MESSAGE TO THE HUMAN RIGHTS MOVEMENT
OF THE STATE OF ARIZONA
FROM THE PLURINATIONAL STATE OF BOLIVIA
Washington, DC, May 7, 2010
Dear friends of Mother Earth,
The Embassy of the Plurinational State of Bolivia would like to express its gratitude for your valuable participation on the Peoples’ World Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth that took place this past April in Cochabamba, Bolivia. It was great to receive in our country peoples from all around the world (More than 30.000 from the 5 continents) and also to feel the unity to try to save our Mother Earth from the disaster of Global Warming and the future of our next generations.
President Morales really appreciated your fruitful participation, all your interventions and interest in this key negotiation process. We would like to thank most of you who have sent us written communication of support and appreciations to our country, as well as all your proposals and initiatives for steps to move forward, all of them are very welcome.
It is our pleasure to present you the final documents of the Conference translated to English. You will find attached the Peoples’ Accord along with the final conclusions for each working group.
As you may know for the media, today in New York, President Morales is meeting Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, in order to personally present him the Peoples’ Accord from Cochabamba. Among the most important aspects of the People’s Accord are a project for a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by developing countries for the 2010-2017 period; a draft Declaration on the Rights of Mother Earth; a proposal for a global referendum on climate change; and recommendations for the creation of an International Climate Justice Tribunal.
Furthermore, the Bolivian Government wants to express solidarity with the nations and peoples affected by the unfair migration law in the State of Arizona. Together with the UNASUR Countries we are presenting our serious concerns to the State Department and requesting the US Government to act in order to stop this situation.
We will be in touch in order to coordinate another meeting of our Committee on Climate Change here at the Embassy, please feel free to contact us for any suggestion from your organizations.
All the best,
