We are many people who want to act but do not always know how. With this intention is born   Acampa

Manifesto: Right to Refuge from Spoliation

If there is one word that can well define the economic system that rules our way of life, it is spoliation, causing millions of people to leave their homes to survive.  

The significant forced displacements of humanity have their origin in the uncontrolled plundering of resources. From the fifteenth century with the conquest trips, through the colonial expansionism of the European powers in the nineteenth century, to modern wars today, there is only one reason, the capitalist desire to appropriate the resources of other peoples for the benefit of a few. Under great euphemisms like “Holy War” or “Enduring Freedom,” they pillage and kill without conscience or scruple. It’s currently happening in Africa, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Brazil, Yemen, Latin America, Galicia, etc.  

The most modern form of spoliation comes from the hand of technology, the piracy of our data, our thoughts, desires, tastes, sensations, contacts, photos, opinions,  everything, the totality of our life, the objective behind is total control. Metadata is the new oil. Technology is, without a doubt, a significant advance for humanity as long as it is submitted to democratic powers. What needs to be changed is a system that is already above governments unable to implement democratic rules.

And finally, the definitive pillage, that of the planet itself, which is irreversibly walking towards climate collapse by the unstoppable greed of the capitalist system, condemning millions of people to suffer, forced displacement, and many cases, death. Perhaps this global pandemic of COVID 19 is the most recent warning that we must rectify. 

According to UN data, natural resources caused more than 40% of the last sixty years’ wars.  

Only the conscience and determination of the citizenry will be able to force the necessary change. For this reason, the organizations and people that make up the Red Acampa por la Paz y el Derecho a Refugio want to show in this exhibition some examples of how plundering causes poverty, desperation, and impotence. Land, oil, wood, coltan, jade, phosphates are some examples to illustrate that behind a forced displacement, there is usually a spoliation that causes it, and that is why we defend the Right to Refuge from Spoliation

  • Espolio e dereito a Refuxio

    12 November, 2020 - 15 December, 2020 | 
    Cantón Grande - Xardíns de Mendez Nuñez - Ver en el mapa

    Esposición de Fotografia Colectiva na Rua.

    ESPOLIO. Con esta mostra, a rede Acampa pola paz e o  Dereito a  Refuxio abre unha xanela virtual a uns cuantos escenarios nos que o roubo dos recursos xera sufrimento humano e danos ambientais irrecuperables. Agresións non só á paisaxe ou á biodiversidade senón tamén aos habitantes de centos de comunidades que, arrasados os seus territorios e perseguidos por defender a súa terra e o seu legado convértense, de facto, en refuxiados sen refuxio.

    A escravitude do século XXI que o consumo disparado de tecnoloxía instaurou nas minas de coltán na  R.D. do Congo ou nas de Xade en Colombia. A pobreza e a morte que o agronegocio, os usos da auga dos ríos ou a extracción dos minerais das entrañas das súas terras impón ás comunidades indíxenas de toda América Latina. Aquí están, por exemplo, os 80.000 incendios intencionados rexistrados na  Amazonía brasileira en 2019. Ou a loita digna mantida polos pobos indíxenas contra o saqueo. Tamén a enfermidade e a dor que o uso de herbicidas tóxicos sementou na Arxentina rural. A desfeita que as grandes petroleiras causan no delta do Níxer. Ou o abandono por décadas en que se deixou ao pobo  saharauí, literalmente sen terra e sen futuro. E mesmo un exemplo moito máis próximo, o do espolio do potencial industrial de Galicia co anunciado peche da aluminera Alcoa.

    Estas son algunhas das olladas ás que Espolio convídanos. O movemento Acampa ten un obxectivo e non se agocha: a reflexión e a acción colectiva. Só unha sociedade formada e informada ten conciencia crítica. Asómate connosco a estes escenarios de desolación. E actúa. O compromiso individual é só unha peza, pero imprescindible, na conformación dunha voz colectiva contra o abuso. Sumate á rede Acampa.
