Indigenous peoples’ demonstration in Venezuela

Indigenous communities of the Sierra de Perija and a group of organizations gathered at the Federacion Ecologista del Zulia are calling for a national march to denounce the problems that are affecting indigenous peoples in that country. The demonstration, that is being organized simultaneously in Caracas, Maracaibo, Trujillo, Barinas, Cabimas and Machiques, will take place next Earth Day (22 April)

The organizers invite all Latinamerican NGOs and individuals interested in the defense of indigenous peoples’ rights and the environment to take part in this event. Those interested in providing support to the march, please contact Jorge Hinestroza.
