Global Greens Support Mauritian Greens in reparations claims for descendants of slaves

As a last recourse to a long battle started in 1989, an unlimited hunger strike has started on Sunday 6 October 2013 at the historical Company’s Garden, in Port-Louis, capital of Mauritius, by members of “Verts Fraternels” (Greens from Mauritious). They are claiming from all parties concerned (the Mauritian government and private sector, France, Great Britain and the Netherland) reparations for the Mauritian descendants of slaves, known locally as the Creoles, through a Green Reparation Foundation (GRF).

Egypt update: Global Greens urge immediate end of violence and restoration of democracy

The Global Greens utterly condemn the massacre perpetrated by the military against supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo, Alexandria and other centres in Egypt on 14 August 2013. The violent dissolution of the sit-ins in Al-Nahda Square and Raba’a al-Adawiyya demonstrates that the military forces in Egypt are not responding to the ongoing social and political crisis in Egypt in a democratic and peaceful manner. We call on the military government to halt the violence immediately and for the perpetrators to be brought to justice in accordance with international law and human rights.

Global Greens declare their support for Transparency and Protection of Citizens’ Privacy

The Global Greens strongly condemn the widespread indiscriminate espionage revealed by US whistleblower and former National Security Agency (NSA) employee, Edward Snowden, and declare their support for his courageous conduct. In revealing the existence of massive data surveillance and listening systems such as PRISM and Tempora operated by US secret services, often in cooperation with those of other countries, Mr Snowden has done the world a service. The Global Greens, the network of more than eighty Green parties around the globe, say it is totally unacceptable that fighting terrorism is used as a pretext to spy on entire populations and carry out mass diplomatic and commercial espionage.

Global Greens concern about attack on Pakistan Green

Pakistan Greens Chair Liaquat Ali Shaikh, his wife and driver were attacked at gunpoint and robbed on June 19, 2013 in Hyerabad city, Sindh province, Pakistan. This follows the murder of a Greens activist during the Greens’ election campaign. Preceding this campaign Liaquat Shaikh was kidnapped and held for a week to deter him from continuing in Green politics. The Global Greens express grave concern at this latest attack and call for the Pakistan authorities to investigate thoroughly, including to determine whether the attack was politically motivated.

The Global Greens strongly condemn this murder and call upon the Pakistani authorities to begin an immediate investigation into the crime and publish their findings. The Global Greens give our deepest sympathy to Mr Panhwer’s family, friends and colleagues.

Climate outlook worsens as Doha fails

The Doha meeting of parties to the UN Climate Convention failed to give the world hope or leadership on combating climate change, according to the Global Greens.

The meeting had no sense of urgency and made little real progress despite warnings by the World Bank and others that the world is heading for temperature rises of 4ºC or more.

The next three years are crucial to close the gap between the action needed to avoid catastrophic climate change and what is being offered by the world’s governments.

Global Greens call for urgency and commitment in Doha

As parties to the UN Climate Convention meet in Doha from 26 November to 7 December, the Global Greens note with alarm assessments from many major global institutions that the world is facing a climate catastrophe unless urgent action is taken.
