On November 20 of this year, at the facilities of the Simón Bolívar Andean University, the National Assembly was held with the Indigenous Organizations of Ecuador with the presence of the UN rapporteur for indigenous affairs, Vicky Tauli-Corpuz. The agenda ran from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On this important day, the situation of communities, peoples and nationalities was raised around three main themes: 1. Lands, territories, natural resources and criminalization, 2. Intercultural education and health, good living and social exclusion. 3. Indigenous authorities and indigenous justice.
Within the development of the agenda, each community, people and nationality had the time and space to expose the current situation in context. Issues, diagnoses and proposals were made known to the rapporteur for indigenous affairs for the United Nations Vicky Tauli.
As indigenous organizations we start from the assumption that we live -supposedly- in a pluriethnic, intercultural and plurinational state but we consider it to be a -farce- because they are attacking our autonomy, our territories and our rights. When listening to the compañeras and compañeros with their different demands, we see the incoherence of the Ecuadorian state and the governments in power, which violate the treaties that guarantee the peoples and nationalities in Ecuador.
