“The miners want to take the best organs from Mother Earth. What will become of us when the Great Mother Dummad dries up? The mines will dry up my brother trees, my brother mountains, my brother rivers” – Tomás de León, Saila de Ustupu, Kuna Yala.
“If I am the owner of this land, if my parents were the first to hear the song of the birds over this Abya Yala, how can a foreigner, who came to steal this land of ours, tell me that I must live here and within these limits? It is I, it is we who must say where we want to live” – Olonaigdiginia-Gilberto Arias.
