“There’s Only Two Ways:
The Death of Capitalism
or The Death of Mother Earth”,
Evo Morales said
21 May, 2010
Comunicas.- Bolivian President Evo Morales called indigenous people worldwide to face capitalism, as a single option to save the planet from the devastating impact of climate change.
During a speech at the Parliament of the Sami minority in Karasjok, northern Norway, Morales stated that “there is only two ways: the death of capitalism or the death of Mother Earth”.
The South American statesman, who arrived in Oslo Wednesday on an official visit, said indigenous peoples have the chance to unmask those responsible for the climate change, the effects of which are threatening thousands of peoples, and even, countries.
For Morales, capitalism is the “Earth’s main enemy, because it turns it into goods, when it should be something sacred”.
The Bolivian statesman criticized that model, “which only seeks profits in detriment of nature, and highlighted indigenous people’s collective experiences, based on a life in harmony with environment and taking advantages of its use for the benefit of the community”.
