Clinton praises Garcia and Peru

Well we all know about Monica Lewinsky but is Bill Clinton going to be proclaiming 'no I didn't fuck Peru', you guessed it 70% of the Amazon is under threat from oil exploration in Peru, the indigenous have been killed at Bagua to get them out of the way for oil exploration, sounds more like rape than a consensual activity to me.

Bill visited Peru earlier this year and is a big amigo of Alan 'grease my palm with oil profits' Garcia.

Bill is oiling the wheels with some charity and has a long history of pushing 'free trade' with Peru..

More on this from Peruanista...no wonder they shut down his you tube channel he was on to something!

See some of you tonight at the meeting on Peru indigenous solidarity.

Massacre in the Amazon: The Garcia Government vs Peru’s Indigenous

Thursday, August 27, 2009, 6:30pm - 8:00pm
The Exmouth Arms, Starcross Street (3 minutes from Euston)

On June 5, World Environment Day, Amazon Indians in Peru were massacred by the government of Alan Garcia in the latest chapter of a long war to take over common lands -- a war unleashed by the signing of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Peru and the United States.

Come and hear about the latest developments in Peru and what we in Britain can do to help Peru’s indigenous people and the wider social and environmental struggles taking place in the country.

“The Amazon struggle must continue, demanding respect for the rain forest. The Amazonian natives know that what is at stake is their own survival. We hope that the world population becomes aware that they are fighting in defence of all humankind, the Amazon jungle is the lung of the planet.”

-- Hugo Blanco (Peruvian social activist and director of ‘Lucha Indigena’ ('Indigenous Struggle')


- Oscar Blanco (Son of Peruvian political figure Hugo Blanco)
- Derek Wall (Former Green Party Principal Speaker)
