EcoPaxMundiAgora.Org is Happy to Announce the 'United Beyond Gas' Tour

May 18, 2018

Around the world, people are resisting gas pipelines to defend their land, their livelihoods and their climate. And in Europe, plans to build a vast new network of gas pipelines would lock the region into fossil fuels for decades. Each of these struggles are connected, and to win, we need to work together.

This May-June 2018, join us for the "United Beyond Gas" speaker tour, a series of events to connect and strengthen the resistance against gas.

Among our incredible speakers, we will be joined by the spokesperson of indigenous communities in Mexico resisting the Tula-Tuxpan pipeline, local residents of Girona and Perpignan fighting the MidCat pipeline, and a journalist from Mexico exposing human rights abuses. We will share our experiences and connect our struggles.

Watch and share the launch video, find out more about the United Beyond Gas tour, the speakers and the resistance, and sign up to keep in touch at unitedbeyondgas.org

EcoPaxMundiAgora.Org Sides with SumOfUs.Org to Denounce the Destruction of the Rainforest on the Part of Multinationals such as Cadbury

March 28, 2018

Around Easter time, companies like Cadbury try to play up their wholesome image of a family-friendly chocolate company. The last thing Cadbury wants the public to know, is the dirty secret behind chocolate Easter eggs: the destruction of precious rainforests.

A study from our partner Mighty Earth shows: The cocoa used in Cadbury chocolate is grown illegally in national parks and protected areas all over the world. In some countries in West Africa, more than 90 percent of protected areas, such ...

EcoPaxMundiAgora.Org Is Part of This Vision

February 10, 2017

(Read the full article
We must develop as much self-sufficiency as we reasonably can, both at the national level, meaning much less international trade, but more importantly at local and household levels. We need to convert our presently barren suburbs into thriving economies which produce much of what they need from local resources.

Home gardens and mini-farms throughout suburbs would allow nutrients to be recycled back to the soil. Most of us could get to work by bicycle or on foot, and the...

Ed. note: This excerpt is taken from a longer paper by the authors, which can be found here.

In late 2015 the CSIRO released its Australian National Outlook (ANO) Report (‘the Report’) which outlined 20 future scenarios for Australia, exploring various global and national sustainability challenges. The Report’s main conclusion was that sustainability is compatiblewith continuous economic growth defined in terms of rising GDP and that consumerist valuesdo not need to be questioned.

But whi...

09 July 2015

The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in December will feature all the tightly choreographed production values of a Hollywood blockbuster. The cast will be huge: presidents and prime ministers at center stage, supported by thousands of extras, including protesters, riot police, and busloads of media. The script may still be under wraps, but the plot has already leaked: This time, in sharp contrast to the failed negotiations in Copenhagen in 2009, the plane...

Pope Francis’s encyclical takes on the Fossil Fuel Industry – and much more
18 June 2015

“Liberation Theology” or “Liberation Technology”?

Pope Francis’s sympathies for “Liberation Theology” – the radical Catholic message of Latin American clergy of the 1960s and 70s that called for social change – has been uncertain. He was a young priest when Liberation Theology was at its height and didn’t speak up when it fell out of favour with the Catholic hierarchy. In 201...

'Pope's climate change encyclical tells rich nations: pay your debt to the poor'

June 19, 2015

The Guardian, 19/06/2015
Pope Francis has called on the world’s rich nations to begin paying their “grave social debt” to the poor and take concrete steps on climate change, saying failure to do so presents an undeniable risk to a “common home” that is beginning to resemble a “pile of filth”.

The pope’s 180-page encyclical on the environment, released on Thursday, is at its core a moral call for action on phasing out the use of fossil fuels.

But it is also a document infused with...
