Venezuela: Indigenous Youth Congress Concludes

Caracas, Aug 9 (Prensa Latina) The 4th Bolivarian and Indo-American Youth Congress concludes Tuesday after debates focused on the creation of a regional movement that includes the new generations. Since Sunday, more than 400 delegates from 18 countries have exchanged opinions on the relevance of this alliance, which will strengthen the current processes of change in the region and preserve ancient traditions.

Delegates also discussed issues related to food security, the defense and sovereignty of their human rights and their cultures, and others.

The congress closure coincides with the International Day of Indigenous Peoples, established by the United Nations every Aug 9 to celebrate the riches of indigenous art and its contribution to humanity, and to look at the challenges those peoples face.

To celebrate the event, the America’s Indigenous Parliament of Venezuela organized various activities in the capital and the western state of Zulia.
