The false image of Korean MB(MyungBak) government on climate

There is nothing negative known about Korean government's environmental policies on the international level. Rather, because of scarcity of communication, as well as interest on the country or the issue, the mass destruction of local natural environment is anticipated.

The government is suspected to hide the total budget of so-called 'the four River restoration plan', which is important to estimate how big the plan will be, how much time it will take to finish the plan. In these articles, written by media activists in Korea, dealt with the government's river development plan and what impact it will have on the people's lives and on the environment. It ought to be considered as a conflict against exploitation of the natural resources for economic development.

There will be actions in Copenhagen this December, but more pressure to cancel the plan is needed.

Struggle News #7 (June 30, 2009)

June 24, Wed - The government Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism
announced plans to screen a film entitled "Daehan News Plan for the
Four Major Rivers Restoration Project," which will be screened in 52
theaters on 190 screens nationwide for one month, beginning on June 25,
last Thursday. However, the government gave no information about which
theaters will be screening the propaganda film.

Call for anti-capitalist analyses of the COP15

Call for anti-capitalist analyses of the COP15

A group of people involved in the mobilization for the upcoming UN
Climate Summit in Copenhagen in December - the COP 15, are putting
together an anthology of radical analyses of international climate
politics. The idea is to link what´s going on in the COP-process with
other dimensions of the capitalist system – i.e. immigration politics,
the construction of the EU security architecture, industrialized food
production, the WTO and free trade laws, colonialism, patriarchy and
racism, industrialized society, workplace struggles and much more.

 

As part of the mobilization towards Copenhagen, we see developing
and spreading these analyses as an absolutely crucial part in the
resistance against the legitimization show being put on by the elite.
 

We believe the climate crisis to be just one aspect of a bigger and
already long present crisis, capitalism itself.

With this anthology we
would like to deepen the understanding of how the elite power structure
tackles the climate crisis and how that in turn influences our
different struggles against the system. The climate crisis issue is in
desperate need of being re-politicized and discussed structurally,
since those in power have been putting massive efforts into changing
the focus towards details of science and levels of CO2 in the
atmosphere.

 

We are looking for submissions on a variety of topics which span
the spectrum of resistance.  If you are interested in writing an
article for this zine, please send us an email at cop15zine@riseup.net
with an idea of the topic on which you would like to write (public PGP
key provided below if you would like to use encryption).  the deadline
for submissions is October 1st, and articles should be 1.000-2.000
words.  Also, if you are interested in helping distribute this zine
across Europe, let us know!  Keep fighting and see you in December!
