From Green Child Activist Greta Thunberg to Renee Juliene Karunungan or scapegoating Venezuela

A warm feeling of hope grips us as young climate activist Greta Thunberg speaks before Congress and the world. Somehow it even reminds me of my ancient desire to get to Woodstock, But another young activist Renee Juliene Karunungan faces death threats, in dire danger if she every returns to her native Philippines.

Over 100 climate activist have been killed in right-wing governed countries so far this year, Brazil, Columbia and Guatemala have recently become right-wing as the people and the environment suffers. The Brazilian rain forest is being burnt to the ground as Brazilian strong man Jair Bolsonaro tells Europe “No” on their strings attached aid.

Most of us want to blame Trump for all of this, me included. But somehow all of Europe and Canada joined Trump in interfering in Venezuela instead of in Brazil. Nicolás Maduro the President of Venezuela is far less of a strong man then Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil. And Venezuela is not threatening the ability of all of us to breeze.

Trump is throwing away the future in return for a quickly economic bubble and an exuberating high, “We are Number 1, Meth Like High”, can be stopped a lot easier if we would also stand up to his smears of Venezuela and Iran. The Democratic debates were disappointing on Venezuela and Iran. I hope the Green Parties around the world, and world-wide environmental movements push for the West leaving Iran and Venezuela alone, instead putting pressure on countries like Brazil. your social media marketing partner
