İstanbul’daki etkinliğe ilişkin çağrı metni:

20-21 Eylül Karşı İklim Zirvesi


 

Havalar gözlerimizin önünde hızla değişiyor. Gittikçe artan seller, kuraklık ve susuzluk bu yıl tarımdan, şehirlere tüm hayatımızı etkiledi. Üstelik iklim değişikliğinin artan etkileri yüzünden seneye ve daha sonraki senelerde daha kötülerini de göreceğiz. Alışkın olmadığımız hortum, sağanak yağışlar ve seller karşısında hiç birimiz hazırlıklı değiliz. Televizyon ve gazeteler dünyanın dört bir yanında iklim değişikliğinin yarattığı felaket haberlerini veriyor. Bilim insanları hükümet yetkililerine soruyorlar  “Sizlere çeyrek yüzyıldır söylemeye çalıştığımız şeyde tam olarak neyi anlamıyorsunuz?”

Akla uygun bir dünyada, karar vericiler bilim insanlarının uyarılarını dinlerlerdi. Ama bu dünyada akıl, mantık ve vicdan şirketlerin kârlarına kurban ediliyor.

İklim değişikliğinin yarattığı yıkımlar karşısında BM Genel Sekreteri Ban Ki-Moon 23 Eylül tarihinde dünya liderlerini “iklim krizin” içerikli olağanüstü bir toplantıya katılmaları için davette bulundu.

Yıllardan beri şiddetlenen iklim değişikliğini durdurmak için atmosferdeki sera gazlarını radikal biçimde sınırlamayan, uluslararası bağlayıcılığı ve yükümlülükleri olan bir anlaşmayı hayata geçirmeyen ülke liderleri tekrar bir araya gelecek.

Liderlerin bir araya gelecekleri tarihten bir önceki hafta sonu yani 20- 21 Eylül de tüm dünyada küresel eylem günü olarak ilan edildi.  Dünyanın dört bir yanındaki iklim aktivistleri ise uluslararası bir anlaşmanın tüm canlı yaşamı için zorunlu olduğunu dile getirmek için bir araya gelecek. Amerika’dan Hİndistan’a, Filipinler’den İngiltere’ye milyonlarca insan 20- 21 Eylül tarihlerinde iklim adaleti için sokağa çıkacak. Biz de bu uluslararası hareketin bir parçası olarak; insanın ve doğanın sömürülmediği bir dünya için; ne iklimi değiştiren fosil yakıtlara dayalı bir geleceğe ne de ekosistemi yıkıma sürükleyen; nükleer, HES, kentsel dönüşüm ve benzeri çılgın projelerin yapılmasına izin vermeyeceğimizi dile getireceğimiz etkinlikler ve yürüyüş düzenleyeceğiz.

Öngörülenden bile hızlı gerçekleşen iklim değişikliliğine karşı “harekete geçmek için” bir aradayız. Gelin 20-21 Eylül’de İstanbul’da nasıl bir dünya istediğimizi konuşacağımız “İklimi değil sistemi değiştireceğiz!, Onlar bir avuç biz milyarlarız.” zirvesini birlikte inşa edelim.

One Month Countdown Until Major Climate Marches in NYC and Around the World

One-month out from what’s expected to be the largest march on climate change in history, groups launch massive recruitment push

August 21, 2014, NEW YORK — With just one month to go until the People’s Climate March in New York City this September 21, more than 100 organizations are taking part in an online recruitment drive to sign people up for the demonstration. In the first hours of the push, thousands of new signups have already begun to flow in.

The People’s Climate March is expected to be the largest demonstration for climate action in history. The march takes place just two days before President Obama and world leaders gather for an emergency Climate Summit at the United Nations. Marchers are demanding leaders go beyond rhetoric and commit to bold action at the summit.

More than 750 organizations around the world are supporting the People’s Climate March. In total, the groups represent roughly 100 million people worldwide.  

The scale of organizing for the march now rivals that of a major electoral campaign, with thousands of volunteers, daily phone-banks and canvasses in NYC, and a major online operation to turn out marchers. Updates from the field include: 

  • Trains and hundreds of buses will be bringing people from across the country for the march. Including a dedicated train from San Francisco to New York, a dedicated train from D.C. to New York, and buses from multiple points outside of New York.

  • More than 45 labor unions have signed onto the march, pledging to turn out members in New York City and from surrounding areas.

  • Connecticut alone has over 40 different groups confirmed to attend.

  • Renowned artist Shepard Fairey, whose Obama Hope poster has become world famous,  has donated a poster design for the march

  • At a warehouse in Brooklyn, artists are creating giant sculptures, floats, and banners for the march.

  • The global campaigning group Avaaz has secured 10% of the subway ads in NYC for the month before the march. The ads were chosen after a poster design contest that netted over 400 entries worldwide.

  • Groups are planning a major student recruitment push for college campuses as classes resume in September.

The People’s Climate March has also gone global, with other major marches and solidarity events being planned worldwide: 

  • In New Delhi, thousands will take over the streets on September 20 to demand a renewable energy revolution.

  • In Australia, organizers are expecting hundreds of individual events to take place across the country, including a major march in Melbourne.

  • In London environment organisations and faith groups are combining forces to create a historic march through the city to the steps of Parliament.

  • In Berlin three parallel marches will combine forces in a colourful festival.

  • Events are already being planned in Ghana, Kenya, DRC, Nigeria, and Guinea, along with a major march in Johannesburg.

  • In Paris, local groups will create the “Paris Marche pour le Climat,” with parades, marches, and bicycle rides planned across the bridges of the Seinne.

  • Reports are also coming in of large mobilizations planned in: Kathmandu, Rio, Sao Paulo, Jakarta, Dublin, Manila, Seoul, Mumbai and Istanbul.

Organizers are confident that the sheer scale and diversity of the People’s Climate March events, from the headline demonstration in New York City to the simultaneous events worldwide, will show politicians that there is a massive, energized movement demanding immediate action to address the climate crisis.

In New York City, the message will be difficult to ignore: marchers have come to an agreement with the NYPD for the march to flow directly through the middle of Manhattan. The march will begin at Columbus Circle at 11:30am on Sunday, proceed over on 59th Street to 6th Avenue, down 6th Avenue to 42nd Street, then right on 42nd Street to 11th Avenue. The route passes by some of New York City’s most famous landmarks, from Rockefeller Center to Times Square.

The march and the Climate Summit in New York mark the beginning of a busy 18 months of crucial international negotiations. Climate negotiators will head to Lima, Peru, in December 2014 to make progress towards a global climate deal. Then, in September 2015 world leaders will meet back in New York to adopt the Sustainable Development Goals, the global post-2015 development agenda. Three months later, the world will gather in Paris to try and sign a new international climate treaty.

A global call to action launched around September’s UN Climate Summit.

August 14, 2014, GLOBAL — Today the People’s Climate Mobilisation web platform has been launched as part of a global call to action to coincide with the People’s Climate March taking place in New York City this September just before a  United Nations Climate Summit. The march in New York will take place on the 21st of September, and the global mobilisation will span the full weekend of September 20-21.

The NY march aims to bring hundreds of thousands of people to the streets of New York City to call on world leaders to commit to bold climate action as they arrive to attend a historic Climate Summit hosted by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. The summit is one of the last chances for world leaders to come together and spark international progress before it becomes too late to avoid catastrophic climate impacts. World leaders will be greeted with the largest mobilisation on climate change in history in NY and globally.

“People from across the planet will be making sure that leaders gathered in New York know the demand for action comes from every corner,” said Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org, a global climate campaign on climate change. “This is the first truly global problem, and it has spawned the first truly global movement!”

The main demand from this global mobilisation is for Action, Not Words. Actions necessary to create a world with an economy that works for people and the planet – now. In short, a world safe from the ravages of climate change.

The web platform launched today will serve as a focal point for mobilisations being planned globally and as an open platform where anyone, anywhere will be able to register a local event and will also find online support tools in multiple languages.

“Climate change is the greatest challenge we’ve ever faced,” said Hoda Baraka, Global Communications Manager for 350.org, “but it’s also an incredible opportunity to create a more just and sustainable world. The People’s Climate Mobilisation is a chance to take a major step forward, making it crucial for people across regions to partake.”

Several large marches, rallies, and events are already being planned in Delhi, Jakarta, London, Rio de Janeiro, Berlin and Paris to name a few.

Alongside the global mobilisations a delegation of globally diverse grassroots leaders will be in attendance in New York to ensure voices from movements and campaigns around the world are heard while also giving emphasis to ongoing struggles which will serve to launch a series of mobilisations beyond September.

The People’s Climate Mobilisation and the Climate Summit in New York mark the beginning of a busy 18 months of crucial international negotiations. Climate negotiators will head to Lima, Peru, in December 2014 to make progress towards a global climate deal. Then, in September 2015 world leaders will meet back in New York to adopt the Sustainable Development Goals, the global post-2015 development agenda. Three months later, the world will gather in Paris to try and sign a new international climate treaty.
