Join the urban farming movement

Green Prophet

Urban farming, whether found in large urban cities like Chicago , or in a Palestinian refugee camp near Bethlehem , is rapidly becoming a worldwide movement. All it really takes is a small, available plot of ground, an accessible rooftop on a warehouse or other urban building; or even a large balcony in a private home for growing a wide variety of fresh garden produce.

Why The Climate Movement Cannot Ignore Trade

Sierra Club Compass

As someone who has spent many years in the halls of Congress and United Nations climate conventions calling for strong climate action, this diverse, public, outspoken, and in-the-streets action was a beautiful, incredible feat that signals a tipping point in the climate movement that policymakers will not be able to ignore. But there is another tipping point that will affect the success of the climate movement: the free trade tipping point. Photo courtesy of Jim Wylie.

Alexei Navalny & the Anti-Corruption Movement in Russia

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) If we remember that the Maidan “demonstrations”, which led to the problems, which is still expressing it mildly, in the Ukraine also started claiming to be an anti-corruption movement. We can almost guarantee that one major player behind the scenes, and the main source of funds for Navalny and his “movement”, is the very same who has been behind the Ukraine issue and those color revolutions in many other countries.

The Party – the working class movement – is always right

Green (Living) Review

Basically the meaning is – the true one – that the movement, the party, is always right to fight against capitalism and imperialism, against injustices and for the right of the proletariat. That does not, however, mean that the movement, the party, can do no wrong on other levels; far from it. In all other aspects the party, or whatever kind of movement of the proletariat, must be open to criticism and be prepared to accept such criticism, where valid, and act accordingly.

How The Mainstream “Animal Movement” Has Destroyed Veganism

Eccorazzi

Ever wondered what the effects of the mainstream “animal movement” are on the public perception of veganism? The article talks a lot about something that doesn’t represent ethical veganism in the slightest, and that’s precisely because the mainstream movement has done such a good job convincing people that veganism isn’t representative of a fundamental moral position. I mentioned before that the word “vegan” is left open to interpretation by the mainstream “animal movement.”

The 'Right to Repair' Movement Is Being Led by Farmers

Green (Living) Review

The right to repair movement is an effort to loosen laws to allow consumers to be able to fix technology without sending it back to the original manufacturer. Farmers are pushing back against legislation that prevents them from fixing their own equipment. If successful, it will be a huge victory for consumers. A major national group has adopted a policy to fight for the right to repair electronics, but it might not be the one you'd expect: farmers.

Building Movement Solidarity -- We Stand with Migrants

Sierra Club Compass

By Flavia de la Fuente , Joseph Manning & Quentin James This nation has witnessed the immense energy and momentum that builds when young people rally around each other in the pursuit of justice and social progress.

It’s also a good time to reflect on the lessons that other movements can learn from Dr. King’s leadership. Seeing the hotel—exactly as it looked 45 years ago, and still a vivid image in my memory—I couldn’t help but think of all that environmentalists could accomplish if we could generate a similar kind of public passion and conviction that fueled the civil rights movement. What can we do to build a bigger movement for lasting change?

Not my Movement; Not my Orgs: Part 1

It’s no secret to those of us who promote nothing less than veganism and who speak up for the rights of all animals not to be treated as the supply to our demand that the large animal organisations don’t stand with us. Whether promoting some forms of animal use via meat reduction or vegetarianism, or perpuating the myth that there is such a thing as “humane treatment”, these large animal charities fail to represent the rights of the animals for whom they claim to advocate.

A Traditional Foods Movement: The Balance of Healthy Eating

Green (Living) Review

The traditional foods movement calls you back to the kitchen, and allows you to weave the connections between the food on your table, the time you take to prepare it and the farms that produce it. The traditional foods movement is a fad-free approach to cooking and eating that emphasizes nutrient-dense food, and values quality, environment and community over the convenience of processed products. There is a movement afoot to restore this way of eating.

Similarly, animal organisations often perpetuate tropes that are, and have been, used to oppress humans, and in doing so they are participating in injustice.
