Descripción Entera: 

PBI is witnessing increasing violence and intimidation against indigenous peoples working non-violently to halt megaprojects, hydro-electric dams, mining and oil companies, and agri-business. Multi-nationals in pursuit of resources and allied with governmental actors, are threatening the security, water sources, livelihoods, culture, and the environment of indigenous farmers. In this time of world climate change, indigenous people are struggling to retain a sustainable development model critical to all.
This workshop will use hands-on experiences of PBI volunteers and environmentalists and indigenous rights activists in Guatemala, Mexico, Colombia, Nepal, and Indonesia to provide concrete examples of ongoing challenges and successes. Overviews of relevant international law will be discussed, as well as the First People’s World Conference on Climate Change in April.
We plan to engage participants in brainstorming and strategic planning regarding collaboration across regions, and actions and next steps to demand social responsibility from the private and state sectors, to protect human rights and the rights of Mother Earth. Strategic alliance between the international community and Indigenous groups is critical for success.
