International Indigenous Peoples Submit Kari-Oca II Declaration to UNCSD
Over 500 indigenous peoples from different parts of the globe will march to the UNCSD (Rio+20) at 11AM today to deliver the Kari-Oca II Declaration.
The Declaration is a result of eight days of discussions on self-determination, sustainable development and indigenous peoples´ rights by indigenous leaders and communities who participated in the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples on Territories, Environment and Development – Kari-Oca II.
The Declaration embodies indigenous peoples´ perspective and analysis on the future indigenous peoples want, and solutions to the current economic and environmental crisis.
The march will begin at the intersection of Av. Salvador Allende and Av. Olof Palme starting at 11AM.
