Climate Change: From COP 15 to Climate Justice Movement
Given that COP 15 has failed and that climate change will be pivotal for years to come, how best to organize for climate justice?
Tonight's event will lay out in simple and understandable terms:
What is the Copenhagen Accord (or Discord)?
How does it contrast with the science demands?
What do other groups of nations, such as the G77, AOSIS and the EU, call for?
What actions worked and didn't work in CPH?
And what are our strategies for tackling climate change?
Come hear reports and participate in open discussion:
The Story of Cap and Trade - a 9-minute animated short that breaks down carbon trading will be shown.
Patrick Bond, climate justice activist, writer and director of the UKZN Centre for Civil Society in South Africa, will introduce the film.
Tina Gerhardt, activist, academic and free-lance journalist, wrote daily about events inside the Bella Center and demos and actions outside on the streets. Her work has appeared in Faultlines, San Francisco Bay Guardian, San Francisco Chronicle, In These Times and The Nation.com.
Antonio Gonzales, director AIM-West, attended the COP 15 in Copenhagen and advocated efforts to include indigenous concerns in the final text of the accord.
Followed by open discussion.
