The March for Life & Climate Justice started at La Via Campesina in Cancún and worked it's way to the 0km mark by the Hotel Zone to honor Lee Hun Kae the Korean farmer who committed suicide at the police barricades during the Cancun WTO protests in 2003.  Along the way people from all over the world spoke of the lie of green capitalism and in support of indigenous rights and solutions to climate change.

4 Directions ~ Indigenous Hurricane Relief

The Four Directions Relief Project was started in early October in recognition that the Native American communities of storm ravaged southern Louisiana remained under-served and in urgent need of relief efforts. Despite the immense pride and independence of these communities, Katrina and Rita created an intense burden on the people, and storm assistance was requested. Four Directions was organized to help gain both short and long term storm relief, working in solidarity and respect for the pride of local communities, and the preservation of their cultures. Working in solidarity with tribal leaders, Four Directions was formed by community organizer/spiritual activist Naomi Archer and medic Dave Pike who had been working on the ground in southern Louisiana building the innovative mutual-aid relief work of Common Ground in Algiers. Between October 2005 and January 2006, Four Directions, in collaboration with our tribal partners, NGO partners, and a very limited number of volunteers facilitated: * 27 tons of food and material aid collected and distributed * 1600+ volunteer hours in the community* 8 home repair projects including 2 emergency housing projects for homeless families* 30 classroom teaching kits to the most damaged elementary schools * 26 large and small appliances bought and distributed * 2 tons + of trash collected * 1200+ holiday meals distributed * Stories, interviews or links in 20+ native, commercial, and independent media outlets
