the social relations that all this generates. The green world of green energy will lead us to the same nightmare that produced the "green revolution" of the last century.

Faced with the devastation that is causing climate change, Capitalism is developing measures of social control, since millions will flee from places where climate change will become uninhabitable. Europe is already protecting itself with numerous measures: from militarized borders, strict measures of internal security, biometric surveillance, DNA tests and a long, etc. All this is for the control and repression of those who have no place in the European fortress and those of its inhabitants who rebel against the imposed living conditions. It is then necessary to attack the root of the problem: the industrial organization of the world, the techno-scientific society and its world without delegating anything or anyone. Only then can we end a catastrophe that is already under way.

ANA note :

Next Saturday, September 8, 2018, there is an international mobilization called "Rise for Climate" to demand a world free of fossil fuels, where people and social justice are above profits. The protest is organized by several NGOs.
