This is a poster series in solidarity with the grassroots organizing against the false solutions of the COP16 held in Cancun this December. There will be a short presentation at 8:00 pm about the posters, followed by information from members of Rising Tide (North America) about organizations in the area working on similar issues as those presented in the posters.


About the Project:
Mexico D.F. In the frame of climate change, the problem of the destruction of the natural world, consumption as a politic of insanity, the cutting of the forest, the loss of wetlands, the monopolization of water, the use of dirty energy as in nuclear, the construction of dams against the the interest of the peoples, the robbing of natural resources in the interest of the capitalist, most of the transnational corporations with the help of subordinate governments to imperialism, so like the consequences of the extraction and consumption of hydrocarbon, these are some of the themes different cultural workers have touched on, graphic designers, relief printers and painters, all the activist and integral distinct collectives of Mexico, participating together with the design and elaboration of 11 posters 18.75″ by 27.75″, silkscreened in many colors, developing with the proposed slogan “ no to climate change, yes to system change, no to environmental destruction, yes to the destruction of capital”.
So, each participant raised the need for climate justice for all, not only for a few, a discussion when all of humanity analyzes, discuses and agrees with a change of the
economic system, production and consumption, for that which allows materials to be sufficient, the knowledge and spiritual attainment for the human species recognized in all life, this is also with all living beings that inhabit the planet earth, call them vegetables and animals.
Acerca del Proyecto:
México D.F. En el marco del cambio climático, la problemática de la destrucción ambiental, el consumismo como política de enajenación, la tala de los bosques, la perdida de humedales, el acaparamiento del agua, el uso de la energías sucias como la nuclear, la construcción de las presas en contra de los intereses de los pueblos, el robo de los recursos naturales por parte de los intereses capitalistas, las más de las corporaciones trasnacionales con el apoyo de los gobiernos subordinados al imperialismo, así como las consecuencias de la extracción y consumo de los hidrocarburos, son algunos de los temas que han llevado a diferentes trabajadores de la cultura, diseñadores gráficos, grabadores y pintores, todos ellos activistas e integrantes de distintos colectivos de México, a participar conjuntamente en el diseño y elaboración de diez carteles de 47.5 x 70 cm, impresos en serigrafía a varias tintas; propuesta desarrollada bajo el grito “no al cambio climático, si al cambio sistémico, no a la destrucción ambiental, si a la destrucción del capital”.
Así cada participante plantea la necesidad de Justicia Climática para todos, no solo para unos cuantos, una discusión donde toda la Humanidad analice, discuta y acuerde un cambio de Sistema Económico, productivo y de consumo, por aquel que permita que los alcances materiales, de conocimiento y espirituales logrados por la especie Homos Sapiens se reconozcan en la vida toda, esto es también con todos los seres vivos que habitamos el planeta Tierra, llámese vegetales y animales.
