Mission Statement: People, Planet, Peace over Profit!

The Global Climate Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit is an education and direct action campaign beginning this spring, with “10 days to change course,” running from Earth Day to May Day. It provides coordinated action and collaboration across fronts of struggle and national borders to harness the transformative power we already possess as a thousand separate movements.

    Yes yes yes, the impending global ecological collapse if “business as usual” is allowed to continue and profit-seeking corporations allowed to further there one-minded agenda has so much to do with the global fight for labor and human rights, for peace and cooperation between the peoples of the earth. The big profit-hungry corporations just don’t seem to get it: there is only ONE earth, ONE humanity and LIMITED resources. Either we learn to manage these TOGETHER and wisely, with a long-term, sustainable agenda, with generosity of heart, as sensible human beings, or we run ever faster to a global ecological and social collapse driven bu irrationality and sheer greed. The warnings are clear, the parrot in the coal mine is everywhere shouting, we the people are sick and tired of so much hypocrisy, self-interested and short-sighted, corrupt policy making from those that believe they are the masters of the world (the Donald Trumps, Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson’s, Russian mafia, and big corporations such as Chevron, BP, and Shell, Gap and Walmart and so many others). Enough nonsense please. It is high time all these issues and movements work together to change a consumer-obsessed system which has reached its limits, both in envinrmantal, social and conceptual terms. Again, enough nonsense please!

      It’s worth noting that the middle class has fought every effort to invest in public transportation, reducing our dependency on privately-owned motor vehicles. The most carcinogenic (cancer-causing) type of smoke is the kind that contains oil particles, and the leading cause is motor vehicles (not tobacco). It is these oil particles that are killing off forests and causing climate change. But Americans demand their “right” to drive as much as they can afford to drive.

        I do believe that, as facts are stubborn and on´t just go away because some poerful and deep-pocketed interests woud wish them away, that they will eventually prevail over the nonsense big oil and others are peddling. I also believe that as facts come out, we will reevaluate our incredible dependency on cars and fossil fuels and the ever-increasing environmental and social costs associated with this incredible level of dependency. I do believe reason and the survival instinct will kick in and we wil come to realize that the costs are way too high and other alternaties do exist which are friendly to the environment, foster greater social cohesion, help to improve air quality, reduce noise and stress levels, are less space consuming and less accident-prone and definitely and infinitely more efficient in their use of scarce energy resources to get us around from one place to another than the individual car!!!!

    On economic justice, what should we do about those who can’t work, due to health or circumstances, and those for whom there are no jobs available? A huge portion of our working class jobs were shipped out since the 1980s, and Clinton ended basic poverty relief in the 1990s. Since we don’t address this, what gives Americans any authority (or legitimacy) to address poverty beyond the US?
