Meat industry: the big omission from the talks on emissions

 

Meat industry is the second greenhouse gas producer (methane and several others gases worse than CO2 in terms of global warming) and astoundingly it’s not yet in the UN negotiation agenda. Big environmental NGOs also tend to ignore farm animals while opportunistically base many of their campaigns on saving endangered polar bears.

Alexandra Clark, a sustainable food campaigner and member of Humane Society, tells us about their current campaign to push for meat reduction on diets, a key issue that will have to be negotiated at the UN by 2018.

Action on fossil free culture at the Louvre

This morning we went to the Louvre to participate at the open beautiful action that was going to happen there to expose the fossil fuel lobby which is sponsoring the museum. We tell you what happened there and we also got an audio from people who got arrested inside the Louvre because they made a ritual with oil-simulation in one of its halls to expose corporate power embedded in major cultural stakeholders.

“Dear Louvre, when the company Total sponsors you, you sponsor Total. Don’t sponsor Climate chaos!”

* We thank The New Internationalist for the last bit of the audio, a message from the activists arrested.

One of the organisers talked to us and explained us more details about this disobedient call for action.

We are not fighting for nature. We are nature defending itself.

Climate activists stopped at border controls with France

Last Friday we met an activist that had just arrived to Paris and had crossed the Belgian border to enter France. He told us he’d been stopped for three hours and his phone was taking to check what sort of contacts he had and whether he had any link to activism. Luckily he had been warned the day before but three other people in the bus were sent back to their countries with no explanation. We talked to the activist and he explained us in detail what happened and suggests some recommendations to activists arriving to France this week.
