CALL TO ACTION OCTOBER 12
Join the Global Day of Action for Climate Justice: Change the System, not the Climate!
Following the lead of indigenous peoples' and peasants movements from around the globe, GGJ calls on its members and allies to take part in the international day of action for Climate Justice, the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and Mother Earth on October 12.
Within GGJ we've made the commitment to increase our own education on the politics of climate change disruption and the need for climate justice. At our February membership assembly and again at our September coordinating committee, GGJ members and leaders decided to make climate justice work a priority for our alliance, and to engage in both education and collective action toward this goal.
“El tercer golpe de estado se está llevando a cabo en contra de un miembro nacional de la Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América (ALBA), un bloque latinoamericano de naciones que se opone a la hegemonía de los EE.UU. en la región y ha creado nuevos mecanismos para el comercio y principios de integración fundamentados en la solidaridad e independencia de poderes imperiales.” – Eva Golinger

“A third coup d’etat is underway against a nation member of the Bolivarian Alliance of the Americas (ALBA), a Latin American bloc of nations that opposes US hegemony in the region and has created new mechanisms for trade and integration based on principles of solidarity and independence from imperial powers.” – Eva Golinger
To the Honourable Ambassador of the Republic of Korea,
Our alliance is made up of thousands of conscientious residents of the United States and Puerto Rico,
with international relationships throughout Canada, Latin America, Asia and Africa.
We are writing to urge that the South Korean government uphold the human rights of your residents and of all those who will be exercising their democratic rights to protest the 5th G20 Summit, which will be held in Seoul, South Korea from November 11 to 12.
From Justin Flores, FLOC organizer to all GGJ members:
"We are hoping to get small (or large) groups of supporters who are willing to do actions in front of Chase banks once a month at various branches until the issue is dealt with. We recently got a pledge from UAW president Bob King to leverage the international's 300 million plus funds currently with Chase! I am sure they will be taking this seriously very soon."
The United States Social Forum II in Detroit, in the Peoples Movement Assembly process approved a resolution at the Puerto Rico PMA and at the National People Movement Assembly, making September 23, 2010 a national and international day of solidarity with the self determination of the people of Puerto Rico and demanding immediate de-colonialization of Puerto Rico by the United States.
