El llamado de la Tierra

“La protección de la vida en todas sus formas
es el objetivo principal de los pueblos indígenas.”

Un mensaje de las Autoridades Indígenas Tradicionales de Colombia
Gobierno Mayor

The indigenous Colombian movement is born from the convergence of the struggles of first nation people and through the union of the efforts of their traditional authorities. Our goal is to ensure the respect of our ancestral territories through a territorial bio-governance that complies with ancestral norms.

However, these past few months, all of our efforts to protect first nation communities and their ancestral lands were undermined by the series of assassination of our leaders and traditional authorities. Indeed, since Iván Duque was elected president of Colombia last August, 63 of them were assassinated. When you read these lines, this number will undoubtedly have increased.

Despite these violence we will keep on fighting for the survival of our communities and for the defense of Mother Earth's harmony and equilibrium.

We will keep on opposing the violence she endures: the megaprojects, hydroelectric, oil fields, and hydraulic fracturing system (fracking); deforestation, pollution of water sources, of seas and of the atmosphere; the illegal mining operations, the use of mercury, of cyanide and glyphosate...

And because being a social leader in Colombia can't be a synonym of death, we will continue raising our voices for those struck by despair and suffering from injustices.

The fight for the protection of indigenous people must go on. We are the guardians of 30% of the Colombian territory, vast and flourishing lands in which is born the water that gives life and the pure air that allows us to continue fighting climate change.

This is why we are reiterating our desire to co-construct a country of peace for all Colombians, a country that protects the life and diversity of indigenous people and their territories.

Through our cultures, traditions and knowledge we will continue sowing hope for current and future generations.

“El desarrollo planteado por nuestro sistema y nuestros
gobiernos solo es posible a costa de la sangre de la Madre Tierra.”

¿Qué es lo que está en juego?

Colombia es el segundo país con más biodiversidad del planeta. Sin embargo, desde que Iván Duque fue elegido presidente en agosto del 2018, 204 líderes sociales y ambientales han sido asesinados. El 71,08% de ellos fueron asesinados por su compromiso con la protección ambiental.

Los pueblos indígenas, como guardianes del 30% del territorio de Colombia, están en el frente de batalla en esta lucha por la supervivencia de la Madre Tierra. Por eso 63 de sus líderes fueron asesinados desde la última elección presidencial.

El paralelo, el gobierno colombiano busca reformar el marco legal que protege los derechos de los indígenas y sus territorios. El mensaje es claro: se hará lo que sea necesario para explotar los recursos de Colombia.
