* ALBA Countries Defend Rights of Mother Earth

Deputy Minister of Environment Cinthya Silva expressed her confidence that those objectives will be achieved in the meeting of constitution of the Ministerial Committee in Defense of Nature, started today in La Paz.

“Despite difficulties and some contradictions, the Plurinational State of Bolivia is implementing laws to discuss, constitute and join forces to defend Mother Earth and that strategy is the foundation of that deployed in the international scene,” she told Prensa Latina.

In her inaugural presentation at the meeting, attended by representatives from Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Bolivia, Silva suggested to discuss the Bolivian proposal to present results in the UN Summit on Climate Change to be held in Cancun, Mexico.

The initiative recognizes the existence of common resources and basic services in Mother Earth, which must be fairly respected and managed for the good of all and not as merchandise.

It is based on the Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth, adopted by the First World Conference of the Peoples on Climate Change, held on Tiquipaya, Cochabamba, in April 2010.
