Wishing everyone a Happy Tibetan New Year — Losar Tashi Delek. Also, wishing everyone a Happy Chinese New Year – CNY. It is the time of year to reflect on the old and bring in the new. Let’s set our sights and aspirations for a meaningful new year for everyone in 2019. May all indigenous peoples have the basic human rights to practice their spiritual/religious beliefs without harassment. May all indigenous peoples be able to speak freely without the threat of imprisonment and torture. May all indigenous peoples be able to preserve their language and culture without the fear of cultural genocide. May all indigenous peoples be able to live in freedom without oppression. Humanity’s richness and cultural diversity comes from indigenous peoples’ culture. Let’s not loose these precious gems. This are my heartfelt wish for 2019. Let us work together to ensure the preservation of the richness of humanity, animal kingdom, and mother earth. Mother earth is dying. Let’s turn CO2 emissions around by actively developing and supporting clean energy in 2019. Let’s clean up the oceans in 2019. Let’s clean up the air in 2019. Let’s clean up our hearts and minds in 2019.
