Regional states of emergency have been declared across much of Peru in response to extreme weather and a devastating toxic spill that sparked campesino protests in Puno region.
Those of you who have long been owed a signed copy of our new pamphlet as a thank-you gift for your support should have received it now. It is entitled Deja Vu in Peru: 15 years after NAFTA & the Zapatistas, it’s revolution redux in Washington’s South American free trade ally, and we still have a few copies left. It includes probably the most exacting examination in English of how corporate grabs of indigenous lands under the rubric of the new US-Peru FTA resulted in last year’s unprecedented Amazon uprising. It also includes our exclusive interview with veteran guerilla fighter Hugo Blanco, who led Peru’s first peasant armed movement in the 1960s and is today a foremost advocate of the Amazon struggle. If you wish to support World War 4 Report, we are making signed copies available for a minimum donation of $10.
Any and all encouragement for our efforts is deeply appreciated.
Thank you, shukran and gracias,
Editor, World War 4 Report
