"Today a new year starts for the indigenous peoples of the world, a new life in which we look for equality and justice for all the peoples of the world, from here in Tiwanaku, from here in La Paz, Bolivia…"

"…We have the obligation and the task to build awareness in the whole world that the majority, the poor of the world can lead their country in order to change the economic situation and to show that the poor also have the right to govern, that in Bolivia the indigenous peoples also have a right to be Presidents. "
