“Bolivia will this month table a draft United Nations treaty giving “Mother Earth” the same rights as humans — having just passed a domestic law that does the same for bugs, trees and all other natural things in the South American country.”
It’s “… meant to mirror Bolivia’s Law of the Rights of Mother Earth, which Bolivian President Evo Morales enacted in January.
“It also establishes a Ministry of Mother Earth, and provides the planet with an ombudsman whose job is to hear nature’s complaints as voiced by activist and other groups, including the state.”
No, that was NOT a joke…. well it is, but it’s REAL in Bolivia.
How did THEY get all the nutroots?
A-a-a-and the explanation:
“Bolivia is a country with a large indigenous population, whose traditional belief systems took on greater resonance following the election of Morales, Latin America’s first indigenous president.”
“In indigenous Andean culture, the Earth deity known as Pachamama is the centre of all life, and humans are considered equal to all other entities.
“The UN debate begins two days before the UN’s recognition April 22 of the second International Mother Earth Day — another Morales-led initiative.”
What began as Earth Day, became International Earth day, and has now evolved into the second International Mother Earth Day.
April 22 – go burn something.
Or pave something.
Or…. feel free to add other options in the Comments…!
“Ecuador is among countries that have already been supportive of the Bolivian initiative, along with Nicaragua, Venezuela, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Antigua and Barbuda.”
This is what happens when you give modern technology to primitive people….. Do they have telephones? Or newspapers? Let’s let them have exactly what they are asking for – they can return to counting with knotted ropes, and eventually they will restart their human sacrifices…….
