Peak-Oil Party Platform Runs for Galician Elections

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=budzgvNWG-U&feature=player_embedded

200 specific measures focus on public administration, economy, education, energy, housing, rural areas, agriculture, transportation, taxes, public health and public awareness

The “Partido da Terra” (“Land Party” or “Earth Party”) is the first political organization (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_Party) to run an election platform based on the Oil Depletion Protocol. The party, which also defends direct democracy and self-sufficient sustainable living, has just launched a document with over 200 measures to prepare the region of Galicia, in Northwest Spain, for the forthcoming Peak-Oil scenario.

The “Partido da Terra” was founded in 2011 and the October 21 elections will the first major campaign where it files candidates. The food and energy sovereignty proposals are based on the recommendations of the Galician nonprofit “Véspera de nada” (“Eve of nothing”) [http://www.vesperadenada.org/] that also shared its policy briefings with all political parties. Despite this fact and accumulating evidence, all other parties continue to base their anti-crisis proposals in increased carbon-based industrialization and growth.

The Peak-Oil platform document is available (in Galician Portuguese) at: http://www.partidodaterra.net/galizasempetroleo/

    Every country needs to develop a plan to balance its population with its resources, food, water, energy and jobs.

    Those that do not will be exporting their people and their problems.
