International Day of Climate Action in Eagle Rock (part 1) (tags)
In Eagle Rock, the 350 demonstration and public outreach had a turnout of at least 40 people. . . . In addition a large banner and colorful signs, a functioning solar cooker was displayed; and there was information about overpopulation; the significance of the number 350; literature from the Converging Storms Network; and a flyer announcing an upcoming screening of The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil, to be held in Glendale on December 4 (see: http://www.glendalepeacevigil.org/).
8.5-M US food aid to RP, Real Aid or Future Business Edge? (tags)
The United States on Monday announced it was giving $8.5 million (about P399 million) in food aid to the Philippines to help it recover from back-to-back storms that killed more than 900 people. But for the Pesante-USA, we ask is this real aid or just a Trojan horse for more benefits for the US in the future? Pesante said this comes at the heels of Tropical Storm “Ondoy” (international codename: Ketsana) last month triggered the worst flooding in Metro Manila in more than 40 years, and Tropical Storm “Pepeng” (Parma) early this month caused deadly landslides. The two storms killed 929 and flooded the homes of more than seven million people. The damage in agriculture alone has reached more than P21 billion. More than 25% of agriculture of the island of Luzon was destroyed in 27 provinces affected more than 20 million people. The twin disasters exposed the utter neglect and inutility of the US-Arroyo regime in handling the disasters and helping the people.
