Global Greens welcome International Court of Justice whaling decision

The Global Greens whole-heartedly welcome this week’s ruling by the International Court of Justice to end Japan’s so-called ‘scientific’ whaling in Antarctic waters and not grant future permits under the current research programme. In response to a case started by Australia in 2010, the Court found that Japan’s whaling program in the Southern Ocean was not scientific and was therefore illegal under the rules of the International Whaling Commission. This decision is the culmination of a decades-long campaign by Greens and community groups to stop commercial whaling in the Southern Ocean and allow whale populations to recover. The Japanese government has said it will abide by the Court’s ruling and the Greens hope that this will mark the beginning of the end of commercialwhaling world-wide.

Global Greens statement on the Iran Nuclear Agreement

In November 2013, Iran, the US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany, known as the P5+1, reached an interim agreement to halt Iran’s nuclear program for six months in return for the easing of sanctions on Iran. This nuclear deal has the potential to transform Iran’s international relations and enhance Middle East stability. The Global Greens cautiously welcome the agreement as a first step towards greater stability, peace and well-being for the people of Iran, the Middle East and the globe.

Chevron-Texaco and the environmental disaster in the Amazon

Chevron-Texaco quit Equador in 1992 after discharging over 18.5 billion gallons of toxic water into the rainforest in the previous 8 years, in one of the world’s greatest environmental disasters. In 2011, an Ecuadorian court sentenced Chevron to pay $9.6 billion, rising to $18bn without a public apology. Chevron refused to apologize and has never paid the damages. Global Greens endorse the European Greens Resolution "Chevron - Texaco and the environmental disaster in the Amazon".

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.
