The benefits of mining argued by mining corporations as compensatory for its immense social costs and environmental destruction is a lie. Mining corporations in collusion with the government paint a rosy picture of mining, insisting on "responsible mining" and "there is life in mining" yet its impacts on the environment and people, especially to the indigenous peoples, tell a different story. The Mining Act of 1995 is a long-wrought tragedy to indigenous people. It worsens foreign-favored, one sided, anti-people policy of liberalization of the mining industry. It bridges and aggravates the centuries-old foreign plunder of resources in our lands. The Mining Act of 1995 worsens the oppressions against us. As our ancestors did, we have valiantly defended our lands from the transgressions, and today we defend our land and life from liberalized mining. However, we found ourselves pitted against government forces as they play protector of large-scale mines. Deployment of military forces where there are large-scale mining interests are massive. As if the massive deployment of military was not enough, the AFP recruits indigenous peoples to paramilitary groups. Reneging its campaign promise to dissolve paramilitary groups at the aftermath of the Ampatuan massacre, President BS Aquino beefs up the viciousness of its armed forces by allowing the formation of paramilitary groups and use them as pawns in counter-insurgency and as mining security. Under the BS Aquino presidency, 50 indigenous peoples, including 6 indigenous women and 6 indigenous children, were slain by the AFP and paramilitary groups. The violation of human rights of indigenous peoples worsened as a result of mining and militarization. On October 18, 2012, member of the 26th Infantry Battalion strafed the home of Juvy Capion, a Blaan woman and one of the leaders of the Blaan people's fight against the mining operations of SMI-Xstrata in their ancestral lands. The attack on their home killed and 8 months- pregnant Juvy, and her two young sons. Kitari Capion, Datu Anting Freay, and 16-year-old Victor Freay adds to the lists of Blaan people killed by suspected military forces in the SMI-Xstrata mining site between 2012 and 2013. Military operations also caused the forced evacuation of communities. Thousands of indigenous peoples repeatedly evacuated in Surigao del Sur, agusan del Sur, Compostela Valley, and Bukidnon among others. In tandem with violence, the government uses deception to facilatate the entry of mining outfits in ancestral lands. The connivance of the government and mining corporations is best exemplified by the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP.) The NCIP is the lead agency in deceiving, manipulating, bribing and dividing indigenous peoples. Instead of upholding IP rights and welfare against business interests, NCIP only negotiated in favor of the latter. The NCIP conducts "consultations" for mining outfits to fulfill the mandated Free Prior Informed Consent of indigenous communities. However, the FPIC process is riddled with issues of corruption, bribery, and coercion; and it has been used to legalize the entry of development projects in ancestral lands. The IPRA neither projects nor defends the rights of indigenous peoples to their lands and self-determination. It is tool of the State, deceptive and lethal, for plunder and exploitations of indigenous people's lands. The Mining Act of 1995, aided by the IPRA and strengthened BS Aquino's very own EO 79 is a deadly combination for the rights of indigenous peoples to their lands and to self-determination. For us indigenous peoples, the BS Aquino administration brings no respite from environmental destruction, human rights violations, repression, and oppressions similar to past regimes. Its continued implementation of the Mining Act of 1995 is a testament to this fact.

Despite President Ollanta Humala promised that it would meet the demands of residents in the Cajamarca area, many have been on strike for 3 weeks -- calling for the government to realise that building a mine in their indigenous land will destroy four lakes and could damage their water supply. The proposed mine is clearly not popular locally, but with the industry providing more than 60 per cent of Peru's export income, a decision to stop the Conga development could cost the country dearly Al Jazeera's Dominic Kane reports At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

The Mt. Polley tailing dam tragedy in BC took place in August 2014, spilling 25 million cubic meters of toxic waste. On November 5, Brazilians commemorate the 3rd anniversary of an even bigger catastrophe at Mariana, Brazil, when a reservoir of toxic mine waste collapsed, killing 19 people, spilling 32 million cubic meters of waste, and creating a toxic tsunami down the 650 km Rio Doce to the Atlantic. The circumstances leading to the socio-environmental catastrophes and the responses to them by mining companies, governments, and civil society tell us a lot about the state of mining today. The issues range from corporate impunity, to dangerous practices in mine waste management, to regulatory capture of governments by the mining industry, and to mining on Indigenous and Afro-descendant lands. Moderated by Liisa North, co-editor of Community Rights and Corporate Responsibility. Presentations by: * Judith Marshall, author of a comparative study on Mt.

"March 3 is the 23rd year of the implementation of the Philippine Mining Act of 1995 which caused the landgrab of the ancestral domain of indigenous peoples all over the country where minerals are abundantly found. Indigenous peoples experience continuous, intensified militarization and destruction of their communities due to destructive mining operations. Even the so-called due-process through "free, prior and informed consent" (FPIC) is violated. On the other hand, this process serves as a means to deprive indigenous peoples of their ancestral lands. Now, we face the issue of changing the present constitution which will lead to the worsening condition of the indigenous peoples through the constitutionalization of 100% foreign-ownership of mining. This is the aim of our lawmakers -- to give our lands to foreign corporations. At present, even the small-scale miners continually experience oppression through the formation of the National Task Force on Mining Challenge that is actually a clearing operation to get rid of the small scale miners and pave the way for large-scale mining operations. They say that they intend to protect nature and the environment but the areas they target belong to the ancestral domain of indigenous peoples, who safeguards and ensures that their lands are preserved and taken care of. The Cordillera Peoples Alliance therefore reiterates our call for communities and organizations to continue our struggle, our fight, to oppose charter change and the plans of the government through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), to forcibly displace the small-scale miners from their lands." - Santi Mero, CPA Vice-Chairperson for Internal Affairs

Ska-Hiish Manuel, Secwepemc Nation Indigenous Network on Economies and Trade Date: April 27, 2017 United Nations Permanent Forum of Indigenous People I would like to congratulate the UN on the tenth anniversary of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. More importantly, I would like to congratulate all the Indigenous Peoples who are here, who have survived over 500 years of colonialism and who have suffered the effects of colonialism. Before colonialism our People had the right to self-determination, we had our territorial integrity and we had our own sovereignty. What colonialism has brought us was slavery, de-population techniques, residential schools, settler institutions and economic dependence and all this has happened without punishment of the settler state. And now there are modern forms of colonialism such as multinational corporations usurping our rights to the land developing large mines, pipelines, housing developments, et cetra, all in concert with the settler state, the military and the police. In addition, there are countless missing and murdered Indigenous women, men and children and attempted cultural systematic assimilation all while the settler states have enjoyment and reward from our lands. All this without punishment. There is no emancipation or proclamation for Indigenous Peoples that recognize us as full Peoples. It is time to unsettle these nation states and it is time for a covenant on the rights of Indigenous Peoples within 3 years which is enforceable. It is time to end colonialism and its modern forms.

Superdump: Toxic waste seeps into the environment from South African mine dumps. December 2009 For downloads and more information visit: http://journeyman.tv/59894/documentary-films-archive/superdump.html After 120 years of gold mining, the land and water on Gautengs far West Rand are some of the most polluted in the country. The mine dumps that dot the area west of Johannesburg have been identified as public health risks. One of the biggest problems is uranium seeping into the watercourses, turning the sediment both poisonous and radioactive. Ecologists, the community and the mines all agree that the mine dumps must go. But no-one can agree what to do with them. This edition of Special Assignment takes a look at community resistance against two proposals to reprocess the mine dumps and relocate the resulting waste. Communities are clashing with the mines over two proposed superdumps mega-mine dumps proposed for Fochville and Randfontein. Should these communities suffer for the health of the entire region? And what impact will these superdumps have on food security?

The Global Indigenous Preparatory Conference for the high-level plenary meeting of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly to be called the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples (HLPM/WCIP) was held 10-12 June 2013 in Alta, Norway. Over 600 Indigenous delegates and advisors, observers and representatives of the world's media attended the gathering which was hosted by the Sami Parliament of Norway. The objective of the Alta 2013 preparatory conference was to help strengthen mutual cooperation, as well as identify and coordinate important problems and issues affecting the world's indigenous peoples and the effort to safeguard their human rights ahead of the HLPM/WCIP scheduled for 22 -- 23 September 2014 in New York. As a result of the gathering and previous geo-political and thematic caucus meetings around the globe, the Alta Outcome Document was adopted by consensus by participants in Alta. The Alta Outcome document identifies overarching themes and makes recommendations for the upcoming HLPM/WCIP. These themes include: * Indigenous Peoples' lands, territories, resources, oceans and waters; * Implementation of the rights of Indigenous Peoples; * United Nations action for support for the implementation of rights of Indigenous Peoples; * Indigenous peoples' priorities for development with free, prior and informed consent; In September, the Alta Outcome Document was submitted as an attachment to a letter to the UN Secretary-General requesting that the document be circulated as an official document of the General Assembly. The letter was signed by nine member States including Bolivia, Denmark, Finland, Guatemala, Mexico, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway and Peru. As a result, it is now considered an official document of the UN (A/67/994). www.wcip2014.org

www.mechaplan.com Padcal Padcal mine, which Philex Mining Corp. has been operating since 1958, is the first underground block cave operation in the Far East. It produces copper concentrates containing copper, gold, and silver. A majority of the copper concentrates are shipped to Saganoseki, Japan, for smelting by Pan Pacific Copper Company Limited, a joint venture between Nippon Mining Co. Ltd. and Mitsui Mining and Smelting Co. Ltd. The Padcal mine is under 12 mineral holdings, with an aggregate 95 hectares in Benguet province which are subject to royalty agreements with claim owners. Exploration activities in Padcal and its vicinity were pursued in three areas in 2011: the Sto. Tomas II orebody, which is below 773 meter level (ML), Bumolo, and in Southwest prospects. The Sto. Tomas II orebody is covered by the Mineral Production Sharing Agreement (MPSA) 276-2009-CAR, or Cordillera Administrative Region. The Bumolo and Southwest prospects are within MPSA 156-2000-CAR. Within the Sto. Tomas II orebody, underground diamond drilling was continued at 773 ML which aimed to explore the vertical extension of the orebody. An additional 10 holes were drilled in 2010 for an aggregate meterage of 4,802 meters. This meterage and those in the previous two years resulted in the definition of a significant volume of mineral resource between 600 ML and 782 ML that could potentially extend the mine life of Padcal beyond 2020. In Bumolo prospect, located northeast of the Sto. Tomas II orebody, the target drilling--started in 2010 to investigate the soil geochemical anomaly--was followed by the completion of three additional holes with an aggregate meterage of 1,286 meters. The drill holes intersected intrusive bodies with lower grade mineralization that appears to have diluted an originally good grade deposit delineated earlier near the surface. Good grade mineralization thus appears to be limited near the surface of the prospect. A modest mineral resource tonnage maybe realized from the prospect when the ongoing estimation is completed. The southwest prospect lies less than a kilometer from the Sto. Tomas II orebody. A breccia body, which was identified as a diatreme breccia, was confirmed after the old drill cores were reviewed and relogged in 2011. Gold and copper mineralization was validated after the old drill cores were re-assayed. Limited mapping and sampling was conducted in 2010 due to community issues. Pending the resolution of access to the property, the company decided to drive an underground exploration tunnel at 908 ML leading to the prospect. The tunnel reached 300 meters and a drilling pad was constructed near its face. The first of a number of exploration holes was collared in that pad and reached 148.5 meters depth as of Dec. 31, 2011. Drilling intercepted a breccia body with marginal grade of gold and copper. Two other prospects--Clifton and Bumolo 2--that were lined up for investigation in 2011 did not materialize. The social license for Clifton has been stalled as the communities raised new demands and the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) suspended the Free and Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) pending the issuance of a new guideline. Bumolo 2, located northeast of the Sto. Tomas II orebody, similarly became inaccessible to the exploration team because of overlapping claims among surface owners. Only limited stream sediment sampling in a small area outside of the known target was allowed. www.mechaplan.com

Most of the students at Montefiore have been kicked out of other schools for aggressive behavior, and many have been diagnosed with emotional disorders. Last Chance High takes viewers inside Montefiore's classrooms and into the homes of students who are one mistake away from being locked up or committed to a mental hospital. In the first episode of the eight-part original VICE News series we are introduced to two 14-year-old Montefiore students, Cortez and Crystal, who were sent to the school after violently attacking teachers. Cortez's mother blames the boy's father, who is serving a life sentence for murder. Crystal has stabbed her classmates and been caught shoplifting since arriving to Montefiore — which has left her mother on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Though the task can be overwhelming, the Montefiore staff never gives up trying to reach the city's most difficult and volatile student population.

Tauli-Corpuz of the Philippines, spoke about the impact that forests have on the lives of indigenous peoples calling forest conservation a very emotional issue. She said that while indigenous peoples had worked to preserve the health of the worlds forests, they are also subjected to all these activities that are leading to the deforestation of these forests. The relationship between indigenous peoples and forests was among the major issues discussed during the two-week forum at United Nations Carlos Mamani, Chairperson of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, also addressed reporters, saying that while there has been important progress in the conditions of indigenous peoples around the world, the continued construction of hydroelectric dams, highways, and continuing mining operations prolong the pillage of our lands. He said, however, that there have been important advances especially with the dialogue indigenous peoples are having in the context of the United Nations. Some 2,000 indigenous representatives convened in New York to take part in the Permanent Forums ninth session, which focused on the theme of Development with Culture and Identity. ...............

Speaker Bio Ann Marie Sam Lusilyoo (frog) clan member from the community of Nak'azdli After becoming the first in her family to complete a university degree program in history, Ann Marie returned home to Dakelh territory located in North Central British Columbia. She has been working on Indigenous traditional knowledge, land rights and environmental protection issues since she graduated from the university of Northern British Columbia in 1996. Ann Marie has been raised with a strong connection to Dakelh traditions and culture. She is committed to developing policies that ensure Dakelh connection to the land and water is not pushed aside as resource development increases in the Nak'azdli territory. A large part of her work has been to inform government and industry of the importance of the land, water and wildlife to the identity of the Nak'azdli people. In 2006 a mining company informed the Nak'azdli community that they were interested in proposing a mine development close to a Mountain known as Shus Nadloh, within the Nak'azdli Territory. This mine was being proposed in her family's Keyoh (traditional lands that a clan or family have responsibility for, where for generations they have hunted, fished, collected medicinal plants and occupied). As a mother of three she had a responsibility to get informed about the proposed mine development, and how this development will impact her children and future generations. Today the community of Nak'azdli is faced with the construction of the new Mount Milligan Project. Nak'azdli have serious concerns about the environmental and social impacts they are now experiencing and have taken it upon themselves to conduct environmental monitoring, and have developed a research project that is collecting data regarding the social and health impacts the new mine is having on their local community. Currently Ann Marie is employee with the Canadian Boreal Initiative, also a board member of Mining Watch Canada, a member of First Nations Women Advocating Responsible Mining (FNWARM), Chair of Headwaters initiative, board member of the Nak'azdli Development Corporation, and recently elected as School Trustee in the Nechako Lakes School District 91.

Defending the Secret Slave State (1998): Deep in the jungle of Suriname, lives a community of former slaves who, for three hundred years, have claimed the land as their own corner of paradise. However, with political controversy clouding over Suriname, the fate of this unique and largely untouched community is uncertain. Subscribe to journeyman for daily uploads: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures To the beat of Bob Marley, a battle is afoot. The key power broker in this enclave is Bouterse. He's a charismatic man but not a perfect statesman. He is wanted on drugs charges in Holland. And now he stands accused of selling-out this Slave freestate. Recently a group representing a logging firm owned by the Suharto family came to inspect the timber here. It should be a perfect development opportunity for the impoverished locals. Yet the opposition MP here is not convinced. Many like their lifestyle the way it is. And logging elsewhere has not advantaged indigenous populations. For the moment the Asian economic turmoil has delayed the project. But the world is closing in and the forest may no longer be the refuge it once was.

TUKLAS KATUTUBO Category: Organization SOV Awardee FY: 2009 Tuklasan at Ugnayan ng Kultura, Lahi at Sining ng mga Katutubo was born out of the common interest of various indigenous youth leaders to set up an organization that will further their cause and cultural preservation. TUKLAS KATUTUBO is espousing volunteerism among its members and partner organizations and recruits local volunteers in the communities who will sustain its Balik Tribo Program. The Balik Tribo Program is a comprehensive community empowerment program for indigenous youth, women, farmers and health workers. A two-week workshop is organized that provides them with indigenized life skills training to create a community-based relevant action plans based on the issues of education, agriculture and health. They are also trained how to tap available resources in the communities. Through the Balik Tribo program, the following accomplishments were made: 200 IP farmers increased their knowledge of sustainable alternative agriculture 200 IP Teachers increased their knowledge on indigenized education 200 IP health workers increased their knowledge on alternative health 200 IP youth increased their knowledge on community building and leadership Constructed 15 schools for indigenous students established by the community To espouse volunteerism, TUKLAS KATUTUBO encourages the IPs as well as non-IPs to volunteer for their own benefit and self-preservation. Presently, the organization has 5,000 volunteers nationwide. TUKLAS KATUTUBO is recipient of the Outstanding Youth Service Award (TOYS) from United Nations and UNESCO, Ten Accomplished Youth Organization (TAYO) from National Youth Commission and recognized by ASEAN as one of the outstanding youth leaders in Asia. http://www.pnvsca.gov.ph/sov/page.php?article=awardees/2009/org-tuklas _______________________________________________________________ Tuklas Katutubo (National Organisation of Indigenous Peoples in the Philippines) PhilippinesTuklas Katutubo (National Organisation of Indigenous Peoples in the Philippines) is a volunteer tribal organisation composed of professional, teachers, farmers, health workers, fisher folks and community leaders working for the protection and promotion of peace, rights, welfare and development of the indigenous peoples in the country. Tuklas means discovery, and Katutubo means indigenous. It was funded in 1998 in response to the lack of recognition and representation of the indigenous peoples in the Philippines, especially on the issues of peace and development. It recognises that misrepresentation leads to poverty and conflict. Currently, the organisation has reached 20,000 members nationwide with 67 chapters in different tribes and regions. Tuklas Katutubo has been recognised by local, national and international institutions as one of the leading organisations helping to build an organised and sustainable indigenous community in the fields of education, peace and development, ancestral domain and environmental protection, health, livelihood, agriculture and empowerment. To implement its peace programmes, Tuklas Katutubo has partnered with Asian Religions for Peace Network, Asian American Initative, Peacetech, Peacemakers Circle, Metrobank Foundation, Splash Foundation, Department of National Defence, Body Shop Foundation and local government units. Key activities Tuklas Katutubo's signature programme is the Balik-Tribo Programme (Return to Tribe). This empowers the local community to help themselves in the aspects of livelihood, education, health and environmental protection. Rebel returnees are part of these activities. This way, communities will not be pushed to further poverty which could result in more conflict. The National Indigenous Peoples Summit - another project of Tuklas Katutubo's - is an event to address national peace and development issues affecting indigenous peoples. That includes providing representation at peace dialogues and relevant gatherings. The Summit is a gathering of all tribes in the Philippines, including the Muslim tribes. IPeace (IPs) is another strategy of Tuklas Katutubo's to partner with various organisations to further represent the indigenous peoples in any peace activities in the Philippines, especially in Mindanao. The organisation partners with universities and other peace organisations to educate other sectors on the IPs call for peace, development and representation. Part of this program is to conduct research as a tool to augment the voices of the indigenous peoples in the country. https://www.insightonconflict.org/conflicts/philippines/peacebuilding-organisations/tuklas-katutubo-national-organisation-of-indigenous-peoples-in-the-philippines/

PEZA Director General Charito B. Plaza has been very busy these past few months. The head of the Philippine Economc Zone Authority has identified new sites for economic zone development. In total land area, this is equivalent to 70,475 hectares of public land. Various government agencies owning and managing public lands have entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with the Philippine Economic Zone for the redevelopment of properties under their agencies. These are the Privatization and Management Office, Power Sector Assets and Libilities Management Corporation, the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples, the Philippine Mining Development Corporation, and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Under Private-Public Partnership or joint venture schemes, PEZA is now committing to redevelop these idle public lands into ecozones. Of the over 70,000 hectares already identified by PEZ, 39,940 hectares will be allotted for the manufacturing ecozone. Tourism ecozone will have 19,815 hectares while the agro-industrial zone will have 10,659 hectares. In the distribution of the total land hectarage for ecozone areas, the balance of 42 hectares will be converted into IT parks and 4.5 hectares for IT centers. The remaining 5 hectares may be converted into a retirement zone. There are now 380 ecozones in the Philippines with 4,147 export-oriented companies. These ecozones have contributed P3.3 trillion to the Philippine economy. Director General Plaza has been pshing for the creation of Green Economic Zones and Industrial Cities in every city or province. She is also pushing for domestic-oriented ecozones especially on major crops like rice to ensure the food security of the nation. For the public lands under PSALM, the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation has identified nine sites within Metro Manila for redevelopment into ecozones. PSALM welcomes the opportunity to generate income streams which they can use to pay off their assumed financial obligations. PSALM properties are located near power stations which make it very attractive to investors. The Philippine Mining Development Corporation has over 60,000 hectares of idle lands and they have identified 8,000 hectares for mineral processing zones. The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples has 5,000 hectares for redevelopment while military reservation areas are also being eyed for defense economic zone. PEZA and Defense Secretary DelfinLorenzana are also eyeing the possibility of looking into Clark as a possible military aircraft manufacturing hub. Subic is also being eyed as a production hub for naval ships, patrol boats and submarines.

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies (SLAIS). Many Canadian First Nations and Aboriginal organizations are using digital media to revitalize their languages and assert control over the representation of their cultures. At the same time, museums, academic institutions, and individuals are digitizing their ethnographic collections to make them accessible to originating communities. In this presentation I will explore how the term "virtual repatriation" is being applied to the digitization and return of heritage to Aboriginal communities, and draw attention to the opportunities, challenges, and critiques associated with digitization, circulation, and remix of Aboriginal cultural heritage. I will discuss recent projects including the collaborative production of a Virtual Museum of Canada exhibit with the Doig River First Nation, a Dane-zaa community in northeastern British Columbia, and a current collaborative production of a virtual exhibit with members of the Inuvialuit community in the western Arctic and curators at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. I will show that while access to cultural heritage in digital collections can facilitate the articulation of intellectual property rights to digital cultural heritage----including the right to restrict circulation----it also amplifies the difficulty of enforcing those rights.

Spiritualution—Justice to the People! http://spiritualution.org/ The Spiritualtion movement stands in solidarity with Apache Stronghold and the Save Oak Flat Act, we stand in solidarity with all peoples whose land, water, health and way of life have been sacrificed to the greed and corruption of multinational corporations. In December 2014, after a decade of failed attempts to secure Oak Flat for mining purposes, Senator John McCain, Senator Jeff Flake, Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick and Congressman Paul Gosar conspired to add a last minute bill to the have-to-pass NDAA that forfeited sacred Apache land to the international mining conglomerate Rio Tinto (Freeport-McMoRan), effectively bypassing the democratic process and public scrutiny. Apache Stronghold, led by Wendsler Nosie Sr. (a San Carlos Apache councilman and former chairman), have arrived in Washington D.C. after a cross-country caravan and march to bring further attention to this threat to their sacred land and the Save Oak Flat Act, a bill introduced by Arizona congressman Raul Grijalva to repeal the land exchange and save this sacred indigenous holy land from imminent destruction. Apache Stronghold and the movement to Save Oak Flat are calling for all who support the right to freedom of religion and the sanctity of the sacred land of indigenous peoples, and who resist the corruption and anti-democratic maneuvering of congress, to join in this fight in every way you can, through prayer & song, by calling your local Senators and Congressperson’s offices, sending letters, signing the petitions below, and joining them in person in Washington D.C. Please check http://apache-stronghold.com for updates and how you can continue to support the movement as it unfolds.

Industrial invasion in the remote archipelago had gone too far. Ancient cedar giants and rare spruce trees—lifeblood of Haida art and culture—had been leveled indiscriminately for too long. Buoyed by their courageous Haida elders, protesters united in peaceful resistance. A total of 72 people were arrested, but their tactics garnered global attention and won change: in 1987, the government established the Gwaii Haanas Park Reserve/Haida Heritage Site. http://www.movingimages.ca/catalogue/Art/re_athliigwaii.html

Mid of man chanting: (Spanish) "Life is a treasure and it is worth more than gold." 5. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Egberto Tabo, President of the Coordinating Body of Indigenous Organisation of the Amazon Basin: "Many indigenous groups from the continent are here as a sign of solidarity. One of the proposals is for the mission to hand to the government a document that we have created where we ask the government to be more flexible in its actions." 6. Various of protest STORYLINE: Indigenous leaders from Peru rallied outside the their country's mission to the Untied Nations in New York on Friday. The demonstrators handed a letter of protest to a diplomat demanding that the Peruvian government remove the state of emergency currently in place in the Andean nation, so that talks between the indigenous people and the government can take place. The Peruvian Jungle Inter-Ethnic Development Association's 65 member tribes have blocked airports and rivers on and off for the last month demanding Congress repeal a set of laws the tribes say will open their ancestral lands to private development and exploitation, including more drilling, logging, mining and large-scale farming. They also want the government to revise oil concessions in the Amazon jungle and establish reserves for "uncontacted" tribes that live in voluntary isolation. Egberto Tabo, President of the Coordinating Body of Indigenous Organisations of the Amazon Basin, said at the protest that he hoped their Peruvian mission in New York would serve as a liaison between indigenous groups and Peruvian President Alan Garcia's government. In early May Garcia declared a state of emergency and suspended some constitutional rights in the four provinces most affected. He says the decrees are nonnegotiable. But Congress repealed two decrees last August after an 11-day protest by the tribes. Those measures would have relaxed rules for buying communal Indian lands. The Indians say Congress promised to review the constitutionality of nine remaining decrees they contested. Delays in that review spurred the current protest. A congressional committee this week recommended the repeal of a third decree regulating forestry and wildlife. The full Congress is expected vote on the repeal next week after the vote was postponed on Thursday. Environmentalists and Indian activists have criticised Garcia for granting mining and oil contracts over large swaths of pristine Amazon jungle. Indians say his government does not consult them before signing such contracts or on issues affecting their lands.

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News VICE News and the New York Review of Books have partnered to create Talking Heads, a series about the big issues of the day as seen by the Review's distinguished contributors. In this episode of Talking Heads, Mark Danner discusses his essay "Iraq: The New War." Danner wrote this essay in mid-2003, outlining how American policy during the Iraq war effectively helped incite in many ways what was then an emerging insurgency. The occupation of Iraq post-9/11 created a broad front to which militant jihadists began to flock. The mishandling of the Iraqi army sent thousands of highly-trained, angry men into the streets with no jobs. And photos of Iraqis being tortured by American personnel at the Abu Ghraib prison provided telegenic images that helped these groups recruit from an increasingly indignant public. Over a decade before it happened, Danner's analysis of the insurgency forecasted how it would evolve into what we know today as the Islamic State. VICE News sat down with Danner to discuss how the United States' invasion of Iraq and the ensuing war provided what he described as a warm petri dish in which insurgent elements would grow.
