Deadly clashes in Peru's Amazon


news.bbc.co.uk

Those killed included at least 22 tribesmen and nine policemen. The violence took place as security forces tried to end a road blockade.
There have been fuel and transport blockades in Peru's Amazon region for almost two months. Local people say new laws will make it easier for foreign companies to exploit their land for natural resources.

Most serious

The fighting took place at a jungle highway near the town of Bagua, more than 1,000km (600 miles) north of the capital, Lima.

This is so sad. Looks like we have another Native American scenario opening up here.

These indigenous tribes are fighting to preserve their sacred lands, and in come the corporations, and their puppeteers, the gov to begin the raping and destruction...

The tribesmen of Peru are some of the last true natives that live harmoniously with their environment. And big brother and the ever-greedy corps can't have that---There's so much more for them to exploit.

Sigh

Good find, but I submitted this thread earlier. There is clearly inequality going on in the Amazon.
