I’m tired of watching the #world end. It’s time to get radical on the #climate #crisis

Every morning I wake up and watch the world end. I’m aware this seems melodramatic. However, it’s the cold, hard truth. We use the phrases 'climate crisis' and 'climate emergency' not because we wish to ignite fear, but because they are accurate.
...
Too often, the steps we must take to curb the climate crisis are dismissed as too radical, too costly, too inconvenient. Compared to what? Is making ecocide an international #crime more radical than allowing the ocean to catch fire because it’s profitable for Big #Oil? Is stopping fossil fuel subsidies more radical than logging 2,000-year-old cedars on Vancouver Island? Is investing in a just transition to a sustainable economy for all workers more radical than bulldozing sacred sites and forcing oil pipelines through Indigenous burial grounds at gunpoint?

Der Bundestag hat heute den Einsatz von #Staatstrojaner.n ausgeweitet bzw. nachträglich legalisiert.

Weil dafür #Sicherheitslücken offen gehalten werden, macht das *alle* Computer unsicherer.

The Role of the U.S. Military in #World #Politics


Undeniably, the U.S. #military liberated #Europe from #fascism. Only because of this could very bad #war criminals be punished.

However, today, in contrast, one must ask how many tyrants have been brought to power by the U.S. military or can hold on to power because of it.

Pressemitteilung von Ärzte gegen Tierversuche e.V.

Ärzte gegen Tierversuche e.V. hat in einer Video-Konferenz drängende Fragen zu Tierversuchen in der Corona-Forschung beantwortet.

Kernbotschaft der halbstündigen Konferenz ist unter anderem, dass aktuell zwar zahlreiche Tierversuche für die Corona-Forschung durchgeführt werden, diese aber keine wesentliche Rolle gespielt haben. Es gibt keine Tierart, die die komplexen Corona-Symptome des Menschen mit dem Befall zahlreicher Organe entwickelt. Impf-Versuche mit künstlich infizierten Mäusen und Ratten können keine verlässliche Auskunft darüber geben, ob die Vakzine sie zu schützen vermögen.

Die Tatsache allein, dass für die Corona-Impfstoff Tierversuche durchgeführt wurden, sollte aber niemand davon abhalten, sich impfen zu lassen.

Unabdingbar sei zudem, dass der Mensch mit der globalen gigantischen Tierausbeutung aufhöre, denn drei Viertel aller neu auftretender Krankheitserreger verursachen Zoonosen, also Krankheiten, die vom Tier auf den Menschen überspringen. Diese Übertragungen sind vor allem bedingt durch unseren unsäglichen Umgang mit Tieren, den unersättlichen Fleischhunger und die uferlose Umweltzerstörung. Wenn wir so weitermachen wie bisher, züchten wir uns längst die nächste Pandemie heran, so das Fazit des Ärztevereins.

Nasrin Sotudeh, Iranian human rights activist lawyer was told to return back to prison today!


She was given permission to leave the prison after her long hunger strike that almost took her life, to be able to receive medical care, but today she was told to go back to prison by tomorrow.

She is still very fragile after losing almost 1/3rd of her weight during her hunger strike and this will stop her badly needed treatment.

دوستان و فعالان حقوق بشر
به من گفتند تا به زندان برگردم و من امروز به زندان بر‌می‌گردم. جایی که صدها هم‌بندی را گذاشته بودم و آمده بودم. جایی که دلم جا مانده بود. همیشه اینطور است دوست ندارم در چنین شرایطی بگویم که در این سه هفته چگونه به دلیل بیماری کرونا، نتوانستم فرزندانم را در آغوش بگیرم.
اما وظیفه دارم نگرانی خود را در مورد وضعیت احمد رضا جلالی اعلام کنم و از همه‌ی کسانی که امکاناتی برای حمایت دارند، بخواهم تا به وضعیت پرونده‌ی احمد رضا جلالی توجه نمایند.
احمد رضا جلالی را آزاد کنید، همین امروز

No Profit on Pandemic! Everyone deserves protection from COVID-19


European Citizens’ Initiative wants to collect 1 million signature to lift the patents on COVID19 pharmaceuticals
https://eci.ec.europa.eu/015/public/#/screen/home

A broad coalition of health worker trade unions, NGOs, activist groups, students associations and health experts launched on November 30th a European Citizens’ Initiative. Their objective is to convince the European Commission to put all measures in place to make sure that intellectual property rights, such as patents, do not limit the availability of treatments and vaccines against COVID-19.

A European Citizens’ Initiative allows European citizens to introduce legislative proposals if they collect 1 million signatures in 1 year. This binding initiative adds another voice to the concern expressed by civil society groups, public health experts and world leaders that newly developed vaccines and treatments might only be available for a small part of the population due to financial and logistical barriers.

The organisers state that pharmaceutical companies should be obliged to share the results of their research with other institutions to speed up the production of doses globally, and to lower the cost significantly, as has been proposed by India and South Africa at the World Trade Organisation. They also demand that the negotiations take place in full transparency.

"It is misleading when pharmaceutical companies state that they are offering the vaccine at a low price, or when governments say it will be free of charge for citizens”, reacts Anne Delespaul, spokesperson of the initiative and Belgian doctor, “As if we are not paying it all. However, The research and development was largely funded with public money by the European Union. But we are not getting any public control on the actual price, effectiveness and production costs. This way citizens, tax payers, social security and health systems pay twice : once for the development via public funding and a second time for the revenues of Big Pharma.

There is no reason why, in the midst of a pandemic and economic crisis, societies should contribute to shareholders profits. Our health systems are already overburdened.”

The launching date, November 30th, is not a coincidence. Anne Delespaul: “This is the eve of World Aids Day, when we show support for people living with and affected by HIV. Millions of people died because they couldn’t afford treatment and protection. After a decades-long battle, pharmaceutical companies were forced to drop their patents. But the world simply can’t afford to wait this long.”
