Protest Coal Biomass Conversions!Monday, 22 April 2013 | Biofuelwatch 24 April, 2013London, UK
In July 2012, Drax confirmed that it plans to convert half of its capacity to burning biomass – this will make Drax by far the biggest biomass-burning power station in the world. If this goes ahead, Drax will be burning pellets made from up to 15.8 million tonnes of biomass – nearly all of it wood – every year. Since the UK’s total wood production is only 10 million tonnes a year, virtually all of the wood Drax needs will have to be... Read More
Please sign-on a statement of solidarity to Open Letter from Acre/Brazil on REDDThursday, 18 April 2013 | World Rainforest Movement
The state of California is in the final stages of deciding whether or not to accept offset credits from REDD offset projects in Acre into the California cap-and-trade system. A working group set up to make recommendations on the issue to the CA government supported such an inclusion (the composition of the WG participants was far from balanced or without bias). Conservation organisations in the US and in Brazil as well as Acre state government officials are lobbying heavily for such an inclusion of REDD offset credits from Acre into the CA carbon trading scheme. They argue strongly... Read More

Week of action against Tar Sands profiteersMonday, 11 March 2013 | tarsandsblockade.org
March 16 to 23, 2013
TransCanada, a multinational corporation, is building the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline through Oklahoma and Texas in the US to the Gulf. But this is no ordinary pipeline. It would pump toxic tar sands which is extremely dirty and dangerous from extraction to combustion. If burned, tar sands spells “game over” for a livable climate and would harm community drinking water and farmers’ livelihoods across the region. From day one TransCanada has lied and trampled on the rights of honest landowners... Read More

San Dionisio del Mar: Indigenous communities under police siege for resisting imposition of windparkMonday, 04 February 2013 | El Enemigo Común
Indigenous peoples on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec are resisting a new police offensive to impose the construction of a mega wind park by the Spanish transnational Mareña Renovables in the Barra de Santa Teresa of San Dionisio del Mar. This wind park, the largest in Latin America, would completely do away with the habitat, natural resources and food supplies of the fishing and farming families of the Barra and would also destroy their sacred sites. Moreover, the project is a direct violation of their human rights as an indigenous people.
As a form of protest, members... Read More

Argos and their land theft strategy in Montes de María: another reason to mobilize on March 6Tuesday, 06 March 2012 | MOVICE
These actions began late last year, when Cepeda delivered a letter to UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon, explaining the company's responsibility for land theft in the Montes de María region.
The illegitimacy of Argos' purchase of 12,500 hectares of land in Montes de María, bought at absurdly low prices, is exacerbated by the fact that the region was severely battered by paramilitary atrocities in the 1990s.
Furthermore, Argos is part of the Clean Development Mechanism, which allows it to participate in the international carbon trading market. In order to participate... Read More

Danish National Court rules mass arrest to be illegal!Friday, 27 January 2012 | Climate Collective - Copenhagen
The Danish police broke the law when they detained thousands of climate protesters on December the 12th and four other dates during the COP15 in Copenhagen. The National Court of Denmark confirms the ruling of the City Court of Copenhagen and declares all five mass-arrests during the COP15 illegal .
In addition the court ruled that article of the European human rights convention was violated on December the 12th as the police degraded and mistreatted the arestees. Thus compensation of up to 9000 Danish Kroner should still be awarded to the ones who filed complaints in due time. All in... Read More
