Gambia’s role in holding Burma accountable for genocide

In a major ruling, the U.N. International Court of Justice at The Hague has ordered Burma to protect Rohingya Muslims from genocide. The court called the 600,000 Rohingya remaining in Burma, also known as Myanmar, “extremely vulnerable” to military violence. The case came to the ICJ from an unexpected source, Gambia, which took the case on behalf of the 57-country Organization of Islamic Cooperation. “The attorney general of the Gambia happened to have been a prosecutor of the Rwandan genocide and he felt that he was seeing the same thing happen,” says Reed Brody, a spokesperson for Human Rights Watch who has worked extensively in Gambia. He says the country’s involvement in the ICJ case is a “very rare instance of south-south solidarity,” showing “little Gambia sticking up for a minority all the way across the world.”

Folks, please share our videos! This is not a spectator sport. We need you to get active (and clever) in sharing the truth about climate change. The denialist side has huge funding. We just have the truth and intention of our viewers to work with. Use the embed code or share the link (to video or channel).
Dr. Luiz Marques, Professor of Environmental History at the State University of Campinas in São Paolo, Brazil shares an in-depth exploration and explanation of how our current ‘neoclassical’ economic system is responsible for the climate crisis and ecological deterioration, leading to a probable collapse of local ecosystems, and the general inability to grow food for human consumption.
Dr. Marques, who is a proponent of Ecological Economics (http://isecoeco.org) discusses capitalism as the precursor and root cause of the current environmental collapse tightening its grip on the Earth’s biosphere. He argues that an economy based on continual exponential economic growth, which is entirely the program of our current ‘neoclassical economics’ taught universally in business schools around the world, where nature and the environment are considered mere externalities, is unsustainable. A philosophy professor specializing in logic, Dr. Marques provides the logical connections between current economic systems and ecological devastation.
