At last, some good news for the TIPNIS

From the Facebook account of Jacqueline Patino [Patiño]:

2013-02-06 12.03.23 pm#TIPNIS good news: Finally some light! They have admitted the popular demand. Read what was decided by the Constitutional Court.

The Committee of admission of the Tribunal constitutional plurinational [Plurinational Constitutional Court], resolved:

1 Revoke the resolution 59/2012 dated October 8, as registered on “folios” fs. 54-55, pronounced by the Departmental Court, Second Criminal Chamber of the Justice of La Paz. (which reject the demand for popular action)

2 Provide that the departmental Court of Justice of La Paz. give the guarantees and support POPULAR action, and previous procedures of rigor in public hearing of consideration as determined, that applied in law is granting or denying custody.

They are good news brothers, admitted the POPULAR action, the audience is to be designated by the Court of Justice in La Paz, that TIPNIS are all of us, is our obligation to defend it!
