Bolivia warns of structural crisis in the Amazon

La Paz, Aug 8 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian President Luis Arce warned on Tuesday in Brazil of the danger to humanity and nature, and urged to be aware and act accordingly in the Amazon region.

Speaking at the 4th Summit of Heads of State members of the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (ACTO), which is in session until tomorrow in Belen City, Arce insisted that capitalism generates a structural crisis in Latin America.

He reiterated that capitalism puts at risk its two sources of wealth generation (humanity and nature), without guaranteeing conditions for its reproduction and, at the same time, as if the natural environment were infinite.

Arce argued this aggressive imbalance with the environment and the health of ecosystems and planetary life puts at risk the over 390,000 species of plants and 16,000 species of trees in the Amazon, while stressing that Bolivia “has been the pioneer country in recognizing Mother Earth as a living being and in establishing a holistic approach to environmental protection.”
