Liberating Mother Earth

Published: September 29, 2008, Author: JayTaber

Mario Murillo writes in Colombia Journal of the struggle for the defense of indigenous rights in Colombia. Enduring brutal repression by the US–backed Colombian military and National Police, the indigenous movement in Colombia is now organizing to survive Plan Colombia—the culmination of centuries of genocide by the conquering aristocracy, now in bed with the United States and notorious transnational corporations. Whether the indigenous people of Colombia will be successful in liberating Mother Earth from the criminal elite, or perish under the crushing force of free trade, depends in part on Americans holding the Pentagon and U.S. State Department accountable.
