First Nations Solidarity

First Nations Solidarity

With the Assembly of “First Nations Leaders gathering in Ottawa, this would be an opportune time for our Aboriginal Peoples to demonstrate solidarity with the mostly Aboriginal Bolivian people by joining with the Canadian Labour Movement, world scholars, activists and most of the world community in condemning the brutal military coup, against President Evo Morales, the first elected and highly acclaimed aboriginal President in South America. The Morales government is credited with maintaining a sound economy, empowering the aboriginal people and significantly reducing poverty in this poor country.
Furthermore, our first nations should join with the aforementioned and call for the restoration of Evo Morales as the legitimate democratically elected President of Bolivia.
Our First Nations should clearly condemn the Trudeau government which, along with U.S. Trump administration and the OAS, participated in planning and executing the coup. The Trudeau government acting against the interests of the majority aboriginal Bolivian people signals an inherent racist inclination which should not go unnoticed by our first nations peoples.
Demonstrating solidarity with their brethren First Nations people in Bolivia is a stepping stone to creating solidarity with first nations the full length of the Americas.
