As part of the historic recognition original peoples of the Americas by the national government and the initiation of the Integral Plan for the Yukpa Peoples, Tareck El Aissami, Minister of People’s Power for the Interior and Justice, announced that next month the first property titles will be handed over to the indigenous communities of the Sierra de Perija, Zulia state (northeast of the country).
“After more than 500 years of exploitation, oblivion and exclusion, happily, that old capitalist model is collapsing. Today, we are constructing the Indo-American, aboriginal, indigenous and Bolivarian socialism,” he said.
El Aissami emphasized that, “All our Ministries will be present in the communities, inspecting public works and listening to our indigenous brothers and assessing what is needed.”
Likewise, the Minister announced the donation of medical supplies to all pilot healthcare centers in the Yukpa indigenous communities of the Sierra de Perija, which will be carried out by the Ministry of People’s Power for Health.
