Climate Camp: Peoples against
#Terricide in defense of life and territories.
In the context of the current global crisis, climate change is an aspect of fundamental concern because we are witnessing the destruction of our planet. So today climate change is generating a global mobilization of peoples, giving an alarm to governments. However, governments do not listen. «Peoples against terricide» is the way we understand we must fight. We call terricide the murder not only of the tangible ecosystems and the peoples that inhabit it, but also the murder of all forces that regulate life on earth, what we call a perceptible ecosystem.
We understand that terricide is a consequence of the dominant civilizational model, that it is putting our future on the planet at risk, and that today it manifests itself through climate change and its consequences. We, women and organized indigenous dissidents of the 36 indigenous nations that inhabit Argentina, know that it is we who suffer in our body-territory the consequences of climate change, the ones that suffer the most environmental costs and liabilities generated by this global model of exploitation of natural resources.
