Philippines: Climate Focus - Time to act is now on energy transformation

What could possibly be so urgent and life-threatening to drive leaders of people from a small and barely reachable island off the coast of Mindoro to leave their homes and travel 285 kilometers by land and sea over the period of five days just to reach Metro Manila? On November 27, a day before the biggest climate justice march in the country, they have reach the Presidential Palace.

Philippines: Unions decry deceptive, vague ‘labor agenda’ of APEC

ORGANIZED workers sneered at the so-called labor agenda in the upcoming Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Manila next month by describing it as deceptive and vague, which merely reaffirms APEC’s ideology based on the primacy of corporate power and profits over labor and trade union rights.

Trade unionists belonging to the national labor center Sentro ng mga Nagkakaisa at Progresibong Manggagawa (Sentro) joined today the broad-based and multisectoral People’s Forum on APEC (PFA 2015) in flocking to the Mendiola Bridge near Malacañang to banner the calls of “APEC kills workers’ and people’s rights.”

Despite finally including “labor concerns” among the four official priority agenda in the APEC Economic Leaders Meeting (AELM) on Nov. 18-19 under “Investing in Human Capital Development,” it remains a lame and ineffective attempt to muddle the plight of the workers and to appease their growing discontent, Josua Mata, Sentro secretary general, said.

Pakistan need to negotiate

Baloch national leader Nawab Brahumdagh Bugti has said in a recent statement that military operations in Balochistan have been intensified in every corner of Balochistan. He said Pakistani forces were abducting and killing innocent Baloch civilians after labelling them as terrorists which was a failed attempt to hide state atrocities against the Baloch nation and to pave the way for international companies & foreign countries particularly China to plunder the Baloch national wealth.

 

He said that the Pakistani forces started the Kill and Dump in 2010 which was being intensified with every passing moment. “The state forces have completely failed to deter the Baloch masses from the struggle for their rights and freedom”, he added.

No New Animal Testing Lab!

Join Don't Expand UW Primate Testing and Chattahoochee Earth First-- be a part of a National Day of Action against Skanska USA on December 8th with a protest at their Atlanta office!

Skanska USA is planning to build a new animal lab for the University of Washington and has office locations all over the U.S. -- so this day of action is a chance to show them that people all over the country are telling them to cut their contract with the UW and NOT build a new animal lab. This campaign is a rare opportunity to stop the torture of thousands of animals in a lab before the facility is even built, so we must all work together to tell Skanska USA that there will be NO NEW ANIMAL LAB!

Call Out for Mass Indefinite Occupation

Following the non-indictment of Officer Darren Wilson in the brutal murder of Michael Brown, and the non-indictment of officer Daniel Pantaleo in the filmed strangulation of Eric Garner, we are announcing a mass indefinite occupation of Woodruff Park this Saturday, December 6, at 7pm.

We have been spat in the face. We know that others share this grief and rage with us. We are calling for everyone to join us in a mass experiment involving taking space, coordinating resources, and sharing ideas to continue the fight against this present disaster. The fight against police violence cannot be allowed to slowly wither away. For this reason, we think it is necessary to create a space for continuous organizing and we believe an occupation can provide this.

We stand in solidarity with rebels in Ferguson, New York City, Mexico and everywhere else fighting against police violence.
