5 Feb at OccupyLSX – How the global 1% is trashing the planet and stealing your future

 
 
SUNDAY 5 FEBRUARY 2012 
2 – 4 pm

Tent City University, Occupy London Stock Exchange, St Paul’s, London.

George Monbiot
Helena Paul, Econexus 
Claire Morris, Youth Climate Alliance
Shahrar Ali, Green Party
Suzanne Jeffery, Campaign against Climate Change Trade Union Group
Asad Rehman, Friends of the Earth

The 1% are carrying on with “business as usual” regardless of the social and economic costs – or the environmental costs, for the 99%. This panel discussion will explore how climate change is not some abstract future threat, but is already killing thousands each year of those in countries which have no power and no voice on the world stage.
Even in “rich” countries, the 99% are already paying the price of climate change through higher food and energy prices, and this situation can only get worse unless we make our economy sustainable for the long term good of all, and give ordinary people real power over the decisions which affect them.

  1. Everyone reading this is in the Global 1%.

     
  2. The 99% of us who have to suffer for the wims of the 1%,need to start our own political party,one that is not tied to greedy businessmen and women,like the three main parties.

     
  3. Dear OccupyLSX

    I’m seeing a lot of articles about other people’s protests, evictions etc… on here, but can’t help noticing there is not a single mention of the RBS bonus situation.

    Seems strange to me, as I thought this movement was focused on the Economy and Democracy and people turning down bonuses seems like a massive step in the right direction.

    So, what happened? When did it turn into a protest about the right to protest? When did it become an advertising board for everyone else’s issues? Why has it seemingly followed the process of every other protest and started looking inwards and crying about its treatment by people you’d never expect good treatment from?

    Where is the manifesto? What’s the plan? How are the general public supposed to find something to support, let alone get involved in decisions? Is this about changing things or digging in until a tent is considered an offensive weapon?

    Perhaps it’s time for a debrief?
