El Deber website reported the latest agreement between TIPNIS leaders and the government regarding the regulations for the “short law” and the ‘intangible’ concept:
While these agreements are been made public and the enactment of presidential decree that will put into effect the rule, in Cochabamba there are warnings of a march demanding the road should cross the TIPNIS. [this unfortunate and belligerent instrument undermines the credibility of current central government]
“Indigenous people and the Government have agreed to” the regulations of the “short law” 180, but must be approved by the Cabinet of Ministers.
The highest representative of the indigenous people of the TIPNIS said that the traditional use was respected.
Since November 28, this firm was delayed for several reasons as there was divergence in the terms, but once solved, it was signed this Sunday, a [supreme] decree must be signed to bring into force these regulations.
