"Social Justice in the Bay Area" open letter

An Open Letter to Men Committed to Social Justice in the Bay Area - Calling on Men in the Bay Area to Stand Up for Reproductive Justice.

Written by Rishi Awatramani and Chris Crass Friday Jan 14th, 2005.

On January 22nd, the right-wing anti-choice movement will be coming to San Francisco to shout their anti-human rights, anti-woman message in the streets. At this time when women's rights to abortion are being challenged by the Bush administration and questioned in the Democratic party, it is crucial that we as men join the sisters organizing in opposition to this right-wing march and say: REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE FOR ALL! [2]

Signatories included Mateo Nube, Leadership Institute Coordinator, Urban Habitat .

Open Letter to Obama on Iran

Klimaforum09

December 2009, Copenhagen was the site of the United Nations’ COP15 Conference on Climate Change, a continuation of the negotiations that brought us the Kyoto Protocol. In "true imperialist form the US played an obstructive role, blocking any chance of reaching a legally-binding agreement to curb carbon emissions and avert climate catastrophe". Expecting as much, environmental activists planned Klimaforum09, a parallel participatory space for the international grassroots movements and leaders from the Global South whose interests were not represented at COP15.

Movement Generation, took a delegation of US-based environmental justice groups, including groups from the Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, Right to the City, and the Indigenous Environmental Network. MG’s analysis states that “in reality the climate crisis is only one part of the intersecting ecological crises we now face. We also face crises in food, water, toxics, loss of cultural and biological diversity, among others. These are all manifestations of the failure of globalized industrial capitalism to meet basic needs AND to ensure our ability to survive on this planet.” This analysis was echoed by leaders across the global South this past December in Copenhagen, from Hugo Chavez to Evo Morales to Lumuba Di-Aping.

The delegation they organized went with the intention of connecting “U.S. grassroots campaigns to global movements that are also working on the intersections of ecological sustainability and social justice” by collaborating “with organizers from the Global South to address climate change and help break open the view of the U.S. as a monolithic “rich country.”” Kalila Barnett, executive director of ACE, described her experiences with the MG delegation, at Klimaforum, and engaging in actions at the US Embassy as transformative. She told Aiden Graham upon her return that the priority now is to build a US-based movement around climate justice that can challenge our government’s role in impeding progress in these international negotiations.

According to Jason Negron-Gonzales and Mateo Nube of Movement Generation it’s “the Left’s biggest political opportunity in a generation.”[4]
