President: "Earth has ‘right to life’"
Bolivian President promotes Earth’s ‘right to life’.
Mr. Evo Morales, the first indigenous president in Bolivia's history, spoke whole-heartedly to the UN General Assembly to encourage people to put the Planet in front of their own needs.
"Not just human beings have rights, but the planet has rights," he said. "What's happening with climate change is that the rights of Mother Earth are not being respected."
He told the UN delegates that "We have the challenge to agree on a universal declaration for the rights of Mother Earth."
In a move to help the Planet, President Morales suggested four key principles.
(1) The right to life; our beloved and fragile Planet is being miss-used and treated by irresponsible humans. Accountability must be enforced, apathy is no longer an excuse.
(2) The right to a clean life;
"The right for Mother Earth to live without contamination, pollution. Fish and animals and trees have rights."
(3) The right of bio-systems to regenerate themselves; Humans must stop acting like virus and spreading across the planet. There is a finite amount of destruction we can do, before a tipping point is realized, and the planet tells us it has had enough. ARE WE TOO LATE!?!
(4) The right to harmony and balance between everyone and everything; We must c.-exist with our benevolent animal companions. We can not rape and pillage the land and the animals any longer.
"We now must begin to realize that the Earth does not belong to us," he said. "It's the other way around. We belong to the Earth."
Our sincere gratitude your Excellency, President Evo Morales, in delivery such a benevolent speech. May your words of wisdom, and beautiful ideals be heard by all to help protect Mother Earth.
May all citizens of the Earth act quickly, universally unite and help protect our only home.
