COPENHAGEN (IPS/TerraViva) Chilean activist Alicia Muñoz of Via Campesina, the global movement of small- and medium-scale farmers, rural women and indigenous people, has been in Copenhagen for a week taking part in different activities in Klimaforum, the civil society meet held parallel to COP15.

“It is very clear to Via Campesina that we have to apply pressure for an agreement to be reached, because we know the negotiations are not coming up with positive results,” Muñoz, one of the few Chilean activists in Copenhagen, told TerraViva.

“The people cannot continue to pay for this problem,” said Muñoz, president of the National Association of Rural and Indigenous Women (ANAMURI) of Chile. “We are completely sure that this demonstration will have an influence on the world’s leaders,” added the activist, recalling the record of battles she says have been won by Via Campesina.
