No to the coup d’etat In Bolivia! Down with imperialism and fascism in Latin America and the Caribbean!
We must advance our resistance to fascist attacks and corporate plunder by strengthening peoples’ movements. Our hope comes in harnessing our movements’ energies to create structural changes in the region through our collective and militant assertion, vis-a-vis prevailing neoliberalism in ASEAN governments’ economic policy, global powers’ struggles for influence in the region, and attacks on people’s fundamental freedoms.
We reaffirm our assertion that the people’s rights to land and resources of the rural communities in the Mekong must be respected and protected, and that all forms of state repression on civil society and communities resisting land and resource grabbing must be stopped.
We strongly condemn these attacks against the rural people in Negros and elsewhere in the world; attacks that not only violate their basic human rights but also greatly undermine genuine people’s democracy and food sovereignty. We join our members and partners in the Philippines in demanding an impartial, credible and swift investigation of the killings in Negros and make to account the perpetrators whoever they are.
