The much-hyped Rio+20 Summit in Brazil has ended. The UN Conference on Biodiversity, aptly named, “The Future We Want,” (we being the environmentalist NGOs and other UN affiliates) was met with vociferous protests from thousands of women who were joined by hundreds of men.
As reported by AFP, advocates against the “green economy” and “green capitalism,” have gathered in Flamengo park for the People’s Summit, “a march of urban and rural women against this Rio+20 charade.”
According to AFP, a large banner of the international peasant movement Via Campesina proclaimed, “The peoples are against the mercantilization of nature.” Shouting, the group objected to “green capitalism” as a replacement for the current form of “failed capitalism,” choosing instead to back an economy based on “solidarity and people’s sovereignty.”
Having failed to convince an ever-growing population of skeptics across the earth that global warming is dooming the planet, the UN has changed its propaganda tactics to climate change and to biodiversity threat.
Wanting a greener and more sustainable future for the rest of us, whether we want it or not, the environmentalists are admitting that the 45,000 attendees and 100 world leaders achieved very little in their green agenda quest other than spending tens of millions of dollars in Rio.
