    Mairie du 12ème in Paris, France

    Les peuples de L'Amazonie face à la Déforestation

    En décembre de cette année se tiendra en France la 21ème Conférence des parties de la convention cadre des Nations Unies sur les changements climatiques (COP21). L'incapacité des dernières Conférences pour contraindre les principaux pays émetteurs de gaz à effet de serre est un mauvais présage pour celle de cette année 2015.L'Amazonie est la forêt tropical la plus importante de la planète. Les peuples millénaires qui y habitent ont su en prendre soin pendant de longues années et ont ainsi contribué au bien-être de l'humanité dans d'autres régions du monde. Toutefois la civilisation capitaliste depuis plus d'un siècle fait des ravages en Amazonie. D'abord pour la recherche du caoutchouc, puis des hydrocarbures; maintenant pour l’élevage, la culture extensive du soja et d'autres plantes, entre autres pour le biodiésel. Mais aussi, sur demandes de la société capitaliste, l'orpaillage, la culture extensive de la feuille de coca, le reboisement avec une seule espèce. Souvent les États, avec des politiques de privatisation et de concessions énergétiques, agro-industrielles et forestières, font fi des droits territoriaux des peuples autochtones, droits pourtant historiques, garantis par des conventions et déclarations internationales. Face à cette situation les peuples autochtones, souvent avec le soutien de peuples métis de l'Amazonie, préfèrent périr dans la défense de leurs droits que de voir leur lieu de vie et leurs conditions de vie se détériorer ou disparaitre complètement.Pour contribuer à la compréhension de ce qui se passe dans cette partie de l'Amérique du Sud, le Réseau latino-américain pour les Droits de la Terre-Mère et la Justice sociale, organise avec le soutien de la Mairie du 11ème arrondissement de Paris, une soirée "Les peuples de l'Amazonie face à la déforestation", le vendredi 27 mars. La question de la pertinence de la création d'un Tribunal international face à des faits caractérisés d'écocide ainsi que l'étude des cas du Brésil et du Pérou y seront abordés. Les conférences seront suivis d'un échange avec le public. Le public pourra aussi apprécier une exposition photo, des vidéos et voyager avec la musique du groupe Ayala.Conférenciers:- Alfredo Peña Vega, avocat : " Le Tribunal de la Terre et la déforestation en Amazonie "- Jean-Pierre Chaumeil, ethnologue : La déforestation en Amazonie Péruvienne"- Carlos Garcia Paret, économiste : " La déforestation en Amazonie Brésilienne "   Photographes lauréats du concours: Odair Leal, Karen Hoffman, Frantz Florez, Margerie David, Rachel Gepp

    Cross-Canada Day of Action: No 4 and 4! Immigration Not Deportation!

    The Harper Cons plan to uproot migrant workers that have lived, worked and formed relationships in Canada for over four years. So, on March 29th, join us at Citizenship and Immigration Canada headquarters to seed justice. We will be planting small seedlings that you will be able to take home. Bring your friends and family for this community action to seed justice. Refuse a revolving door immigration system and call for full immigration status for all. * Toronto: March 29, 2pm at Citizenship and Immigration Canada headquarters (55 St. Clair E. St. Clair and Yonge – St. Clair subway station) * Actions are also planned in Edmonton, Guelph, Hamilton, Niagara, Peterborough and Okanagan valley. Details at http://no4and4.tumblr.com/Events As of April 1, 2015, all migrant workers in Canada in low-waged jobs and on Temporary Foreign Worker or Live-In Caregiver permits will be barred from working in the country for more than four years. All those that have been in Canada more than that time will face mass deportation. They will also be banned from returning to work in Canada for four years. Those that choose to stay will become undocumented. These changes are effectively a mass deportation. These rules will tear apart families, friends and communities across the country. Migrant workers pay tens of thousands of dollars to come to Canada and work at minimum wage jobs to provide an opportunity for their family; so that their children can go to school; and to have a better life. The 4 & 4 rule strips away migrant workers’ dignity, forces workers already in precarity into further uncertainty, and imposes discriminatory and arbitrary barriers on how long workers can stay here. That these migrants have worked in Canada for four years proves that their jobs are permanent, not temporary. These friends and community members deserve permanent residence, not deportation. This 4 and 4 rule entrenches a revolving door immigration policy, employers can simply replace current with new workers.

He is planning to walk from Ottawa, ON to Kitigan Zibi, QC to Bridget Tolley's house March 31st - April 5th, 2015 Since Theland was 10 years old he wanted to support missing and murdered Indigenous womens intiatives and has come out every year to honour them by singing and drumming at Families of Sisters in Spirit vigils and ceremonies twice each year on Oct4th and Feb 14th. Theland feels its important to bring attention to the children of missing and murdered Indigenous women need to be acknowledged and supported because he feels they are forgotten and under represented but they are the ones left behind. These children lost their mothers, aunties, sisters, cousins and are left to struggle with the loss and trauma that largely goes unacknowleged. Theland wants those children to know he is thinking about them and he will continue to "walk in a good way" to be there for them. It will take Theland 5-7 days to walk /run the 134 kilometers if he walks for 6 hours each day. Theland has the full support his family and community support. Please show your support in supporting youth leading the way to bring attention to this important intiative taken on by a young man.
