Greenpeace Crisis

Passed some enthusiasms (not too many) after the G20 Summit, doubts and critics. What to do more against the crisis? It is the best way to face it? The social democracy will save again to foolish Capitalism? In the middle of that temptation to change something, but that everything continues into the hands of those of always, one has said that the G20 summit has been like Breton Woods, when in the middle of the forty of the past century the world was rearranged (still in war), eliminated the rest of the depression of the 29 and the economy was relaunched. Nothing else far from the reality. Those days were 21 days of work and were inclusive: 44 countries of a world with less States participated (not yet the decolonization in Asia and Africa had begun). In addition, they generated new institutions multilateral and they created new rules to organize the world-wide economy. However, the G-20 as soon as it seems to renew nothing; still it trusts the financial institutions that they imposed the neoliberal dogma took that us to the disaster.

In addition, in the document of conclusions and commitments, does not appear a single time inequality , poverty or hunger, as the university professor notices itself of economy Juan Towers, although still dies daily 30,000 human beings by severe undernourishment. Some is no reference to ethical principles either, although the crisis has caused to a great extent practical without moral nor shame to it. Neither it picks up the gracious expositions of the letter to the agent chief executives of the G20 of the leaders of the eight important organizations of the society civil the more of the world (Amnesty International, Oxfam the International, Greenpeace, Knows the Children, Aid in Action, Plan the International, World Vision and Care the International), who have remembered the G20 that the life or death of hundreds of million people depends than it becomes; that the poverty and the inequality increase; that these generate and feed social tensions, conflicts and confrontations every time majors; that they are only 100 months to reduce the carbon emissions and to revert the one danger catastrophe; that he is urgent to guarantee the rights of subsistence of that half of the humanity that diminishes and dies between poverty and extreme poverty, that is urgent to protect the environment, the Earth (the unique one that we have) Beautiful Walden, professor of political sciences in the University of the Philippines, makes this question to the G20: Are enough Social-Democratic reforms to relaunch the economy or this crisis has to take us to another order? Also professor Bello proposes something that seems to have more legitimacy than the selective meeting of rich and who take way of being it, because that has been the G20: that Ki Mon, Secretary General of the UN, and the General Assembly Go they summon a multilateral encounter (not only 21) to confront the crisis and to prepare a new global order.
