    A warm invitation to all those interested, and present in World Social
    Forum 2015 in Tunis.
    Hopefully, there is a list of the different organizations holding climate
    /ecology related discussions/
    self-organized events during WSF 2015, including the 23-24 Coaltion
    Climate21 and the
    Climate Space events.
    If anyone has compiled any such list, can you kindly circulate ?
    It is inevitable that some similar-focus discussions will overlap in time,
    but here is the invitation
    to you all - to several such events being organized jointly by SADED (South
    Asian Dialogues on
    Ecological Democracy),  VK (Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam), SIEMENPU (the Finnish

    Challenge the official propaganda that climate change crisis is
    "anthropogenic". Just by being human, by living in a human society - we
    have not created the climate crisis. This is a "gift" of the dominant
    industrial capitalist 'System', and should be identified as such - a
    "systemic" origin crisis. There are many smaller societies who still live
    within the limits set by nature, who use 'resources' but do not plunder
    nature. And unless the capitalist logic of endless growth is thrown out and
    replaced by a nature-respecting, equity oriented, just political economy,
    there is no possibility of stopping catastrophic climate crisis, or the
    many other crises that it has spawned.
