logo_a_bEvery day we receive information about serious events that impact us: wars, hunger, slavery, unemployment, violence, exclusion… that provoke the exodus of millions of people. Human beings who flee from pain, suffering and death, seeking refuge.
We are many people who want to act but do not always know how. With this intention is born   Acampa

MANIFEST: THEY HAVE NO FACE AND NO CONSCIENCE

We live in a world and at a time when every day we hear about globalization, as a euphemism for an aggressive and ruthless economic model. Little by little, a silent and powerful minority took control of the economy, technology, research, and rights as vital as health, education, territory, energy and water. They are the big transnational corporations, protected by friendly governments and the almost absolute control of information. They have no face and no conscience, and they do not allow international organizations to act to prevent the suffering of the majority of humanity. They do not lose sleep if the planet burns or dries up, if wars are designed to hoard resources and innocent people are killed or millions of people have to flee their homes and their land. Rodrigo Rato, who was managing director of the International Monetary Fund and vice-president of the Spanish government with José M.ª Aznar, explained the reason very well: “it is the market, my friend”.

How can we deal with such a well-constructed structure? What can the majority of humanity do to regain control of the planet and our lives? Only one thing: join forces and act. Become aware of our collective capacity and be able to say “enough“.

Acampa for peace and the right to refuge was born to work in this direction: the unity of action of organizations and citizens in the face of the helplessness in which the current States leave families who request an elementary right, the right to refuge. People who escape the consequences of the aggressive and inhuman policies of large corporations. In our own interest, we must respond in solidarity and demand respect for human rights throughout the world. If we allow the rights of those who knock on our door to be violated, the next step will be to lose ours, as is already happening.

In this second year of life of the Peace and Right to Refuge Acampa, we want to go deeper into a serious, urgent issue that is not recognized by any government: the right to refuge due to climate change.

According to UN reports, in the next thirty years the number of people who will need shelter due to climate change could range between 250 and 1,000 million. Most will be displaced in their own territory and a few, those with more resources, may try to change country. We can close our eyes or take the initiative; we can do it now or wait a time that may be irreversible. This is the personal and collective decision. The vast majority of the organizations and people who make up the Red Acampa act day by day on the ground and know very well what we are talking about. With initiatives such as Acampa for peace and the right to refuge we are doing our bit, trying to contrast the information, seeking and proposing alternatives, we are joining forces.

To take the next step, we need all hands and consciences.
