Bolivia’s Vice-President Alvaro Garcia Linera (3-L) participates in a panel during the “People’s World Conference on Climate Change and Mother Earth Rights”, in Tiquipaya, 12 km from Cochabamba, Bolivia, on April 20, 2010. Environmental activists, indigenous leaders and Hollywood celebrities were gathering in Bolivia Tuesday ahead of the first self-styled “people’s conference” on climate change which runs through Thursday and will draft new proposals to be offered for consideration at the next UN climate talks in Mexico at the end of the year. Attendees say the summit will focus on the plight of the world’s poorest, which they argue went largely ignored at official United Nations-sponsored climate talks in Copenhagen last December.
