CBC News – Mar 22nd 2018 Canadian Teen Tells UN ‘Warrior Up’ To Protect Water
“It’s time to “warrior up,”stop polluting the planet and give water the same rights and protections as human beings.“ That’s the message Autumn Peltier, a 13-year-old Canadian, delivered personally to the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday.
“Many people don’t think water is alive, or has a spirit,” the young Anishinaabe girl from Wikwemikong First Nation told the diplomats gathered in New York City, in her speech on World Water Day.
“My People.., believe this to be true.””Our water deserves to be treated as a human with human rights. We need to acknowledge our waters with ‘personhood’ so, we can protect our waters.”
The five-foot tall teen from Manitoulin Island, Ont, stood on a stool behind the podium, so she could reach the microphone. Autumn had been invited to speak as the “representative of civil society,”
joining UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and other international dignitaries, for the launch the UN’s International Decade for Action on Water for Sustainable Development.
