Cuba to the Rescue

Date Uploaded: 2019-07-15 20:14:31.0
Javier Cabrera discusses Cuba’s community environmental education program, and its programs to combat climate change. He explains how the US blockade of Cuba, has undermined joint efforts begun under the Obama Administration to transfer Cuba’s expertese in preparing for climate driven disaster and the attending cultural and economic change through comprehensive planing toward human sustainable development.

There was a lively Q&A along with announcements of an International Climate Strike on September 20th and 27th, and an International gathering this Fall in Southern Illinois to plan for a popular response to Trump's and dominant Corporations malfeasance, actually criminal malfeasance, for failing to prepare for a sustainable future for us all and blocking the efforts of others in order to perpetuate the neoliberal life blind profit system.

The current blockade has increased U.S. vulnerability to the growing climate crisis by ending the cooperative efforts which he speaks of. Universities, perhaps due to their co option by neoliberal business ideology have failed both their students and society in failing to prepare them to understand and deal with what is now an existential threat; a point also made by Harvard climate scientist James Anderson when he gave the 2018 Benton Lecture at the University of Chicago. That failure has hobbled planers and public administrators as well as citizens. Cuba has recognized that we are all facing the same threat, even though its nature will vary with location. Their project in part prepares planers and officials to deal with the local particulars of their communities with a holistic approach.

Latin Waves : interviews professor Marcelo Saavedra on the role of languages

Date Uploaded: 2019-07-15 00:14:37.0
A professor at Carleton University, Marcelo Saavedra is an Indigenous Bolivian leader and founder of the Bolivia Action Solidarity Network.

He speaks to Latin Waves about the need to protect indigenous languages as these languages change how we view the world. He challenges the western notion of rights and how the paradigm shift that’s taking place must have women front and center.

“If we can harness that wisdom that is embedded in our ancestral cultures, we can get rid of capitalism, patriarchy , Globalization and colonialism. And Women are a central central piece in this puzzle”
