Indigenous Report

Published: January 15, 2010, Author: JayTaber

State of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, a new report by the UN, notes that the extreme poverty of indigenous peoples on all continents is directly related to their loss of lands, often taken illegally by private interests backed by state authorities. In places like Colombia and Peru, says the report, those authorities augment official violence against indigenous peoples with that of paramilitaries.
