Statement in support of La Minga; Stefan Mikaelsson

Buenos Dias — Greetings from Sápmi.

Sisters and brothers, ladies and gentlemen.

My name is Stefan Mikaelsson and I am long time member of Sámi parliament plenary assembly swedish branch and also candidate for Feministic Initiative in the election to Swedish Parliament in 2018.

Mis mejores deseos para Onic; Organización Nacional Indígena de Colombia y para todos ustedes.

On October 24, the United Nations celebrates 75 years and has created these international laws that today give us the legal right to own our territories & waters, to know whats good for us and to speak for ourselves.

I express my support for ”La Minga” organized by the indigenous peoples of southern Colombia and ask the Colombian Government to listen to their legitimate demands.

Today we reaffirm our relationship with Mother Earth and our responsibility to future generations to uphold peace, equality and justice.

El pueblo unido jamas sera vencido.

Muchos Gracias.

//Stefan Mikaelsson.
