Translation: We are here not only to defend our own persons and
our own organizations; we are here to talk about other people at home.
We are here to talk from the grass roots level; we are here as spokespersons
of our people, of our misery, of our poverty, of oppression and often,
and too long, of genocide. And this has to stop. We believe by this
sign of gesture, to raise our flag, we, all the Indigenous Peoples
of the world, we will come under the flag of the South American Indian
Nation here. Because this is their territory. This is how we want
to show a sign of unity; not only fighting for our flag, not only
fighting for our own reasons, but for the world. We are all one within
the great circle of life, never forget that.
