There is definitely a concerted powerful effort to weaken the position of indigenous peoples—and I dare say human rights in general—at these COP 21 negotiations.
But we remain undaunted, as seemingly insurmountable the odds against us appear to be.
My feeling is that the power elite states of this world, who—let us all face the truth—are merely the political faces and front men and women of the real power that rules over all of humanity today: The bankster cartels of the Corporatocracy.
These insatiably greedy bastards think only in terms of financial profit to them.
I think these self-perceived ‘demi-dods’ of humanity have assumed that by sponsoring so many of us to come to France, our airfares, our hotel rooms, our food, even our local transportation, that we would be ‘grateful’ for the ‘free trip’ and accept defeat by going shopping or some damn thing.
They were wrong.
We will fight them till the bitter end, here and everywhere.
