It does not declare a national disaster
On Wednesday 4 of this month they will evaluate the trial of responsibilities against President Evo Morales for “ecocide”, “ethnocide” and “biocide”
The forest fire recorded in the Chiquitania region, which exceeds 1,100,000 hectares of forest, caused irreparable losses to nature.
The Government did not declare a national disaster, to the fire of magnitude in Chiquitania, to take care of the political image that it reflected before international organizations, according to indigenous leaders of the Amazon and the Indigenous Territory Isiboro Secure National Park (Tipnis), in addition to environmental activists.
They also warn that late attention will bring serious consequences to the country’s ecosystem. “The image that Evo Morales has projected to the world, of being the indigenous president and the great defender of Mother Earth will be damaged,” said the indigenous leader of the Amazon and spokesman for the Contiocap, Alex Villca.
Conade and indigenous people will meet on Wednesday 4 of this month in order to evaluate the trial of responsibilities that will begin against President Evo Morales for “ecocide”, “ethnocide” and “biocide”.
