- Should Climate Activists Support Limits on Immigration? by Ian Angus and Simon Butler

- Do Individual Consumers Cause Climate Change? by Ian Angus
PLUS: responses, criticisms and replies from a wide range of C&C readers, debating the key issues on this critical subject
COCHABAMBA: Documents of the World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth, Bolivia, April 2010
The Cochabamba conference was a breakthrough for the global climate justice movement. This pamphlet contains three key resolutions from this important meeting.
- The People’s Agreement on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth
- Indigenous People’s Declaration: ‘Mother Earth can live without us, but we can’t live without her’
- The Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth
Climate and Capitalism encourages the widest possible distribution of these resolutions. This pamphlet may be reproduced and distributed or sold by climate and social justice groups and activists, so long as no changes are made, and so long as the selling price does not exceed a reasonable cost of production.
