"Today democracy conquers fear", said Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras after casting his ‪#‎OXI‬-vote in Greece’s historic ‪#‎Greferendum‬. Here is the complete speech he gave to the press in Athens’ working class district of Kypseli, where he is registered to vote:
"Today is a day of celebration because democracy is a cause to celebrate, to be joyful. And when democracy conquers fear and blackmail, then it also leads to redemption, and a way forward.
Today, the Greek people send a very powerful message. A message of dignity, of determination. A message that they are taking control of their choices. Many may try to ignore the will of a government. But no one can ignore the will of a people who are seeking to live with dignity, to live life on their own terms.
Today, democracy trumps fear. Our people’s determination trumps fear. I am confident that tomorrow we will set a new course for all the peoples of Europe. One that will return us to Europe’s founding values of democracy and solidarity, and will send a strong message that we are determined to not only to remain in Europe but to also live with dignity in Europe. To prosper, to work as equals among equals.
Let us, then, take a decisive stand in support of democracy–for a better future for all of us, in Greece and Europe.
I am very hopeful."

I believe the Greeks will handle it, whatever the outcome, well.
“I call you to say again a big proud ‘no’ to ultimatums on Sunday!" "We can also say it in German: Nein, Frau Merkel, Nein.”

Join us in asking the Gates Foundation and Wellcome Trust to commit now to divesting from the top 200 fossil fuel companies within five years and to immediately freeze any new investments in those companies.

HOW IT WORKS

Using aggregated data, the Compact showcases overall GHG reduction contributions made by sub-national governments around the world. Then each year, disclosure and assessment of progress toward those commitments will take place through GHG inventory data.

Importantly, the Compact will support global climate negotiations by providing a clear and accurate picture of sub-national government contributions through reliable and publically available data. In fact, the first Compact of States and Regions disclosure report will be released at the 21st Conference of Parties to the UNFCCCC (COP21) in Paris, December 2015.

The Compact partners’ believe all state and regional governments – considering their different capabilities and circumstances – should measure GHG emissions and set ambitious reduction goals, because these are the pillars of a robust climate strategy.

By acting locally, the Compact proves that state and regional governments are global climate leaders. And this action is increasingly being recognized, particularly following the launch of the UNFCCC NAZCA platform (Non-state Actor Zone for Climate Action) at COP20 in Lima – which the Compact will supply data to.

"If we want a lower level of risk, we should be even more ambitious. After all, we're betting the planet ... We continue to be on a collision course with nature. As we continue to emit, the risks are becoming increasingly unpredictable and uninsurable." http://bit.ly/1LM90kJ
The secretary general of the OECD group of the world's 34 richest nations has issued a dramatic plea to its members to act now to end 'unabated coal' burning, writes Alex Kirby, and invest in renewables around the world to prevent climate disaster.

This guy on FB has an interesting comment:
Peter Anastasia While Bernie Sanders may label himself a socialist for convenience, he's basically a FDR Democrat that Democrats once stood for as champions of the working class before they were bought out and sold out. If you like Franklin D. Roosevelt, you're going like Bernie. For a politician, Bernie is untarnished and his own man unlike your typical representative on Capitol Hill. Bernie will have our backs and slow down our progression to the New World Order. Remember the NWO? Every politician running for Prez with the exception of Bernie is a paid shill and tool for the NWO. This could be our last chance to save ourselves from complete and total corporate hegemony and the culmination of the corporate neo fascist police and surveillance state. Behold a pale horse...
Need I say more?

I hope we can construct, together, ways to learn from one another, gaining deeper understanding of war’s consequences and more confident readiness to build a better world.

In this video Luke Rudkowski, Dan Dick's and Jeff Berwick give a rundown of their recent road trip in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. The discussion leads to important life lessons learned on this trip and how important it is to let go of fear.

The book is a collection of more than 30 articles published on the website in the first few months of the Arab uprisings. While not intended to be exhaustive, the book does offer a wide breadth of analysis geographically, and aims to address the silences or gaps in more mainstream analysis.
