2021 wurden 200 Umweltschützer ermordet, insg. in 10 Jahren 1773, jeden 2. Tag ein Mensch,der versucht, natürliche Lebensgrundlagen zu retten. Verantwortlich die Konzerne, die im globalen Süden fossile Ressourcen ausbeuten.


Betroffen überproportional indigener Menschen, die versuchen, Lebensgrundlagen zu verteidigen. Sie sind die Kämpfer für Umwelt- & Klimaschutz, in Ländern, die besonders von kapitalist., neo-kolonialer Ausbeutung betroffen sind.

#AllForAmazon Week 19

An Amazonian area the size of 3,000 football fields is being cleared daily,but apparently,is not enough:

“The Brazilian government has approved a railway that will tear apart 933km of Amazon forest & decimate countless lives & swathes of Indigenous lands.
The "#Ferrogrão" project is being rushed through by Bolsonaro’s government,with heavy backing from agribusiness greedy giants like Bunge, ADM & Cargill.

The situation is extremely serious. Experts confirmed that if this railway gets built, the damage will be irreversible.
Any moment now,the erasure of ancient🌳& villages could begin,but we can still stop this horror.Indigenous leaders are urgently asking 4 OUR support–if ppl across the 🌎 show we're watching,we can ramp up the pressure on decision-makers in Brazil & abroad to halt this atrocity”.

Do you know the super ecocide&unconstitutional Brazil’s #PL490?This bill would open up protected indigenous lands to commercial agriculture & mining,& is backed by super far-far-far-right President Jair Bolsonaro who advocates developing the Amazon region by…,well,killing us all
This bill PL 490 is harmful not just to Amazonia, but to humanity. It was rejected by the human rights commission in 2009. “This is an unacceptable setback for indigenous rights and a constitutional absurdity," said Brazil's only indigenous lawmaker Joenia Wapichana.
The campaign to stop passage of the bill comes at a time of increased attacks on indigenous communities by wildcat gold miners who have illegally invaded indigenous lands. It’s a war against life & the future and humanity.

On June 5, 2021, the 72nd Infantry Battalion Philippine Army coerced residents, mostly Lumad, to demolish the Lumad school facilitated by Mindanao Interfaith Services Foundation Inc in Barangay Sagundanon, Bukidnon.
According to Lumad students here in the Bakwit School, their parents called them a week earlier saying they were being forced by soldiers to participate in the demolition or else they will face trumped up charges and arrest if they fail to cooperate.
“Natatakot kami para sa aming pamilya doon dahil palagi daw sila binabantayan ng mga sundalo. Kahit nga sa pagtawag sa amin, kailangan pa nilang magtago dahil natatakot din sila para sa amin.” Chricelyn, a Grade 12 student said.

Livestreaming telethon #StandWithStevenBaca #FightSorosDAs in 20 minutes across all platforms: Facebook, YouTube & here on Twitter. Will break news on case w/Steven & 1 of his lawyers. #ConInc isn't coming to #2A armed citizens' defense. SO WE MUST.…
I warned you all 2 months ago that what happened to armed citizen Steven Baca would happen again...beaten w/skateboard by rabid BLM/Antifa mob while cops stood down, forced to fire weapon to save life. Now same thing happened to Kenosha kid last night.

I think the Kenosha incident looks eerily similar to what happened to Steven Baca two months ago in his justified self-defense against a bloodthirsty, skateboard/weapon-wielding mob.

Morning, world! 🌎🌍🌏 Only 5 days left to 100M trees. ⏱🌳Protecting the climate means securing a better #future for generations to come, recognizing that the #climatecrisis is unfairly distributed across race, class and gender. How do trees #PlantClimateJustice ? [THREAD]
2/ When local communities have a better quality of life, the financial pressure to sell their land to mining companies, loggers, or big agribusinesses disappears. 🎥🌳 Often, trees are cut down because people run out of options. #defendthedefenders
3/ Without systemic change & social justice, we can’t tackle the #climatecrisis. Look at it this way: the only way Ecosia can make sure the trees we plant survive is by putting local communities first. 🙌🏿🌳🌎 #HumanRights = #ClimateJustice = #HealthyPlanet…

Nakakarimarim na imbes na trabahuhin ang pagtugon sa COVID-19 crisis, ang inaatupag ng bangag sa Malakanyang ay yung ngipin ng ibang tao.
At anong kinalaman ng ngipin ni Dean Chel sa laman ng utak niya at dalisay ng budhi niya, sa talino niya bilang abogado, at tapang bilang manananggol ng mahihirap at inaapi?
Abogado rin naman itong si Duterte ah. Yun nga lang, ibang klase ang mga ipinagtatanggol nya:

(1) China na umaagaw ng teritoryo, kumukuha ng negosyo, at nagdadala ng delubyo; at

(2)Mga kaalyado at alipores n’yang tiwali, palpak at abusado.
