What: For the past 43 days, Thousands of indigenous people have been blockading roads and river traffic throughout the Amazon
in peaceful protests, demanding the repeal of a series of new laws imposed by the Garcia Administration under the pretext of
implementing the Free Trade agreements (FTA) with the United States The new decrees aimed at opening up the Amazon to oil,
mining, logging and agricultural companies without consulting indigenous peoples, making it it easier to transfer communally-
indigenous land to private companies, while setting the stage for water
privatization . This result in a government backed
land-grab by large international corporations that often have close political ties to the government.
