The Bolivian president brought with him to the Paris climate talks a plan written by social movements to save “Mother Earth.”
Bolivian President Evo Morales once again blamed capitalism for environmental destruction, during his speech during the opening plenary of the COP 21 Climate Change Conference in Paris, France.
Morales called capitalism “the formula that has destroyed our species” and delivered a manifesto to save Mother Earth and life.
“On behalf of the social movements, I came here to raise the proposals agreed to at the last Climate Summit II held in Cochabamba, Bolivia, last October.”
He added that “today we have a unique and historic responsibility with Mother Earth. Let us express our concern for the dramatic effects of climate change that threaten Pachamama.”
