By ClOC VC Bolivia

Our organizations are fighting to change the food system in our country and the world, which is managed by large transnational companies that seek only their benefit, aggravating the inequitable conditions of access to food, under the logic of overproduction of food only for satisfy the market and not to fulfill the human right to food, making this one of the main causes of Climate Change.


The peasant organizations that are members of the Latin American Coordinator of Rural Organizations CLOC Via Campesina Bolivia: the Single Trade Union Confederation of Peasant Workers of Bolivia (CSUTCB), the Trade Union Confederation of Intercultural Communities of Bolivia (CSCIB), the National Confederation of Indigenous Peasant Women de Botivia - Bartolina Sisa (CNMCIOB-BS) and the Bolivian Landless Indigenous Peasant Workers Movement (MST-B).

Before the international stage of debate in the framework of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development and Environment (Rio +20), after more than 20 years of unified struggle for development in accordance with our worldview and realities, against hunger of thousands of peasants and peasants, and promoting a development based on respect for Mother Earth.

Our organizations are fighting to change the food system in our country and the world, which is managed by large transnational companies that seek only their benefit, aggravating the inequitable conditions of access to food, under the logic of overproduction of food only for satisfy the market and not to fulfill the human right to food, making this one of the main causes of Climate Change.

This globalized capitalist model of production, consumption and trade based on the concentration of capital, the high consumption of fossil fuels and free trade, is expressed in the rural world, in the change of land use, deforestation and the expansion of the agricultural frontier to benefit monocultures, the use of agro-toxic, agrochemical and transgenic inputs, and industrial food processing, to the detriment of the production of small and small farmers and farmers, and putting the planet's ecosystems at serious risk.

On the other hand, we are very concerned about the "green economy" proposal that is a central part of the "Zero Draft" that will be discussed in Brazil next June at the 429th United Nations Conference, as we do not accept that it be used by corporations, transnational companies and States to continue replicating the same destructive and exploitative model of economic development, which has been the main cause of the current climate, environmental, food and energy crisis.

In this sense, the organizations of the CLOC VC Bolivia summon ourselves to carry out two Plurinational Meetings for discussion on Climate Change and RIO +20, the results of which allowed us to deepen the analysis on: the contents of the document called "Zero Draft The Future that we want "that the States will discuss e! next June in Brazil.

The development of these collective reflections, in addition to the different contributions made by peasant and indigenous organizations around the world, in an articulated manner and in defense of our rights and as indigenous and peasant peoples, has allowed us to assume a position in defense of Mother Earth and the Peoples of the World.

Therefore, the member organizations of the CLOC Via Campesina Bolivia Declare:


First.- We reaffirm the urgency of building a "Universal Declaration of the rights of Mother Earth", as an instrument that ensures e! Live Well of all humanity.

Second.- We reject the "Green Economy" in the terms and conditions proposed by the United Nations together with the industrialized countries, wanting to impose a single capitalist production and consumption model, oriented to continue with the unlimited growth of industries; ignoring other visions, models to achieve sustainable development and the eradication of poverty, emerging from the Nations and Peoples of the world.

Third.- We present our forceful opposition to the imposition of the industrialized states and international financial organizations, to commodify Mother Earth and its components, genetic resources and ecological functions, through supposed financial utilities called "environmental services" and "natural capital".

Fourth.- We reaffirm our position regarding the principle of common but differentiated historical responsibilities, for which reason we demand that developed countries commit to quantified goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Fifth.- We reject the false solutions that seek to implement technologies such as bioengineering, nuclear energy, biofuels, artificial carbon storage and others, which will increase the impacts on Mother Earth, promoting land grabbing, and therefore the violation of the rights of the nations and indigenous and peasant peoples of the world.

Sixth.- We denounce that the "zero draft" proposal promoted by UNEP intends to substitute Official Development Assistance (ODA) aimed at overcoming poverty and inequality, with financial solutions for mitigation within the framework of commitments. of the United Nations World Conference on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Therefore, we demand that international bodies make a commitment to the peoples of the world, to develop and define real alternatives to the problem of Climate Change, respecting the commitments in international spaces, respecting the right to development of the Peoples and Nations of the World.

Seventh.- We demand that international policies that promote sustainable development must not create conditions for the financing of Official Development Assistance and other forms of cooperation, they must not violate the right to development of nations to define their public policies under their own visions of development within the framework of their sovereignty.

Eighth.- We affirm that culture must be included as a pillar of sustainable development, since both natural and cultural biodiversity must be protected to the same extent, respecting our worldviews, ancestral knowledge and practices.

Ninth.- We reaffirm the Food Sovereignty proposal as a real and effective alternative, emerging from the Peoples and Nations of the world, to overcome the capitalist production system of the earth and counteract the effects of climate change.

Tenth.- We ask that the Bolivian government, within the framework of the RIO +20 negotiations, defend the rights of Mother Earth and the Rights of the Peasant and Intercultural Indigenous Peoples and Nations, collectively built and agreed upon at the Summit of the Towns held in Tiquipaya-Cochabamba.

Eleventh.- We call on all indigenous peasant and intercultural organizations of Bolivia and the world to mobilize globally in defense of the Rights of Mother Earth.

It is given in the city of La Paz, on May 22, 2012.
