Final day Indigenas America's - Abya Yala (Guatemala)

by MM Friday, Mar. 30, 2007 at 8:20 PM
waqibkej@intelnett.com

This friday the final day of: III Cumbre Centinental de Puebles y Nacionalidades Indígenas de Abya Yala "Pueblos y Nacionalidades Indigenas de la Resistencia al Poder" Please assist with translations, reproducing, replacing, copying and publishing the info and texts!

Final day Indigenas ...

What means Abya Yala:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abya_Yala
http://abyayala.nativeweb.org/

This final day would attract most visitors and there is some speculation if Evo Morales from Boliva will join.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evo_Morales

The meeting started last Monday and I went there on Tuesday. It's at Iximche, near Tecpan in the district Chimaltenango between the toeristic vulcan lake Atitlán and Antigua, about 60KM West from Guatemala-city.

Bush visited this place two weeks ago, whereafter the indigenas performed a ritual to neutralise his violation and negative energy to this place.

And indeed; why did Bush have to go there to leave his (negative) print exactly shortly before this international meeting?
The answer seems simple: The rights of the more authentic populations and small farmers, are oftenopposite to the interests of multinazionials, mining corp's and realy big land-owners. And who Bush is representing might be quite clear in these: For the false perception and manipulation, he left his print that he came here to help the population.

And yes, accidently I got this info from a Dutch journalist I met there: A military USA org gives help by building houses. They do that in an area where there is a goldmine from Gold Corp (USA), of Montana (Guatemalan name):

After this meeting, I might not have internet access, or poor access. Besides of that is my Spanish too poor to make real translations. So best what I can do, is to provide all the info-links and hoping others can use that work to continue on, when the final statements have been made at the end of the day:

All Guatemalan newspapers:

PRENSA LIBRE Guatemala http://www.prensalibre.com
LA HORA Guatemala http://www.lahora.com.gt
SIGLO VEINTIUNO Guatemala http://www.sigloxxi.com
EL PERIODICO Guatemala http://www.elperiodico.com.gt
DIARIO DE CENTRO AMERICA Guatemala http://www.dca.gob.gt
LA REPUBLICA Guatemala -------
NUESTRO DIARIO Guatemala http://www.nuestrodiario.com
AL DIA Guatemala -------
EL QUETZALTECO Quetzaltenango -------
EL METROPOLITANO Mixco San Cristóbal http://www.elmetropolitano.net

The biggest paper seems to be "Prensa Libre", thereafter "Nuestro Diario".
Prensa Libre's sites can be difficult to access; try other hours + other site-entrances:
http://www.prensalibre.com.gt/
http://prensalibre.com/pls/

Indymedia Bolivia -the seperate indigenas site- has lots of news from the conference:
http://qollasuyu.indymedia.org/
(so *not*: http://bolivia.indymedia.org/)

Also "America Latina - en movimiento" is involved with the organisation (March nr.: Pueblos Indigenas"):

By email they've send me a few docs on the first day. Possibly these also are on their site (see many docs!), but I also parked them here, as they might be the more important ones:

http://cxs2.info/download/NP.27_03_07.Cumbre_Indigena_Cambio_Clim_tico.doc

See the org website; many doc's on several subpages!!!
