Presidents of Venezuela Ecuador and Bolivia Talk Climate Change

Hosted by Bolivian President Evo Morales, conclusions drawn at the summit will be presented in Paris at the end of November, at the UN Convention on Climate Change.

Maduro highlighted Venezuela’s role in organizing a people’s PreCOP in Margarita island prior to the United Nations Conference of Parties (COP20) in Peru in December last year.

“Only the people will save the planet … We cannot trust in the oligarchy or in the International Monetary Fund,” the Venezuelan leader said in his closing comments at the Bolivia summit.

Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa and UN General Secretary Ban Ki-moon also led the event in Cochabamba, which was attended by social movements representing over 40 countries.

“Droughts. Fires. Floods. Landslides. Glaciers melting. Oceans turning to acid. Mother Earth is giving us a warning,” Ki-moon told the conference on Saturday. “We must listen. And we must act.”
