Peru: Indigenous occupations end with victory in Congress

Peru to attack indigenous people in the Amazon

A note from the peruanista blog. Peru's government (along with Colombia, one of the few completely reliable allies the US and multinationals have left in the region) has sent its military against indigenous people in the Amazon and declared a state of emergency, banning public gatherings for 30 days. To quote one of the indigenous leaders:

A letter from Attiwapiskat

Note from En Camino:

Attiwapiskat is a James Bay Cree community, neighbouring Fort Albany. The James Bay Cree have seen their lands used in hydroelectric megaprojects and mines, including a De Beers diamond mining project most recently. Unfortunately, the communities have not been the main beneficiaries of the resources from their lands, and indeed, they have suffered poverty, neglect, and worse. The most famous case in recent years has been Kashechewan, a community evacuated because of contaminated water (a problem that prevails in many reserves).

Frente a lo que pasa: Seamos Millones, CARAJO

A partir de unos hechos recientes en Ecuador y en Colombia, se presenta una interpretación general y unos desafíos globales. Considero que los hechos reclaman una capacidad de reconocimiento y de reacción mayor y mas apropiada de la que existe en la practica, sin las cuales, los pueblos que resisten se quedan solos en sus actos heroicos y el imperio y sus agentes mienten, roban y matan a nombre de la justicia, la libertad y la democracia desde el inmerecido pedestal de la respetabilidad y el reconocimiento que, por criminales no merecen. Desde el clamor de los hechos de hoy y frente a responsabilidades y decisiones concretas, la historia de estos momentos nos llama para que la lucha digna no se ahogue en la soledad y para que la indignidad no siga avanzando impunemente. Examinar lo que venimos haciendo, lo que hicimos o dejamos de hacer en estos días, lo que podemos y debemos cambiar requiere de tomar las decisiones necesarias para tener la capacidad de reconocer la dimensión y magnitud de lo que los hechos representan y la responsabilidad individual y colectiva que nos corresponde para afrontar el horror y defender la dignidad.
