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.

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.
