If you care about the world you live in, and you photograph it, your images are needed! Together we can collectively re-imagine our world by building a powerful new ‪#‎activistphoto‬ image collection—a new window on environmental and social injustices and the many alternative options we have!

CALL FOR ENTRY—LAST WEEK!
Enter Critical Information Collective’s first photography competition, and show the world what environmental and social justice looks like from your perspective. There are 4 themes—Buen Vivir, climate change, energy justice and food sovereignty—and separate categories for activists and professionals. The deadline is 28 February (and you keep copyright and control over your images). Winning images will be exhibited in Paris during the UNFCCC climate change negotiations in December! All accepted images are eligible for inclusion in CIC’s image library.

Don’t forget you can also submit images to CIC's image library at any time, and you can sign up and download campaign images too. http://photos.criticalcollective.org/index.php?module=menu&pId=101&page_name=competition

The U.S  government and multinational corporations like Monsanto, are seeking to open new markets for GMOs that have been rejected by so many around the globe. Their target? Africa
The most persistent myth about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is that they are necessary to feed a growing global population. Highly effective marketing campaigns have drilled it into our heads that GMOs will produce more food on less land in an environmentally friendly manner. The mantra has been repeated so often that it is considered to be truth. Now this mantra has come to Africa, sung by the United States government and multinational ...

Global Divestment day takes place on February 13-14 http://gofossilfree.org/divestment-day/ 
Naomi Klein reminds us of the importance of a far reaching climate movement! 
Climate activists need to team up with the anti-austerity movement, labor, transit advocates, and all the other folks fighting the good fight.

Friends of the Earth US: In a small Indonesian village, a palm oil company called PT SIL displaces and impoverishes local farmers to grow palm oil for sale on the global market. 

Brief interviews with villagers offer a window into the ways that palm oil plantations destroy livelihoods and undermine human rights.

Almost 200 civil society organisations from across South East Asia and Latin America have called on #EU decision-makers to halt the devastating impacts of EU #biofuels policy on people and the environment.

But the organisations say biofuels policies have devastating and often irreversible consequences including land grabs, hunger, rising greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation.
Ahead of a crucial EU vote on capping biofuel quotas on Tuesday, almost 200 civil society organisations from across South East Asia and Latin America have called on EU decision-makers to halt the deva
