Call Out Declaration for the #G20 in St. Petersburg

Post Globalization Initiative

The crisis of the neoliberal economic order that began late in 2007 has not been overcome in the years since. It has taken on the form of a shifting catastrophe migrating from one part of the world to another. Controlling the movement of capital, and imposing an economic quarantine in the form of protectionist policies, are the minimal steps needed to struggle against this epidemic. But putting these measures into practice is blocked by the neoliberal ideology, hegemonic on a global level, and by the demands of international institutions such as the World Trade Organization (WTO), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the G-20.

People’s Action Against 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit

[As you can see from this statement below, it is very important that we talk about nuclear abolition only in the context of banning the nuclear bomb as well as the nuclear reactor. I hope Occupy Moscow will study this people’s statement against the upcoming Seoul Nuclear Security Summit and come to a similar conclusion that in order to have nuclear disarmament we must also stop spreading nuclear bomb factories around the world in the form of “peaceful” nuclear reactors, and shut them all down.] source: mail

The 2012 Nuclear Security Summit will be held in Seoul on March 26-27.

The Nuclear Security Summit was first held in 2010 at the proposal of the US President Obama, after he called for a ‘nuclear free world’. At the Summit, leaders from 47 nations and international organizations gather to discuss the security of nuclear facilities and the prevention of nuclear terrorism, labeled the greatest danger to national security. The Lee Myung-bak government, which is planning the Nuclear Security Summit under the slogan of “building a safe and peaceful world”, is also planning a separate ‘Nuclear Industry Summit’. Through these events, the Lee government seeks to dampen anti-nuclear sentiment, which has grown stronger in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and enable its plans to expand the export of nuclear power plants.

Proposal 1.0 between NY and Moscow Assemblies / Propuesta 1.0 entre las asambleas de NY y Moscú



Today, with a profound crisis covering the entire planet, we feel an increasing threat of militarism and wars. History teaches us and reminds us how these situations of mutual threat end up. Thousands of missiles, millions of guns do not defend ordinary people from poverty and do not help them feed themselves. Hatred and mistrust is only to be found in corporations and the military.

We appeal to the presidents of the USA and Russia to take steps towards a coming together. Let there be real action, not words. We are tired of the empty endless rhetoric.

Our peoples have never been enemies. It is only the elite who wish to earn more or to find even more power who have artificially created a confrontation between our two countries.

We demand:

Stop the spread of nuclear weapons and begin the progressive destruction of the nuclear arsenal that threatens all living things now on the planet. The signing of multilateral agreements would be confirmation of your good intentions.

Stop the development of new lethal weapons and direct the minds and strengths of scientists towards peaceful purposes. Discard the manic desire to threaten each other.

Start the reduction of conventional weapons, with transparency and open treaties.

Target your huge budgets that you have planned for the military-industrial complex, to the needs of ordinary people. Social security is needed for all citizens of our great countries.

We don’t need missiles, we need housing.

We don’t need bombs, we need hospitals.

We don’t need guns, we need exercise and text books.

We don’t need bullets, we need food.

We need a life in peace and a secure world, a world where we are not victims of their political games, a world where we can love one another, love our children and be friends with our neighbours. We are one world, one planet.

This declaration has been signed by the Assembly of Moscow on the 22nd of December 2011.

Cronología de Okupai Rusia / Okupai Russia Chronology

Movimiento de protesta por unas elecciones justas.

Protests movement for fair elections.

4 de diciembre. En Rusia se celebran las elecciones parlamentarias con numerosas infracciones.

4 de diciembre. En Moscú es secuestrado un activista del “Frente de Izquierda” Sergei Udaltsov: unos desconocidos le detienen en la calle, le meten en un coche y se lo llevan. Al día siguiente se descubre que él se encuentra bajo arresto. Udaltsov declara una huelga de hambre. Puesto que había sido detenido más de cien veces previamente y en suma ha pasado bajo arresto administrativo varios meses, al principio su arresto atrae poca atención.

Dec 4: Parliamentary elections marred by massive fraud take place.

Dec 4: Sergey Udaltsov, an activist in the “Left Front” opposition group is abducted. Unidentified men stop him on the street, stuff him in a car, and drive off. The next day it turns out he is under arrest. Udaltsov declares a dry hunger strike. Udaltsov was detained more than 100 times and spent a total of a few months under arrest, so the new one does not draw a lot of attention.
