6 Lessons Learned Fighting Oppressive Regimes While Trying to Protect People and Planet

6 Lessons Learned Fighting Oppressive Regimes While Trying to Protect People and Planet The U.S. is bracing for President-elect Donald Trump. All initial indications are that the U.S. is in for a dramatic change of leadership, more like some of the authoritarian regimes we are used to reading about in other parts of the world. Over the last decade, I have worked as an environmental and human-rights philanthropist trying to protect people and the planet, some of that inside oppressive and authoritarian regimes.

The gnarled alvarinho vines have been relieved of their fruit to make vinho verde, an old woman in black herds her sheep through a hamlet and hungry eagles hover over the fields, scanning the land for lunch. But look up, past the villages, the clumps of stout ponies and the wolf-haunted forests of pine, oak and eucalyptus, and the harbingers of an environmental revolution are silhouetted against the December sky. The 130 giant wind turbines that sprout from the peaks, slicing the air with a rhythmic sigh, have helped Portugal to a remarkable achievement. For four and a half days in May the country ran entirely on electricity from renewable sources: wind, hydro and solar power.

What Can Humanity's Hidden Past Teach Us About Our Future? An Interview with Graham Hancock | Wake Up World

What Can Humanity's Hidden Past Teach Us About Our Future? An Interview with Graham Hancock | Wake Up World December 7th, 2016 By Dr. Kelly Neff Guest writer for Wake Up World Author and inspirational thinker Graham Hancock appeared on Lucid Planet Radio last week, to chat with me about his latest (2015) book, “Magicians of the Gods”, which continues his work of uncovering humanity’s hidden past. You probably recognize Graham Hancock as the author of bestselling books like “Fingerprints of the Gods”, or from his banned Ted Talk, “The War on Consciousness” – a must see if you haven’t already. In addition to his talks, presentations and books reaching an audience of tens of millions, in February, Hancock was voted No. 14 in the Watkins list of “The 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People.”

Since the summer of 2013, following the military coup led by President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the ruling regime in Egypt has managed to handcuff the public space, surround it with restrictions. This has been in a stark contrast to the period before the coup when Egyptians, during the popular uprising that took place on January, 25, 2011, were encouraged to engage actively in managing the country's affairs through peaceful means and ballot boxes. This period benefited both civil society organisations and political parties.

Official figures reveal that people with malnutrition accounted for 184,528 hospital bed days last year, a huge rise on 65,048 in 2006-07. The sharp increase is adding to the pressures on hospitals, which are already struggling with record levels of overcrowding. Critics have said the upward trend is a result of rising poverty, deep cutbacks in recent years to meals on wheels services for the elderly and inadequate social care support, especially for older people.

Hippies, Punks, Nomads, Nudists - Rainbow Gatherings are a Festival of Freedom (PHOTOS)

From gays, punks, Christians, sectarians, nudists and Krishna followers, to Nomads and conspiracy theorists, like a vivid palate of paint; they meet at the annual Rainbow Gathering. 30,000 people attended the largest Rainbow Gathering in history, which took place in Washington State in a publicly-owned national forest. When this large, rainbow gatherings become something like a micro society; a utopian city that even has neighborhoods, where everyone is welcome. What might look to the undiscerning eye as a festival of freaks, drug addicts, and naked people, is actually community of like-minded people that practice the ideals of peace, love, respect, harmony and freedom. Participants widely believe that the modern lifestyles and systems of government are unsustainable, exploitative, and out of harmony with the natural systems of the planet. The rainbow family is an expression of Utopian impulse with an added touch of bohemianism and hippy culture, which refer to mainstream society as “Babylon” and consciously express an alternative to consumerism, capitalism, and mass media. These gatherings happen annually all over the world, and have proven a durable phenomenon for over 40 years. They wake up with the sun, and several sacred ceremonies begin to take place. There are discussion circles where all ideologies and beliefs coexist in harmony. When you hold the talking stick, no one else can speak, even if the circle is 600 strong. Hours earlier, forty people just arrived in a horse-drawn caravan from Brazil, whose journey lasted about a year. At the Rainbow Gathering in Palenque, Mexico, Benoit Paillé documents a colourful pattern of different lifestyles. Going to the Rainbow Gathering, he says, means to reconsider yourself. Those who attend will be transformed and purged of the cultural fabrications that have been imposed on them, arriving home with the invisible, but powerful gift of questions and ideas.

Five reasons why you should stop worrying and go vegan | The Independent

Five reasons why you should stop worrying and go vegan | The Independent

With the news that more than 540,000 people – more than 1 per cent of the population – now follow a vegan diet, 2016 has become the Year of the Vegan. But if you’re yet to be convinced, here are five compelling reasons to ditch animal products for good.

You don’t want the world to end

There’s nothing like beginning an article with a little light-hearted doom-mongering, but animal agriculture is wreaking havoc on our planet. It is a leading cause of climate change, habitat destruction and species extinction. A recent State of Nature report found that intensive farming has an "overwhelmingly negative" impact on nature, threatening more than half of UK species.
As if this wasn’t enough, we could soon be contending with widespread antibiotic resistance due to the use of the strongest antibiotics rising to record levels on European farms. Animal agriculture is leading us to the brink of a superbug epidemic which, according to the UK chief medical officer, poses a "bigger threat than terrorism" to human life.

Historic UN vote to negotiate a global nuclear weapons ban - The Ecologist

Last week the UN General Assembly's Disarmament and Security Committee voted for negotiations to begin next year on a new international treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons, writes Rebecca Johnson, bypassing the stalled Non Proliferation Treaty. One immediate consequence is to make the UK's plans to replace its Trident nuclear missile system 'completely untenable'.

Ireland Takes Major Step Towards Nationwide Fracking Ban

Ireland Takes Major Step Towards Nationwide Fracking Ban

A bill banning hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in the Republic of Ireland was voted through the Dáil Éireann (the country's House of Representatives, so to speak) on Thursday.
During a televised debate over the bill, a number of speakers passionately argued that unconventional oil and gas operations have significant adverse effects.

According to the Irish Examiner, the bill's passage is "the first step in enforcing a nationwide ban on fracking and it will give the Government 12 weeks before it goes before further parliamentary scrutiny." The bill has now been moved to the committee stage for further review. 
Fracking does not currently take place in the Emerald Isle but three exploratory licenses have been granted. The bill, The Prohibition of the Exploration and Extraction of Onshore Petroleum Bill, was introduced by Dáil member Tony McLoughlin, TD of the Fine Gael party. McLoughlin currently represents Sligo-Leitrim, a constituency that has been marked for potential shale gas exploration.
The legislation initially faced a potential eight-month delay to allow for Ireland's Environmental Protection Agency to issue a report on fracking, but the Government ultimately decided not to table the proposal. 
During a televised debate over the bill, a number of speakers—across parties, no less—passionately argued that unconventional oil and gas operations have significant adverse effects, including its threat to human health, that it pollutes water and drives climate change, and would hamper Ireland's emissions targets
Oisin Coghlan, the director of Friends of the Earth Ireland, live tweeted the entire debate. 
"Fracking has no place in a low carbon future," said Joe Carey, Fine Gael TD for County Clare, according to Coghlan's tweet.

5/6 November: Charter of the Forest weekend celebration presented by New Putney Debates

Come and join in the celebration of historic and ongoing social struggles to secure ways to live equitably and sustainably on the land.

The New Putney Debates is celebrating the anniversary of the Charter of the Forest - the twin charter to the Magna Carta - over the weekend of 5/6 November, as part of the build up for the 800th anniversary of the Charter that falls next year. The Charter of the Forest granted rights to commoners to live from the land; in the forests, chases and commons of England and Wales. 

Still relevant and radical today, the Charter granted the idea of a general right to a sustainable existence from the fruits of the commonwealth. The first ecological Charter, it provides for sustainable use of the land, with people over successive generations using it to keep land in common usage.

The upcoming weekend of events which The New Putney Debates collective (https://thenewputneydebates.com ) is organising will explore the history behind the Charter of the Forest agreement and contemporary struggles for land - from the legends of Robin Hood, to fights and struggles to access land for food and against enclosure, and more contemporary social movements for housing, against privatisation and to protect local ecosystems, in the face of encroaching development.

Launching at 2pm on 5th November with a boat trip to Hackney Marshes, which is still a commons, attendees will find out about the history of land use there, including recent efforts by local people to ensure that Olympic regeneration did not ruin the local habitat and to keep land publicly accessible. The Fordham Gallery barge will then return to its mooring in Hackney Wick to exhibit a timeline, from London's early beginnings, of the historic struggles for land and democracy in the city and Thames Valley, up to the end of the 13th century when the Charter of the Forest entered statute together with the Magna Carta.

In the evening, starting at 7:30pm, Fordham Gallery will host a boat party, with Robin Grey leading a sing-a-long of Land and Housing protest songs from folk history, drawing on the show ‘3 Acres and a Cow’. This will be followed by an acoustic set from Pete Deane, Tim Flitcroft and friends, followed by pizza and a land and rebel song set. Please bring along your favourite track to play!

On Sunday 6th November, there will be a guided walking tour, exploring the history and meaning of the Charter of the Forest, starting at Lambeth Palace, where peace accords were agreed between the Barons and the King on 11th September 1217, and ending at StPaul's Cathedral, where the Charter was agreed on the 6th November 1217 .

Programme 


2pm: Boat Trip visit to the Hackney Marshes common land. Meet 2pm at Fordham Gallery Boat, River Lee, White Post Lane, Hackney Wick, E15. FREE

5pm: Opening of the timeline. This shows a history of land-rights and protest in and around London and the Thames Valley, from the first settlement of London to the entering of the Charter of the Forest and the Magna Carta into statute in 1297. Venue: Fordham Gallery Boat, River Lee, White Post Lane, Hackney Wick, E15. FREE

7:30pm until late: Lands & Housing Rights protest song sing-a long with Robin Grey, featuring songs from the ‘Three Acres and a Cow, followed by boat party with acoustic music and pizza, featuring musician Pete Deane, Tim Flitcroft and friends. Venue: Fordham Gallery Boat, River Lee, White Post Lane, Hackney Wick, E15. £5 tickets can be booked at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/boat-party-charter-of-the-forest-celebration-tickets-28145723617


1pm: Walking tour featuring important points in the development of the Charter of the Forest. Meet by the roundabout outside  Lambeth Palace at 1pm, ends at St Paul’s Cathedral at about 3:15pm. FREE
