The Amazon in Peru - our planet's second largest rainforest - is in grave danger. On the morning of June 5, 2009, Peruvian police opened fire and killed Indigenous peoples and supporters protecting the Amazon Rainforest. If development plans continue the entire Amazon will be on the verge of permanent ecological collapse within the next 10-20 years.
We call upon our sisters and brothers from around the world to take a stand for Mother Earth by sending a message.
Please request that the Obama administration endorse the United Nations "Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples" and insure Indigenous Peoples' right to free, prior and informed consent at the 2009 UN Climate Change conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Please request that the media fully cover the struggle of Indigenous peoples on the front lines of climate change. For they are protecting the world's last remaining wild-places that are essential to the survival of life on earth. All life is connected. All life is sacred.
It's crucial that we stand up for all our relations.
