During a press conference held in this capital, the president of the lawmakers group, Venezuelan Jose Poyo, hold capitalism accountable for the problems affecting nature and human development.
We must defend the native land from capitalism and neoliberalism, which have endangered life in the planet, said to Prensa Latina.
According to the deputy, problems like global warming and drought plaguing Venezuela today were long warned by wise indigenous.
Those are old phenomena visualized by our shamans, who alerted the dangers posed by behaviors contrary to the preservation of natural resources and life itself on earth, he said.
In this regard, Poyo ratified the support of the American Indian Parliament to the Peoples' World Conference on Climate Change, a forum slated from April 19 to 22 in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
We'll be in Evo's great call, to take steps aimed at stopping environmental deterioration, he said.
Poyo called for popular mobilizations to demand effective measures against climate change and its consequences.
The meeting in Cochabamba will generate stronger responses to the environmental problem created by capitalism, he estimated.
