60 Indigenes "Insurgents" Killed By Govt. Troops

Where, you ask? Iraq? Pakistan? Afghanistan? Kashmir? Sri Lanka? The customaryr, distant, safe hot-spots?


Mexico? Colombia? Venezuela?

Getting warmer.



Recent free trade agreements signed with the American and Canadian governments fueled the government to go ahead with changes to domestic laws that would seek to advance mineral, logging, oil and agricultural ‘development’ into previously untouched areas of the Amazon. This touched off a over-50-day protest that has shut down parts of the Amazon.
Via the REALnews Net:

The Amazin' Amazon! Kapital will leave no resource unextracted, no matter the cost, whether to the indigenes whose lives will be forever interrupted, or the planet, which relies on the Amazon River forest to cleanse about half of its air.

They're gonna fuck it up! THEY ALWAYS FUCK IT UP!

What a coinkidink, we have that agreement for the blame, when the maladministration decided that Mexican drivers who hadn't passed safety tests and couldn't read English were now okay to drive into the U.S. under ... NAFTA.

And that road trip to UP should be fine anyway.

"Free" trade is a disaster that doesn't benefit anyone save the ultrarich. When will someone besides Chavez finally acknowledge this?
