Massacre in the Amazon

Ben Powless is an amazing indigenous activist from Canada who I met at the Indigenous Global Summit on Climate Change recently. He is now in Peru, reporting from the scene, trying to make sense of the bloodshed, and attempting to get the viewpoints and voices of Peru’s indigenous peoples out to the world. His blog is well worth a read, as is this backgrounder.
