COP20 has also been a reason for artistic creation, as is the case with a composition entitled “Cumbre por la Pachamama”, written by the Peruvian ecological activist Rodolfo Rojas Villanueva from the Patria Verde sin Fronteras-PVF group in the Pasco region. .
The composition begins "This morning, I want to tell all the men of the world / that our planet, Pachamama, is sad and even sadder still."
Then, it highlights the consequences of Climate Change that affects the planet such as droughts, floods, cyclones, tidal waves and de-glaciations. It also remembers the murdered activists in Costa Rica, France and Peru.
He invokes the care and protection of the planet: “The Pachamama is still in our hands and we have to take care of it: clean / the rivers and beaches, plant trees, take care of bees and birds, / replace oil with renewable energy, in short , protect life, brothers ”.
He ends by demanding commitments from the COP20, but not deception: "COP20 does not continue to be twenty more summits of lies but a global commitment to save Pachamama.
Ecological campaign the Night of the Planet
Rojas Villanueva is also the creator of the La Noche del Planeta ecological campaign. It started 2011 in the Pasco region. “We created the La Noche del Planeta campaign in order to eradicate the pollution that occurs on December 31 as a farewell to the old year. We achieved positive results, because in 2010 they burned around 25 thousand sites in Cerro de Pasco, last year (2013) they burned a little more than 100 sites. This year the campaign goes to other regions of Peru ”, he added.
HERE THE INTEGRAL POEM
Summit for the Pachamama
This morning, I want to tell all the men in the world
that our planet, Pachamama, is sad and even sadder still.
Tell them that Climate Change hits God's creation:
For example the drought in Sao Paulo and the floods in the Philippines and Vietnam
Cyclones in Burma, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh
The tsunami in Fukushima and the acid rains in Cerro de Pasco,
the deglaciation of the Poles and the Andes Mountains ...
But why not tell God? My God, man destroys your creation:
Nuclear tests in the oceans, oil spill in the seas,
polluting mining operations, industries everywhere ...
My God, man, too, assassinates the defenders of your creation:
Jairo Mora, defender of turtle eggs, in Costa Rica, killed.
Rémi Fraisse, environmental protector, in France, assassinated.
Edwin Chota, protector of the trees in the Peruvian jungle, assassinated.
And, thousands more who shed blood defending life on this planet.
The Pachamama is still in our hands and we have to take care of it: clean
rivers and beaches, plant trees, take care of bees and birds,
replace oil with renewable energy, in short, protect life, brothers.
This morning, finally, I want to tell you that COP20 is no longer
twenty more summits of lies but a global commitment to save Pachamama.
