Glimmerings of Democracy and Environmental Action


The Open Veins of Climate Change

A New Climate Movement in Bolivia

Whether or not human activity influences climate change to any measurable degree, the movement toward democracy and environmental action in Bolivia is encouraging. They have correctly identified the source of global pollution and greenhouse gases in corporate industrial capitalism and they have recognized that democracy is the response to confront the capitalist totalitarian state.

Those of us in the United States concerned with such things could do worse than joining our brothers and sisters in resistance!

  3. I guess Rod is suggesting that anyone that advocates grass roots democracy and environmental action is somehow either a terrorist or heading down the road toward terrorism and blowing up stuff.
    But as I see it, it's mainly the industrial capitalist blowing up stuff....
