Voices from Latin America heard loud today

Mave Bastías gives an account of some of the interventions today from Latin American representatives of civil society organisations and indigenous communities, in particular those from José Ramón Ávila from ASONOG (Honduras) and Adolfo Millabur, mayor of Tirua (Chile) and one of the main indigenous Mapuche Lafkenche leaders. Mave found a common voice in both interventions, as they highlighted the gap between the commitment and capabilities of the people at the frontline and the need to tackle politically at national and global level those underlying risk factors caused by current development strategies that communities cannot confront themselves.
