The activists confronting Shell at the COP24: Three Nigerians Nnimmo Bassey, Gowin Ojo and Rita Uwaka are part of the action

BY GLOBAL COMPLIANCE RESEARCH PROJECT

RECALLING THAT In 1988, at the Climate Change Conference in Toronto, three hundred global scientists, along with other participants concluded:

Humanity is conducting an unintended, uncontrolled, globally pervasive experiment whose ultimate consequence could be second only to a global nuclear war. the Earth's atmosphere is changed at an unprecedented rate by pollutants resulting from depositions of hazardous, toxic and atomic wastes and from wasteful fossil fuel use. These changes represent a major threat to international security and are already having harmful consequences over many parts of the globe.... it is imperative to act now."

In the Conference statement, Changing Atmosphere Conference in 1988 and they called for the global community, to Reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 20% of 1988 levels by the year 2005 as an initial global goal. Clearly the industrialized nations have a responsibility to lead the way both through their national energy policies and their bilateral multilateral assistance arrangement.

AWARE THAT In 1992, under article 4 of UNFCCC developed states made a commitment to return to 1990 levels by the end of the decade (i.e. 2000) (Article 4, UNFCCC);

RECALLING THAT in September 2007, at the UN, the Chair of the IPCC Rajendra Pachauri supported,"moving from a meat-based diet to a plant based diet.

RECALLING THAT In 2009 at an IPCC press conference at COP15, it was proclaimed that at a 2 degree rise in temperature, the poor, the vulnerable and the disenfranchised would not survive, at 1.5, they might

AWARE THAT in 2013, all member states adopted Sustainable Development Goal 13- Climate change presents the single biggest threat to development, and its widespread, unprecedented impacts disproportionately burden the poorest and most vulnerable. Urgent action to combat climate change is needed.

APPRECIATING THAT in 2015. at COP 21, Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, in Paris, urged states to negotiate with a global vision NOT with vested national interests

WELCOMING ON August 4 2019 Secretary General Antonio Guterres stated: We are facing a grave climate emergency. We need urgently to accelerate with Climate Action for the transformation the world needs. This is the battle of our lives. It is a battle we can win. It is a battle we must win.

Dear Yanis

 

I have tried to contact you for two months but your e-mail is still full; I thought i would try one more time because october 2 2020 is the last day that green party members in Canada has the opportunity to vote for an outstanding socialist candidate Dimitri Lascaris , and member of the Progressive  International

I

"My name is Joan Russow and I am the former leader of the Green Party of Canada."

 

I was extremely disappointed in Bernie Sanders’ not receiving the Democratic nomination but was revived when I saw that the both of you had launched the Progressive International and I joined immediately and hoped that would be a way of uniting progressives internationally. Especially those running for office. I am writing to you about an outstanding socialist candidate who is running for the leadership of the Green Party of Canada: Dimitri Lascaris.  He is running

 

To defy the powerful

To confront injustice

To unite progressives

To disrupt the status quo

 

He is well-respected lawyer and has taken on corporations through the courts   and he has been a fierce critic of capitalism. Both of us had given up on the NDP when they struck “socialism” from their mandate. You may remember him from when he interviewed you for the real news and from when he reported extensively on the austerity crisis in Greece and met numerous senior officials in the Syriza government.

DISARMAMENT POSTER - NORTHERN fRIENDS' pEACE BOARD 1935

UPDATE IN 2020

In December 2016, Canada along with US allies  gave the reason for not adopting the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapon, that US nuclear weapons are necessary for the security of Canada  and that Canada would never agree that nuclear weapons would never be used

And in july2017 Canada refused to sign and ratify a Treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons which undertakes never under any circumstances to:

(a) Develop, test, produce, manufacture, otherwise acquire, possess or stockpile nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices;

 (b) Transfer to any recipient whatsoever nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices or control over such weapons or explosive devices directly or indirectly;

 (c) Receive the transfer of or control over nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices directly or indirectly;

 (d) Use or threaten to use nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices;

 (e) Assist, encourage or induce, in any way, anyone to engage in any activity prohibited to a State Party under this Treaty;

(g) Allow any stationing, installation or deployment of any nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices in its territory or at any place under its jurisdiction or control.

 

And  instead Canada  had  agreed, at a NATO Conference, to the following;

1) Nuclear weapons must be maintained indefinitely.

2) we will improve their use and accuracy (modernize them).

3  wecan use them first.

4) we can target non-nuclear weapons states.

5) We can threaten to use them.

6) We can keep them in Europe, as we are now doing.

7)  We can launch some on 15 minutes warning.

8) We say “they are essential for peace."

And We will never agree that they should never be used.
