XV General Assembly of the Fund for the Development of Indigenous Peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean.

La Paz: The XV General Assembly of the Fund for the Development of Indigenous Peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean (Filac) will hold its second day of sessions today on topics such as health, climate change and Covid-19, Prensa Latina publishes.

The meeting, held in virtual and face-to-face way, will continue its debates on the action plan of the native communities this Friday and will approve agreements and resolutions.

The agenda includes the election of the new Board of Directors and future actions against the Covid-19 pandemic, including the application of natural medicine, Foreign Minister Rogelio Mayta reported, quoted by the Bolivian Information Agency.

President Luis Arce inaugurated the meeting of Filac, an international organization created in 1992 by the II Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government held in Madrid, Spain.

The authority denounced in its opening speech that the 2019 coup in Bolivia broke the constitutional order and attacked the original nations.

That coup affected democracy and the rights of those communities, added the president.

The Bolivian leader recalled that the breakdown of democracy that year “consummated persecution, discrimination, humiliation, humiliation and torture, and caused the death of 38 people.”

The organization and mobilization of peasant, indigenous and native peoples – he explained – rescued democracy through the elections held a year later (October 18, 2020), which elected a representative government of the people.

The president recalled that times have changed and the construction of a plurinational sense in the States of Latin America and the Caribbean “must be the horizon of the present.”

Arce urged the indigenous peoples of the Filac member countries and the participants in general to demand their recognition and “end the stagnation of internal colonialism.”

He also exhorted the natives “to take off the armor of monoculturalism, to which we were subjected for many centuries.”

For its part, the National Confederation of Native Indigenous Peasant Women Bartolina Sisa asked to add to the alternative sessions on development, economy and community tourism.

“El Filac has the challenge of addressing issues like these, important and urgent for indigenous peoples,” declared the secretary of that women’s organization, Flora Aguilar, on behalf of the national alliance of agrarian entities Pact of Unity.
