Organization of United Nations (UN) general Assembly approved unanimously on Thursday 13 September a Declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples this document which surprisingly was under negotiation for a period of 20 years and than auque by overwhelming and historical voting as it was described by the eminent President of Bolivia Evo Morales kept as opponents to four countries that here we consider so dishonourable attitude as enemies of humanity in people its rulers are United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia and eleven countries abstained and that we cannot consider less than hypocritical conservatives kneeling before the Empire who undoubtedly and as always it has to do with the larger injustices and violations of human rights in the world.
