Netwar in the Amazon

Published: June 14, 2009, Author: JayTaber

Justified Turmoil

As the governments of Peru, the United States, and Canada attempt to defeat the indigenous peoples of the Amazon with military violence, the media netwar takes on new dimensions. While Peruvian government propaganda attempts to red-bait the indigenous movement, Real News exposes the North American oil and mining corporations behind the Peruvian state violence, and answers the question about who really benefits from unregulated Free Trade. As indigenous communities prepare to defend themselves from further massacres, a general strike and student uprising in support of indigenous sovereignty has Peru in justified turmoil.
