O meu desejo para 2010 - muita Paz e mais Justiça Climática - Peace on Earth and Climate Justice

Heaven on Earth, we need it now
I'm sick of all of this hanging around
I'm sick of the sorrow, I'm sick of the pain
And I'm sick of hearing again and again
That there's never gonna be peace on Earth

Hello from London

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
If for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Oh, oh
Walk on, walk on
What you got, they can't steal it
No, they can't even feel it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed, to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly, for freedom

Oh, oh
Walk on, walk on
What you got, they can't deny it
Can't sell it, or buy it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe, tonight
Yeah I know it aches
And how your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on

You gotta leave it behind
We've got to leave it behind

All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you deal
All you count on two fingers
And all that you steal

You've got to leave it behind / Halle, halle
You've got to leave it behind hallelujah / Halle, hallelujah
See you when I get home
See you when I get home, sister / Halle, hallelujah
(Halle), home... / Halle, halle
Halle, hallelujah / Halle, hallelujah
Halle, halle

Justiça Climática- um e-livro actual e fundamental, lançado e preparado e que foi apresentado na COP15


Contours of Climate Justice:: Ideas for shaping new climate and energy politics
Critical Currents no. 6, October 2009 Free E-Book

The climate is changing in more ways than one. Not only has an increasing concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere been wreaking havoc in the global biosphere, but there has also been a significant shift in the way the issue of climate change is debated. From being a marginal ‘green’ issue, it is now central to many a strategy for political and economic renewal. It has become ever more obvious that the image of climate change is not primarily the drowning polar bear, but the farmer without crops, the migrant without a home, the worker with no future. Yet international efforts to slow climate change have not advanced much beyond square one. At the same time, a new global cycle of struggle seems to be coalescing around the call for climate justice, in particular in the mobilisation around the 15th international climate summit in Copenhagen.

This collection of interventions contributes to the re-conceptualisation of climate change as an issue of justice, and therefore also of struggle. It further seeks to strengthen a climate and energy politics that will prove capable of solving the multiple crises that climate change is part of, and which humanity is facing.
