I am sending a statement calling on Annex 1 countries to repay their historical adaptation and emissions debt. Please read this statement
and see whether your organization, nation or peoples can sign on to
this. I am now at the Climate Change negotiations taking place in Bonn
from June 1-12 and the civil society organizations along with
indigenous peoples will be speaking about this. We hope to get wide
support for this concept and proposal so that we can influence the
governments negotiating here in Bonn. This is a proposal coming from
Bolivia and other developing country governments and many civil
society organizations are in support of this.

The call by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay for aid agencies to be given free access to the camps so they can provide the Tamils with critical relief was also not agreed upon.
