Bolivia Hosts 3rd Continental Summit of Indigenous Communication
La Paz, Nov 14 (Prensa Latina) The coming 3rd Continental Summit of Indigenous Communication is today a challenge for Bolivia, as part of the government''s efforts to rescue ancestral values and reinforce social inclusion of indigenous and originary communities.
The venue scheduled from November 15 thru 19 in Tiquipaya, central department of Cochabamba, confirmed ther attendance of over 300 delegates from some 20 countries.
According to the Minister of Communication, Marianela Paco, the Political Constitution of the State asserts the challenge of rescuing ancestral values and, among them, the ways to communicate.
At the same time, she urged the communication media to participate in the event to analyze and debate the handling of the information based on the principle of inclusion.
Before colonization, she reflected, 'our relations person to person was based on very deep values, we did not need laws that order our way of life, so it was direct, orderly communication, and that is why those topics will surely be object of debate'.
For his part, the coordinator of the System of the United Nations for Development in Bolivia, Mauricio Ramirez, said the Continental Summit of Indigenous Communication will be a very important space to spread the advances of each country with originary populations regarding human rights.
Through these summits, we unite the peoples of Latin America, looking for unity so we are no longer object of deceit and to defend sovereignty and policies of each of our peoples, explained Feliciano Vegamonte, executive secretary of the Bolivian Single Trade Union Confederation of Rural Workers.
He believes that alternatives must be sought to consolidate policies in communication topics and stressed the leadership of Evo Morales, first indigenous president in the country's history.
In Bolivia we are living a process of changes under the leadership of an originary president, with whom we want to change neoliberal structures which the empire wanted to impose on us, he argued.
