Cyberactivists from around the world took action in a number of ways during 2009. Here are some of the highlights.
Agrofuels campaign highlights in 2008
The main goal of FoEI's agrofuels campaign is to halt the development, production and trade of agrofuels, which is threatening food sovereignty and biodiversity, and has been shown to be a false solution to the climate crisis.
disclosing the truth, building awareness and mobilizing against corporate abuses
In 2008, FoEI continued campaigning on specific corporations in sectors that harm the environment. This entailed research and monitoring of EU-based companies working in the oil and gas, agrofuels and forest extraction sectors, and their actions in the South.
focusing on the links between industrial agriculture and trade
In 2008, FoE groups from all regions compiled case studies focused on defending territories and land rights from agribusiness and controversial agricultural expansions, such as deforestation for palm plantations in Asia or land evictions for soy and tree monocultures in South America.
Food Sovereignty Program highlights
The Food Sovereignty Program’s objective is to resist and expose industrial corporate-led agriculture and promote food sovereignty.
Food Sovereignty Program highlights in 2008
In 2008, FoEI’s Food Sovereignty Program contributed effectively to the implementation of the agenda agreed by the food sovereignty movement at the Nyeleni Forum, (the first International Forum for Food Sovereignty organized in Selingue, Mali, in February 2007).
Climate justice and energy program highlights
The CJE Program’s overall objective is to build a diverse, effective and global movement for climate justice. Climate justice is a right-based approach to the climate crisis with holds those historically responsible for the climate crisis to account. Climate justice demands structural changes to tackle neo-liberalism and radically reduce consumption. In keeping with FoEI’s mission to influence policies and policy dialogue, the CJE Program also aims to ensure that by rich industrialized Annex I countries commit to needed emissions reductions, and appropriate and sufficient financing and transfers of technology to help developing countries mitigate and adapt to climate change, allowing a just transition to sustainable, fossil-free societies.
england, wales and northern ireland: people change politics with the big ask
Back in 2005, few politicians paid any serious attention to the idea of a national law committing the UK to legally-binding reductions in its greenhouse gas emissions. Yet it seemed most unlikely that the UK would meet its reduction commitments without a framework within which real action could happen. Party politics also needed to be removed from the equation, to stop the government simply leaving an ever more difficult task to be dealt with by future administrations.
