Eco Pax Mundi Agora Sides with Vijayendra for a May Day 2020 Resolution: Creating A Paradise on Earth at the Expense of Capitalism

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Monday, April 27, 2020, In : Re-embodiments politics 

This year Nature has given us a clear message. It sent us COVID 19 and halted capitalism for 4 months, made us stop burning fossil fuels and use just the bare essentials. And it has rewarded us with clean air, cleaned up our rivers and lakes, improved our human relations and restored wild life. There are dolphin in the Ganges in Kolkata and leopards are frolicking in our cities. Many birds have come back...

Eco Pax Mundi Agora Endroses the Earth Day Communiqué issued by Navdanya International

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Sunday, April 26, 2020, In : regenerative politics 
One could say that zoonotic viruses are one of multifarious Mother Nature's tongues to say 'learn to respect me!' and yet we insist on grossly penetrating her. 

The wet markets epitomise the 'very best' in human conduct: having rendered some species domesticated doesn't suffice. We need to subjugate the whole of Mother Nature to our fanciful whims. 

In this context, Navdanya International has issued an Earth Day Communiqué that is in utter consonance with Eco Pax Mundi Agora's remit. Hence Eco...

Covid-19 as a Stepping Stone Towards the Collective Rite of Passage into Adulthood that Humanity has to Undergo

Is COVID-19 a Collective Rite of Passage?

  posted in: Uncategorized |  1

Many transitions in human cultures are marked by rites of passage, such as baptisms, weddings, even funerals. And, during those transitions there is a moment when those involved are neither what they were, nor what they will become. At a wedding, the couple is not yet married, nor are they single. A child going through an adulthood ritual is not yet an adult, but is no longer a child. Even in a funer...

Covid-19 and a chance for sustainability

The following is the text of a very short talk I gave in my ‘green issues’ slot on local community radio in March 2020 on the lessons of the Covid-19 crisis and the chance to build a better society. Please feel free to recycle in your area


The Covid-19 crisis continues to dominate the news. The costs … the death toll… threatened livelihoods… the general dislocation… are painfully clear. But I want to put the current crisis in a wider context....

New from GRAIN | 1 April 2020

New research suggests industrial livestock, not wet markets, might be origin of Covid-19

There is a growing body of evidence that the origin of the current Covid-19 pandemic is not a wet market in Wuhan, as has been widely claimed. We now know that tests of the animals at the market came back negative and that the first reported case and many other initial cases had no connection to this market. We also now know, thanks to a newly released analysis of the genomic s...

'Dark Waters': Forever Chemicals

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, In : Activism 
Chemical multinationals have been coming up with a number of superb pieces of lab engineering. They are 'superb' because, unlike plastics that are only very good in comparison, these are chemicals that never break down. Once released, they are on the Planet to stay through the aeons unless willingly removed by human action. That's why they are dubbed 'forever chemicals'. There are some 8 of these chemicals so far on the Planet. They are highly noxious and carcinogenic. They run freely in our ...
