The so-called “green economy” is one of the financial terms of the current phase of capitalism that also makes use of old and new mechanisms, such as deepening of the public-private debt, the super-stimulus to consumption, ownership and concentration of new technologies , carbon markets and biodiversity, land grabbing and land foreignization and public-private partnerships, among others.
The alternatives are in our people, our history, our customs, knowledge, practices and production systems, we must maintain, upgrade and achieve scale project as counter-hegemonic and transformative.
The defense of public spaces in cities with democratic governance and popular participation, cooperative and inclusive economy, food sovereignty, a new paradigm of production, distribution and consumption, the change of the energy matrix, are examples of real alternatives to the current system agro-industrial-urban.
The defense of the commons is guaranteed by a series of human rights and the nature, solidarity and respect for different worldviews and beliefs of peoples, for example, the defense of “Living Well” as a way to exist in harmony with nature, which presupposes a just transition to be built with workers / and the people.
We require a just transition which implies the expansion of the concept of work, recognition of women’s work and a balance between production and reproduction, so this is not an exclusive assignment of women. Still passes for freedom of organization and the right to collective bargaining, as well as the establishment of a broad network of social welfare and protection, understood as a human right as well as public policies that ensure decent work forms.
We claim feminism as a means of building equality, women’s autonomy over their bodies and sexuality and the right to a life free of violence. Likewise we reaffirm the urgency of the distribution of wealth and income, combating racism and ethnocide, the guarantee of right to land and territory, the right to the city, the environment and water, education, culture, freedom of expression and democratization of the media.
The strengthening of diverse local economies and ensure the territorial rights of the community building the most vibrant economies. These local economies provide sustainable livelihoods local, community solidarity, vital components of ecosystem resilience. The diversity of nature and its associated cultural diversity is the foundation for a new paradigm of society.
