Call To Action To The Entire Community!

We urge all groups including schools, neighborhood associations, organizations, clubs, churches, and groups of all kinds to adopt a Climate Declaration.  Adopt ours or write your own.  Our declaration is not copyrighted.  We encourage everyone to use or edit this writing as their own.  Share your Climate Declaration with local governments, the media, write articles, and share information.
 

Occupy Sonoma County Climate Declaration

Occupy Sonoma County, along with concerned, forward thinking people all over the world, declares that climate change has reached catastrophic proportions as evidenced by the current level of CO2 in the atmosphere, the melting of polar ice caps, and the continual rising of global temperatures.  This is a global emergency, and we must act immediately.​  We invite all forces of life to join together for our survival.  We stand up for life.

We recognize that the root of climate change is a capitalist system run by money greedy corporations and the governments that they control.  We actively oppose greenhouse gas producers, nuclear power investors, and fossil fuel companies by boycotting their products, developing alternatives, divesting from corporations that endorse them and insisting that governments at all levels take action.  We call on all governments and corporations to adopt life-sustaining practices immediately.

The people must act now to stop this destruction from continuing and reverse the damage this has caused​.  The future is in our handsWe are the 99%!

 

GMOs

Genetic engineering refers to a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of cells and move genes across species boundaries to produce novel organisms. Once released, these genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can easily spread and interbreed with other organisms, and they are virtually impossible to recall back to the laboratory.

Monsanto provides roughly 90% of GMO seeds in the world. These seeds have been genetically modified to produce their own pesticide or to survive repeated spraying of Monsanto’s toxic herbicide Roundup. Monsanto’s GMOs are not designed to increase yields to feed the world, but rather to increase Monsanto’s profits. Monsanto sells high-priced, patented seeds to farmers who are required to sign contracts stating that they will buy new seeds every year. And as their crops become increasingly herbicide-resistant, Monsanto sells more and more chemicals to farmers who are caught in this vicious cycle. Due to the enormous political clout of Monsanto, the American public is being denied the right to know whether their foods are genetically engineered or not.

Earth Action

The fossil fuel industry, from pipelines to fracking, coal, and nuclear power, has put our planet on a dangerous collision course that must be corrected immediately. Earth Action Campaigns like ours are mobilizing against big money and special interests that are creating a global emergency, but we can win because we are the 99%!

Sonoma County Climate Activist Network (SoCoCAN!)

On July 31, 2017 Occupy Sonoma County organized a Sonoma County Climate Activists Summit. 73 people attended representing 24 climate activist groups in Sonoma County. We agreed to continue meeting and our network has been supporting the campaigns of the groups attending.​
The name of that group is Sonoma County Climate Activist Network (SoCoCAN!). Look for us on Facebook and Twitter. We have adopted a spokes council structure, asking each group to send one or more people to each meeting so that we can network and coordinate.
The network has coordinated three campaigns together in the past year: a green rebuild campaign after the fires that we had here in Sonoma County last October, a mass mobilization with buses to attend the climate march in San Francisco in September, and an all-electric ready new buildings proposal that is being seriously considered by Santa Rosa city council. We also supported a successful new municipal composting project.
We are all much more effective when we work together as a network! #SoCoCAN! https://www.facebook.com/SonomaCountyCAN  https://twitter.com/SonomaCAN

Agricultura y transgénicos
El desarrollo de enfermedades, la desaparición de insectos, la toxicidad de nuestras aguas y tierras, la deforestación, la contribución al cambio climático… Hay demasiadas consecuencias negativas tras el uso de la agricultura industrial y los transgénicos. Dicho esto, ¿sabías que España es el país de Europa en el que más cultivos de este tipo se siembran?

Monsanto asume su derrota y se comienza a retirar de Europa
La compañía multinacional detendrá la producción de maíz modificado genéticamente en toda Europa, salvo en España, Portugal y República Checa.

Millones Contra Monsanto
La Campaña Millones Contra Monsanto fue iniciada por ACO (Asociación de Consumidores Orgánicos) para contrarrestar el abuso de la biotecnología de Monsanto, defenderla agricultura campesina, la soberanía alimentaria, la alimentación tradicional y las semillas originarias.

Patrick Moore, desafiado a beber un vaso de glifosato

Patrick Moore, un lobbista de Monsanto, en una entrevista con el Canal+ francés, afirmó que el glifosato, ingrediente utilizado en sus herbicidas, no está detrás del incremento de las tasas de cáncer en Argentina. "Usted puede tomar casi un litro y no le hará daño". Revise en este video qué pasó cuando el periodista le ofrece un vaso de pesticida.
