UPDATE: President Morales to address the climate conference

We are in a stadium at this moment with more than 10,000 people gathered to hear Bolivian president Evo Morales' address to the Peoples World Conference on Climate Change and Mother Earth's Rights.

The gathering - opened by a moving Indigenous ceremony - reflects what has been achieved in Bolivia, and the leadership that is being demonstrated by Bolivia on the global stage.

More to come.
