Come out to save the natural environment against the declaration of bankruptcy of the environmental policy of those in power!

ICOR Call for the International Day of Struggle to Save the Natural Environment on 12 November 2016, 22 october 2016


The “climate treaty“ of the Paris UN climate conference of December 2015 is a farce. The climate warming that has already taken place is approaching the figure of 1.5°C.  This is supposed to work with “voluntary self-commitment declarations“ of the states. They actually allow a further increase of greenhouse gas emissions from presently 36 to 55 gigatons until the year 2030! Those in power are proving themselves to be neither willing nor capable of taking serious measures for the lasting protection of the natural environment.

After three years in a row of rising record temperatures, the year 2016 is again the warmest year ever recorded with +1.3°C above the preindustrial era. However, not only the climate crisis has dramatically intensified: an ozone hole is also developing above the northern hemisphere. The tropical rainforests would be completely destroyed by 2030. Droughts, regional flood catastrophes and the destruction of the nutritional bases of humankind are accelerating.

The ICOR is promoting that the growing criticism of the masses of the willful and unscrupulous policies of international finance capital and of imperialist governments leads to building up an international front of active resistance for the protection of the natural environment. That requires the firm fighting unity of the working-class and the environmental movements to develop further. The masses do not want to perish in barbarism and put up resistance against further operation and construction of nuclear power plants. There is a worldwide struggle of thousands of workers, peasants, environmentalists against the environmentally destructive mining of raw materials, land-grabbing, destruction of forests, in international social movements against imperialist free trade agreements...

The ICOR demands, among other things, a radical reduction in greenhouse gas emissions! Shut down all nuclear power plants at the expense of the operators – worldwide!

The struggle for immediate measures requires a societal perspective: “Save the environment from the profit economy – revolutionary solutions are necessary!“ In the coming year 2017 there is the 100th anniversary of the victorious Socialist October Revolution in Russia. The solution of the environmental question today more than ever also requires an evaluation of the achievements, successes and problems of this struggle and the building of a liberated socialist society and conclusions from its betrayal.

The ICOR calls up to prepare and conduct militant manifestations and broad unities of action worldwide of workers, peasants, women, youth, environmentalists, etc. on the occasion of this year's international environmental day of struggle, the 12th of November 2016. It mobilizes to the protest activities on the occasion of the 22nd UN climate conference in Marrakesh/Morocco.
