Indian Coordination Committee of Farmers Movements
Bangalore, Nov-29- 2010
Sustainable agriculture Cools the Planet! System Change not Climate Change!
We Indian farmers movements under the banner of the ICCFM comprising of farmers organizations from all over India such as Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha (Karnataka), Bhartiya Kisan Union (North India), Thamizhaga Vivasayigal Sangam (Tamil Nadu) and Kerala Coconut Farmers Association (Kerala) are protesting on the occasion of the COP 16 climate negotiations of the UNFCC in Cancun, Mexico.
We stress that the climate negotiations have totally failed to bring about any real solution to the climate crisis and ever since the last UNFCCC meeting in Copenhagen it has become even more clear that any real change will only come from a peoples movement and not diplomatic negotiations.

LO QUE ESTA EN JUEGO EN CANCUN
Entre los días 3 y 7 de diciembre próximos, tendrá lugar en Cancún, México, la Conferencia de Naciones Unidas sobre Cambio Climático (COP 16).
Lo que está en juego es ni más ni menos que la preservación del planeta Tierra como hogar de la especie humana, hoy grave y definitivamente amenazado por las formas depredadoras que ha adoptado el sistema económico, la producción militar industrial, la industria agroalimenticia, el desarrollo urbano, etc., es decir, lo que se ha denominado “capitalismo salvaje”.
