COP26 Forest Protection: Just Hot Air!

Leaders like Xi Jinping, Jair Bolsonaro and Joe Biden have presented a new agreement to halt and reverse deforestation by 2030. Major forested countries like Brazil, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Papua New Guinea will all sign the commitment. Unfortunately it will allow for another decade of forest destruction! This is too much. The Amazon is already on the brink and can’t survive years more of deforestation. Indigenous Peoples are calling for 80% of the Amazon to be protected by 2025. Otherwise the rest of the Amazon could turn in to savannah. There is also little chance Bolsonaro would even abide by this entirely voluntary agreement. The 2014 New York Declaration was not abided to either. It would have demanded an end of deforestation in supply chains until 2020. Bolsonaro is currently still preparing a new law package that would encourage deforestation. With the lack of action to reduce demand for industrial meat and dairy there is no chance forest protection would be effective! That is why we still need the European forest protection law.

COP26 Waldschutz: nur heiße Luft!

Anführer wie Xi Jinping, Jair Bolsonaro und Joe Biden haben eine neue Vereinbarung präsentiert um die Entwaldung bis 2030 aufzuhalten. Die wichtigsten Waldländer wie Brasilien, die Demokratische Republik Kongo und Papua-Neuguinea werden alle mit unterschreiben. Leider wird es damit ein weiteres Jahrzehnt der Waldzerstörung geben! Das ist zu viel. Der Amazonas ist bereits am Rande der Vernichtung und kann kein weiteres Jahrzehnt der Abholzung mehr ertragen. Indigene Völker fordern 80% des Amazonas bis 2025 zu schützen. Andernfalls könnte sich der Rest in Savanne verwandeln. Es gibt selbst wenig Chance, daß Bolsonaro diese völlig freiwillige Vereinbarung überhaupt einhalten wird. Mit der New Yorker-Erklärung von 2014 ist dasselbe passiert. Die hätte ein Ende der Entwaldung in den Lieferketten bis 2020 verlangt. Bolsonaro bereitet derzeit weiterhin ein neues Gesetzespaket vor, das die Entwaldung noch verstärken würde. Ohne Maßnahmen die Nachfrage nach industriellen Fleisch- und Molkereiprodukten zu verringern besteht keine Chance, daß Waldschutz wirksam ist. Deshalb brauchen wir noch das europäische Waldschutzgesetz!

Por pura codicia Chevron/Texaco abandonó deliberadamente millones de litros de residuos tóxicos de la producción de petróleo en lagunas y ríos en Ecuador en lugar de devolverlos bajo tierra, ya que habría sido el estado de la técnica cuando Texaco estaba perfurando. Los habitantes no tenían agua potable y murieron de cáncer. El Abogado Steven Donziger ha defendido a Ecuador. Se negó a entregar su computadora, teléfono celular y archivos confidenciales del caso a Chevron, lo que habría sido ilegal a sus clientes. El sistema de justicia corrupto estadounidense lo puso bajo arresto domiciliario, que no quería terminar durante más de dos años. Ayer, un juez elegido por Chevron lo ha enviado a una de las prisiones más inseguras del país donde muchas personas ya han muerto o resultaron heridas. Amnesty International, Protect the Protest Task Force, Amazon Watch, Law Students for Climate Accountability y el actor y activista Lucy Lawless ahora requieren al unísono que el Fiscal General Garland y el Presidente Biden cumplen con la decisión del Grupo de Trabajo de las Naciones Unidas sobre Detención Arbitraria (United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention) y de inmediato liberan a Donziger.

De puro ganância a Chevron/Texaco despejou deliberadamente milhões de litros de resíduos tóxicos da produção de petróleo em lagoas e rios no Equador, em vez de devolvê-los ao subsolo, como teria sido o estado da arte quando a Texaco estava perfurando. Os habitantes não tinham água potável e morreram de câncer. O advogado Steven Donziger tem estado defendendo o Equador. Ele se recusou a virar o computador, o celular e os arquivos confidenciais do caso para a Chevron, o que teria sido ilegal aos seus clientes. O sistema de justiça corrupto dos EUA o colocou sob prisão domiciliar, que não queria terminar por mais de dois anos. Ontem, um juiz escolhido pela Chevron enviou-o para uma das prisões mais inseguras do país onde muitas pessoas já morreram ou ficaram feridas. Amnesty International, Protect the Protest Task Force, Amazon Watch, Law Students for Climate Accountability e o ator e ativista Lucy Lawless agora exigem em uníssono que o Advogado Geral Garland e o Presidente Biden cumprirem a decisão do Grupo de Trabalho das Nações Unidas sobre Detenção Arbitrária (United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention) e imediatamente libertarem Donziger.

Out of pure greed Chevron/Texaco has deliberately dumped millions of liters of toxic waste from oil production into ponds and rivers in Ecuador instead of returning them to the subsurface as would have been state of the art. The inhabitants have been dying of cancer as they did no more have unpolluted drinking water. The advocate Steven Donziger has defended Ecuador. He has refused to turn over his computer, cell phone and confidential case files to Chevron which would have been illegal to his clients. That is why the corrupt US-justice system has put him under house arrest, which did not want to end for more than two years. Yesterday a judge picked by Chevron has sent him to one of the most unsafe prisons in the country where many people already have died or got injured. Amnesty International, Protect the Protest Task Force, Amazon Watch, Law Students for Climate Accountability and actor and activist Lucy Lawless have now demanded in unison that Attorney General Garland and President Biden comply with the decision of the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention and immediately release Donziger.
