Protest Peru's treatment of Indigenous Communities
We call upon the Government of Peru and President Alan Garcia to respect the inalienable rights of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon to their ancestral land. We urge President Garcia to ensure that decrees 1090 and 1064 are repealed and not just suspended. We call for the reopening of community radio in Bagua, the assistance to residents of Bagua who are suffering a social crisis due to the unrest in Peru. We call on the Peruvian Government to stop the harrassment and arrests of indigenous leaders, specifically leaders from the AIDESEP, the union of indigenous organisations who are leading the fight for indigenous land rights in Peru. We support peace and unity in Peru.
