An Appeal from the Yanomami

The illegal gold miners poison the rivers with mercury, rape Yanomami women and have burnt down the Homoxi health base for the Yanomami people, the miners who are incited by the fact that mining is not allowed within the ancestral tribal area of the Yanomami. It is estimated that Yanomami children are dying almost 10 times more from preventable causes than the national average. The cases of death from malaria among them is more than 1,500 times higher than the average in the country thanks to the invaders. Edgar Yanomami was mowed down by a Garimpo plane. Mercury accumulates in the food chain! It is the first time the Yanomami are calling for help since Lula has been voted into power again as president of Brazil. sign: sobrenome ~ surname



COP27 Egypt / Lobbyism blocks

Sharm El-Sheik, Egypt: In fact, there are more fossil fuel lobbyists than representatives of the ten nations most impacted by the climate crisis. There is an increase of over 25% from COP26, showing the rising influence of the fossil fuel industry (see here). The research of Corporate Europe Observatory with Corporate Accountability and Global Witness identified these lobbyists, affiliated with some of the world's biggest polluting oil and gas giants such as Shell, Chevron and BP. They have launched a campaign to kick big polluters out of the negotiating table and ensure climate justice movements are steering the ship. It has already been endorsed by over 420 organisations and individuals. Climate policy is also made in the Wall Street and City of London while their representatives stem against meaningful actions to set regulatory provisions for financial investments and insurance companies.



Chevron Ecuador, Donziger/Corporate Prosecutions

Corporate prosecutions are a human rights violation. Everyone has the right for a fair trial and thus also the judge must not have a partisan corporate stance in the process he decides on. Many people say that the first corporate prosecution in history against Steven Donziger was less fair than many trials in China or Russia. Highly respected legal monitors and five jurists from the United Nations have determined his prosecution to be illegal. Donziger is a human rights lawyer who has defended the people from Ecuador who were poisoned by the massive and deliberate oil spill caused by Chevron/Texaco. In 2014 Chevron won the public eye lifetime award for the world´s worst behaving company. Since then many have died of cancer in the Amazonian forests. Now the Supreme Court has asked the Department of Justice in the US to rule on whether corporate prosecutions should be banned. Make sure your voice is heard since the stance of Biden is well known alas.



COP27 Egypt / Greed for Gas amid Ukraine war will Accelerate Climate Breakdown

The global quest for new gas explorations amid the Ukraine war could cause temperatures to soar beyond the 1.5°C limit of safety. Emissions will add up to about 10% of the total amount of carbon dioxide that can safely be emitted by 2050. The amount of oversupply will be about five times as much gas as the EU imported from Russia last year, and about twice as much as Russia’s total gas exports. If there is no progress on COP27, by 2100 global heating will likely reach a 2.4°C level above pre-industrial times. The International Energy Agency warned last year that basically no new fossil fuel development shall take place no more. Besides this exploiting oil and gas in Africa was unlikely to benefit ordinary people on the continent, but it would produce a bonanza for multinationals and the corrupt elites in these countries.
