Video Excerpt - “(The message is) to invite you to fight for Life. That we have the right to live a Life with dignity, quality, and plentitude. That this will only be accomplished if each one of us are responsible for our lives, and the lives of others... It doesn’t matter how developed humanity can be, or how technologically advanced they are. Until this moment nobody can lie that there is no technology or economic model that has accomplished finding another way to have Life if it is not through Nature - so therefore we depend highly on Nature, and each and every one of us have the obligation to protect Nature. Because if we protect Nature, we protect ourselves. It doesn’t matter what culture, what religion, what belief. Here the invitation is for the battle of the survival of Life with dignity and with plentitude.”
