The die of the First World People’s Summit is cast on Thursday with the proposal of Brazilian theologian Frei Betto, who stated this kind of meeting should be held in Cochabamba every two years.

According to Bolivian President Evo Morales, the initiative is approved in accordance with his government’s will and that of the social organizations of defending the rights of Mother Earth at all costs.

He also thanked the response of the countries to his call to this kind of meeting after the failure of the UN Summit on Climate Change in Copenhagen, Denmark, in December 2009.

On the other hand, Betto, promoter of giving Cochabamba the permanent venue of the Conferences on Climate Change, said that this represents an acknowledgement to Bolivia and to Evo, whose name means life, from the peoples of the world.

It will be an incentive to a new socialist country of the 21st Century, where all hope activists will join, stated the also consultant in environmental issues, President Inacio Lula da Silva.

Frei Betto asked to keep hope and utopia and go against media.
