In April 2010, more than 35,000 people from around the world gathered in Cochabamba, Bolivia, for the People`s Conference on Climate Change and Mother Earth Rights. The People`s Conference was convened by Bolivian President Evo Morales in response to what was not done at the UN Copenhagen Climate Change Conference in December 2009. The failure of COP 15 to reach a viable binding agreement to tackle the problems of climate change on our planet and the exclusion of passionate voices on the ground have caused great frustration. In Copenhagen, international networks of civil society groups, indigenous organizations and climate justice activists on the ground united to protest what has been described as “undemocratic, unfair and insufficient to deal with the scale of the problem.” […] The strength and dignity of the voices of people around the world have made it clear that this process, if it were to be on our behalf, would not be conducive to wrong solutions. Therefore, when the final statement was read, most people from different working groups were satisfied with the result. In fact, the explanation is inspiring – it sees capitalism as the cause of climate change and denounces the carbon market at risk. But beyond its commitment to the UN process, it lacks a real plan to move forward. pwccc.wordpress.com/2010/04/24/peoples-agreement/) […] […] the rest of the agreement HERE AKPC_IDS `5189`; If you like, then you should have a bookmark on […] The antidote to the poison of the Agreement signed In Extremis at COP17 in Durban is here!/ The antidote to the poison In Extremis Accord, which has just been signed by representatives of the Cop17 Durban Contries, is here! pwccc.wordpress.com/2010/04/24/peoples-agreement stressing the urgent need to take action to achieve this vision and, with the support of peoples, movements and countries, developed countries should commit to achieving ambitious emission reduction targets that achieve short-term goals, while maintaining our vision of the balance of the planet`s climate system, in line with the ultimate goal of the Convention.
