2012 International Year of Indigenous Communication

Being that 2012 is the international year of indigenous communication, I present these points or consideration.

1- Demand the special and differential treatment of indigenous communicators, just as journalists have, in terms of protecting and concealing their sources.

2- Demand urgent and necessary preventive measures for communicators that are in situations of having their civil and human rights violated because of their work as communicators.

3- Instal in society that we all coexist in our territories and that inter-cultural and ethnic codes be adopted to avoid ethnic and cultural stereotyping that discriminate and denigrate our peoples.

4- Equally, we solicit respect for the right to communication, information and freedom of expression of the Indigenous Peoples and Communities.
