Note: Last week Pacifica’s KPFK radio station’s tower was damaged by a wind storm in Los Angeles and was off the airwaves for a bit. For the last three years now we have been doing live reports from the UN climate conventions (Copenhagen, Cancun & now Durban) for The Sojourner Truth Show with Margaret Prescod. After missing a couple of reports from the conference here in Durban, we’re ready to resume. The next segment will be with Teresa Anderson of Gaia Foundation. She is their International Advocacy Officer and works on issues in Africa. She will adsress the attempt here in Durban to expand REDD (the forest carbon offset scheme) to include soils and agriculture and what that means for rural peasants and indigenous peoples in terms of displacement from their communities and lands–a major issue here at COP 17. STAY TUNED-WE WILL POST AS SOON AS WE CAN. Breaking news–phone lines to Durban jammed at the moment. Will re-schedule tomorrow.
