Skirting “The Real News” [Network]

It’s fine that Hedges and DeChristopher decry frauds like Jones, but given 350’s many hoaxes funded by Wall Street (i.e. KXL, Clean Energy, Divestment, New Economy), when are independent journalists going to examine Klein and 350, itself a Big Green NGO on the payroll of Rockefeller Brothers and Warren Buffett. If you’re going to investigate major fraud, you might want to get real about the agenda of Avaaz, Purpose and 350. Skirting around the issue of hijacked activism that 350 represents aids Wall Street, not Main Street.

Indigenous Leaders Protect Mother Earth

A Culture of Imbeciles

Bolivia Conference

As Rudolph C. Ryser observes at Fourth World Eye, the call for environmental sanity that works for people and the planet — coinciding with the UN World Conference on Indigenous Peoples — is a chance for leaders from indigenous nations to press for the protection of Mother Earth. Indeed, the indigenous Aymara leader and President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, is responsible for making the world conference possible.

The People’s Agreement — adopted at the World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth that took place in Cochabamba, Bolivia in April 2010 — is the only realistic basis for seriously reducing fossil fuel dependency. While modern societies can hardly abandon fossil fuels altogether without suffering social collapse, there are ways of achieving effective solutions. None of which are being promoted by 350, Avaaz and other agent saboteurs of imperial civil society.

After failing to sabotage the Cochabamba accord, 350 has subsequently been busy hijacking activism on behalf of Wall Street. If anything lasting is to be accomplished on climate change, it will come from re-igniting the People’s Agreement from Cochabamba, led by indigenous governing authorities–not by falling prey to the Charms of Naomi.
