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.

Credit: The Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), the intergovernmental body which assesses the state of biodiversity and of the ecosystem services it provides to society, in response to requests from decision makers.

NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 15 2020 (IPS) - We have known for a long time that biodiversity, and the services it provides, have been in decline. It is on this background that ten years ago, the international community adopted the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020.

The goal of the plan, and its Aichi Biodiversity Targets, was to halt biodiversity loss and ensure that ecosystems continued to provide essential services.

Governments and the wider society have acted to address the biodiversity crisis. Some nations have made some progress. However, as this Report Card on global progress demonstrates, we have not met the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. And we are not on track for the 2050 Vision for Biodiversity.

Many of you might have heard me speak to the devastating consequences of humanity’s imprint on nature, in particular, the COVID-19 pandemic, a zoonotic disease transmitted between animals and humans, which is by no means the first and will not be the last.

From COVID-19 to massive wildfires, floods, melting glaciers and unprecedented heat, our failure to meet the Aichi Targets – to protect our home – has very real consequences. We can no longer afford to cast nature to the side. Now is the time for a massive step up, conserving, restoring and using biodiversity fairly and sustainably.
