The August 2010 issue reported on the Redstone Declaration, a "Declaration of the Rights of the Peoples and the Earth." The declaration was made by representatives of indigenous peoples from Australia, Canada, Chile (Mapuche), Guatemala (Maya), India, Kenya, Mexico (Toltec), New Zealand, Russia, Siberia, Swaziland, Taiwan, Thailand, and American Indian communities in the United States.
Without using my "two worlds" terminology, the Declaration was concerned, above all, with the destruction of the Natural World by actions taken from within the world that humans have created:
We call for ... an end to any further non-sustainable exploitation and degradation of natural resources - for all generations to come.
The image is of the "Southern Lights," the aurora australis: Green Fire made in the world we did not create.
