Severn Suzuki: UN Earth Summit 1992

Standard

Severn Suzuki spoke at the UN Earth Summit over 20 years ago. 

She planted a seed of hope and passion in my young heart when I first saw this video, while living in Brazil, over four years ago. I feel honored and extremely excited to return to where she first made this speech. I hope to meet with other youth and work together to inspire the next generations to work and live for justice and peace as well.

LA Via Campesina!

La Via Campesina Durban Declaration

Assembly of the Oppressed, 5th December 2011, Durban, South Africa. This is an incredible example of grassroots movements in the face of climate change and the patriarchal, sexist, neocolonial powers which cause it.

“We, La Via Campesina, the global movement of peasants, small-scale and agricultural family farmers, is severely dismayed at the attempts of the developed countries to further escape their historic responsibility to make real emission cuts and push for more false and market based solutions to the climate crisis.”
