Feature story - February 13, 2013 Environmental NGOs Earthlife, groundwork, and Greenpeace have suspended their participation in Eskom’s NGO forum following reports that Eskom contracted an intelligence company to spy on the organisations.

"Eskom’s shocking move highlights the deep rot within the organisation that takes us back to the dark days of apartheid. If we cannot trust Eskom’s leadership to deal openly with those that are pushing it towards sustainable practices, how can we trust them with such an important asset as our energy provision? We demand a change of Eskom’s leadership", said groundWork’s Director Bobby Peek. The organisations have received documents exposing correspondence between SA’s utility monopoly and Swartberg Intelligence Services. "Eskom has demonstrated that it is a completely unscrupulous organisation both in terms of its energy choices and ethical standards," said Michael O'Brien Onyeka, Greenpeace Africa's Executive Director.

People walk by graffiti showing late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, as they head to pay their final respects during Chavez's funeral ceremony at the military academy in Caracas, Venezuela, March 11, 2013. (Photo: Mauricio Lima / The New York Times) Since news broke last week of the death of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, reactions to that leader’s passing have been pouring in. While many argue that Chavez did incredible things for Venezuela and its people, there are those, especially here in the US, who don’t have such a rosy view of the former leader. That’s where Associated Press business reporter Pamela Sampson comes in. In a piece from last Tuesday, speaking about the legacy of Chavez, Sampson wrote that, “Chavez invested Venezuela's oil wealth into social programs including state-run food markets, cash benefits for poor families, free health clinics and education programs.

Les représentants gouvernementaux réunis à Hyderabad discuteront de la mise en œuvre des décisions prises au sommet de la biodiversité de Nagoya en 2010, et en particulier des suites qui ont été données au Plan stratégique pour la biodiversité et aux Objectifs d’Aichi 2020 établis à l’occasion de ce sommet en matière de sauvegarde et de restauration de la nature. « Nous avons à préserver cet élan.

Big Plan for nature needs Big Action now. 08 October 2012 | News story Governments must take action and invest in nature to secure the diversity of life on earth and address today’s development challenges – urges IUCN at the 11th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP11), which starts today in Hyderabad, India.

Governments meeting in Hyderabad will discuss implementation of the decisions taken at the Nagoya Biodiversity Summit in 2010, including the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity and its 2020 Aichi Targets to save and restore nature. “In Nagoya, we agreed the Big Plan with ambitious yet realistic targets to save our planet’s biodiversity,” says Julia Marton-Lefèvre, IUCN Director General. “We need to keep the momentum going.

Résistance au nouvel ordre mondial. An Addition to the Climate Movement-Civil Disobedience Toolkit. Protesters engage in civil disobedience at the White House to demonstrate against the Keystone XL pipeline. (Photo: Cool Revolution) On February 13, 48 of the nation's environmental and civil rights leaders got arrested in front of the White House to draw attention to climate change and the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline.

Many dubbed the action "civil disobedience. " Four days later some 40,000 people followed with peaceful protest. Peaceful protest, a tactic utilized by the civil rights movement, has been introduced into the climate movement. Civil disobedience is the conscious refusal to obey an unjust law. Oil and gas corporations to extract, transport and sell North American fossil fuel were arrested for blocking a throughway in front of the White House.

Libérer les 30 de l'Arctique. Manifestations pour libérer les activistes de Greenpeace retenus en Russie. © GreenpeaceVideo. Depuis le 18 septembre, 28 militants de Greenpeace et deux journalistes qui travaillaient avec eux sont emprisonnés en Russie. Ils ont été arrêtés pour s’être opposés aux projet de forage en Arctique, pour avoir défendu le climat de la planète.

Accusés tout d’abord de piraterie, ils ont ensuite été accusés de « hooliganisme » et risquent 7 ans de prison. Bien entendu, aucune de ces deux accusations ne tient debout. Tous les écologistes de la planète se sentent solidaires de ces militants, dont certains sont emprisonnés dans des conditions difficiles. Car le geste des autorités russes – complètement disproportionné par rapport aux actes et aux intentions des militants de Greenpeace – s’adresse à tous les militants, quelque soit leur cause, quelque soit leur nationalité.

Leak of Identities & Emails of Rich Hiding *$32 Trillion* Offshore. Interview de Richard O'Barry. Richard O’Barry, ancien dresseur des cinq dauphins ayant joué Flipper, est devenu l’un des plus fervents et des plus actifs militants anti-captivité. Il est aujourd’hui à l’affiche du documentaire The Cove, qui dévoile les massacres de dauphins perpétrés dans la baie de Taiji, au Japon.

J’ai eu la chance de l’interviewer puis de le rencontrer devant le delphinarium de Bruges, à l’occasion de la semaine internationale du dauphin captif en 2004. Durant cet entretien, il m’a expliqué les raisons de son engagement, ainsi – entre autres – que ses points de vue sur diverses questions concernant l’intelligence, la captivité ou encore l’utilisation militaire des dauphins. Ric O’Barry : J’ai commencé à travailler avec les dauphins en 1961. J’étais l’entraîneur principal des dauphins et des orques du Seaquarium de Miami. Ric O’Barry : J’ai capturé les cinq dauphins qui jouaient le rôle de Flipper. Ric O’Barry : Cathy est morte dans mes bras. Ric O’Barry : J’ai été dans la Navy de 1955 à 1960. . Leaks reveal secrets of the rich who hide cash offshore | UK news. Millions of internal records have leaked from Britain's offshore financial industry, exposing for the first time the identities of thousands of holders of anonymous wealth from around the world, from presidents to plutocrats, the daughter of a notorious dictator and a British millionaire accused of concealing assets from his ex-wife.

The leak of 2m emails and other documents, mainly from the offshore haven of the British Virgin Islands (BVI), has the potential to cause a seismic shock worldwide to the booming offshore trade, with a former chief economist at McKinsey estimating that wealthy individuals may have as much as $32tn (£21tn) stashed in overseas havens.

It emerges as Hollande is mired in financial scandal because his former budget minister concealed a Swiss bank account for 20 years and repeatedly lied about it. It Is Time to Recognize the National Sovereignty and Human Rights of Native Indians. A Native American pow-wow in Taos, New Mexico, July 12, 2009. (Photo: Jim Nix / Flickr)Recently we wrote about the need to transform US foreign policy from one that is dominating and militaristic to one that is based on diplomatic relations.

US Empire is not sustainable because of its tremendous cost in dollars and its impacts on the environment and lives of people all over the world. We asked if it might be possible to dismantle US Empire in a responsible way that would cause the least harm. We often think of US Empire acting on the global stage through occupations and wars abroad, but the longest-running manifestation of US imperialism is the illegal occupation of portions of the United States and denial of the sovereignty of Native Indians, which continues today.

In the past century, efforts by Native Indian nations to achieve recognition of signed treaties have been thwarted. During the past year, the Native Indian movement has been reinvigorated. Stripping Away Native Indian Rights. Pierre Bourdieu. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Vous lisez un « bon article ». Pour les articles homonymes, voir Bourdieu. Pierre Bourdieu Pierre Bourdieu (1930-2002) est l'un des sociologues français les plus importants de la deuxième moitié du XXe siècle et qui, à la fin de sa vie, devint, par son engagement public, l’un des acteurs principaux de la vie intellectuelle française. Sa pensée a exercé une influence considérable dans les sciences humaines et sociales[1], en particulier sur la sociologie française d’après-guerre.

Sociologie du dévoilement, elle a fait l’objet de nombreuses critiques, qui lui reprochent en particulier une vision déterministe du social dont il se défendait. Son œuvre sociologique est dominée par une analyse des mécanismes de reproduction des hiérarchies sociales. Biographie[modifier | modifier le code] Il est le père du réalisateur Emmanuel Bourdieu.
