We fully support Benjamin Zephaniah's Poem about Turkeys," Talking Turkeys" and urge all our readers to read it and think about its meaning:

Be nice to yu turkeys dis christmas

Cos turkeys jus wanna hav fun

Turkeys are cool, an turkeys are wicked

An every turkey has a Mum.

Be nice to yu turkeys dis christmas,

Don't eat it, keep it alive,

It could be yu mate an not on yu plate

Say, Yo! Turkey I'm on your side.

---------------

I got lots of friends who are turkeys

An all of dem fear christmas time,

Dey say 'Benj man, eh, I wanna enjoy it,

But dose humans destroyed it

An humans are out of dere mind,

Yeah, I got lots of friends who are turkeys

Dey all hav a right to a life,

Not to be caged up an genetically made up

By any farmer an his wife.

---------------

Turkeys jus wanna play reggae

Turkeys jus wanna hip-hop

Havey you ever seen a nice young turkey saying,

'I cannot wait for de chop'?

Turkeys like getting presents, dey wanna watch christmas TV,

Turkeys hav brains an turkeys feel pain

In many ways like yu an me.

----------------

I once knew a turkey His name was Turkey

He said 'Benji explain to me please,

Who put de turkey in christmas

An what happens to christmas trees?'

I said, 'I am not too sure Turkey

But it's nothing to do wid Christ Mass

Humans get greedy and waste more dan need be

An business men mek loadsa cash.'

---------------

So, be nice to yu turkey dis christmas

Invite dem indoors fe sum greens

Let dem eat cake an let dem partake

In a plate of organic grown beans,

Be nice to yu turkey dis christmas

An spare dem de cut of de knife,

Join Turkeys United an dey'll be delighted

An yu will mek new friends 'FOR LIFE'.

Here is a video of a Green Family Breakfast about COP 19 at Warsaw and their ambition for its outcome and achievement to stop climate change

Link is here COP 19 Green Family Discussions at COP 19 in Warsaw this week November 2013

In the week of the most powerful storm ever recorded- the worlds governments come together for the Climate Conference COP 19 in Warsaw.The Rep from the Philipines is on hunger strike until some meaningful progress is made towards global agreement to stop this madness as he calls it. And he is totally correct. The Green Economics Institute has its delegation at the Conference and we fully support a climate agreement and cannot believe how irresponsible it is to delay it. Future generations will not forgive this pandering to vested interests. Its time to get real and get on with sorting out the climate mess we have created.This time, lets get an agremeent made in double quick time!
