Proposal for a Call for ICOR Environmental Day of Struggle 2017

Active resistance worldwide against the attack of the imperialist rulers of the world on humanity and nature – For saving the natural environment from profit economy!, ICOR (International Coordination of Revolutionary Parties & Organizations), November 11, 2017

 The 23rd UN World Climate Conference will meet in Bonn (Germany) from 6 to 17 November. The ICOR (International Coordination of Revolutionary Parties and Organizations) welcomes the international large-scale demonstration in Bonn and worldwide militant protest activities against the capitalist destruction of the environment taking place on 11 November, the world climate day of action and the ICOR environmental day of struggle. It will actively participate in organizing it and thereby take up the joint experiences in struggle at the 22nd UN World Climate Conference in Morocco in 2016. The ICOR calls for international participation – because the threatening danger of a global climate and environmental catastrophe can only be averted collectively!

After the G20 summit in Hamburg/Germany in July 2017, the misleading impression arose as if the masses of the world only have the alternative between rabble-rouser Trump and the “moderate imperialists”. But the worldwide environmental movement should not fall in to this pseudo-alternative! With his frontal attack on hard-won climate and environmental protection measures Trump actually wants to counteract the massive relapse of US imperialism in worldwide competition. The Paris climate agreement itself, however, is a fraud with its non-binding declaration of intent and not suitable to save the world climate and the environment. You will search in vain for concrete and binding measures for climate protection in the “G20 Hamburg Climate and Energy Action Plan for Growth”. All the more the preamble deals with the “protection” of capitalist competitiveness. Furthermore, even environmentally destructive technologies like nuclear power and gas fracking are being promoted as apparent “alternatives” with express reference to the Paris climate agreement. The workers and the broad masses are also being suggested to believe that environmental protection and jobs are incompatible and that one or the other has to be sacrificed. It is social chauvinism to rely on one or the other imperialist, on one or the other corporation in the issue of peace, environment or jobs, or even to allow oneself to be used by them. Instead of this wrong way of fragmentation, the environmental movement has to continue to internationalize itself and to strengthen the unity of workers and peasants, workers and indigenous peoples, workers, women and youth.

Those in power are neither willing nor able to actually take serious steps to protect the natural environment, to combat the causes of flight, of poverty and mass unemployment. Because the leading corporations and imperialists of today's world are the real perpetrators of all of these problems! Protests and resistance against this are growing worldwide – because the masses do not want to decline in capitalist barbarism.

Determined immediate measures and especially a societal perspective of a liberated socialist society through the revolutionary overcoming of imperialism/capitalism are necessary – under the banner of the lessons of the 100th anniversary of the victorious Russian October Revolution.


Strengthen the ICOR and its member organizations! Become friends of ICOR!
