Climate Vultures Circling Rio

Indigenous Peoples are carrying the mandates established in Cochabamba, Bolivia, to Rio+20, the United Nations Conference on Sustainability in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, during June. However, before the conference even begins, the prospects are dismal, as Bolivia warns of “Green Capitalism.”

The forecast is that the profiteering countries of the world will continue to stalk and destroy nature for profit.

Indigenous Peoples increasingly view the United Nations as a place for empty rhetoric and no results, with scam climate solutions, distractions to waste time, and a pattern of appointing people who can be bought and paid for by profiteering corporations and puppet governments.

 

At Rio+20, Bolivia is carrying forward the protocols established at the World Peoples Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth in Cochabamba, Bolivia, in 2010. The goal is the elimination of poverty through redistribution of wealth and restoration of the earth’s equilibrium.

Lakota Chief Arvol Looking Horse said he will travel to Rio de Janeiro for the gathering. With prayers planned in many regions, Chief Looking Horse, 19th generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe, urged prayers for an energy shift to bring about healing on in June, 2012.

“On June 21st I will pray with thousands of People at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development or Rio+20 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.” Read more: http://bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2012/05/chief-arvol-looking-horse-unite-for.html

On the Kari-Oca Caravan, Rio is the destination. As it passed through Peru during the first week of June, Franklin Toala and Mario Santi, two leaders from the Amazonian Kichwa community, were onboard.

Toala says that in government-led conservation programs in Ecuador, there is “no real conservation.” He says this because in Ecuador, oil exploration can take place even in forests that are placed under protection.

A priority at Rio+20 will be the right to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent, a critical theme in Ecuador’s indigenous movement. FPIC means that any entity that wants to begin activities on indigenous lands and territories, must first have the approval of the community. More: http://karioca-caravana.org
