UN General Assembly adopts indigenous rights document (TeleSUR English)

The UN General Assembly approved a document outlining the rights of indigenous peoples worldwide. The document was endorsed by consensus on Monday at the start at the 1st World Conference on Indigenous Peoples, being held at the UN.

President Evo Morales provided the opening remarks at the first United Nations World Conference of Indigenous People. The event is considered a special meeting as part of the ongoing U.N. General Assembly.

In his opening remarks, President Morales warned that capitalism is the greatest threat to indigenous movements around the world.

“The fundamental principles of the indigenous movement are life, mother earth, and peace, and these principles of the worldwide indigenous movement are permanently threatened by a system and model, the capitalist system, a model which extinguishes human life and the mother earth,” he stated.

President Morales, himself one of the first indigenous persons to be elected president of a country in the Americas, proceeded to list a number of advances made in Bolivia under his leadership that he says have directly benefited indigenous peoples. Benito Juarez a Zaptecan from Oaxaca, Mexico, was the first indigenous president of Latin America in Mexico from 1858 until 1872.
