Fighting to the Death

Published: February 15, 2013, Author: JayTaber

As China and Canada compete to plunder the copper and gold of the Amazon, South American politicians like Ecuador’s President Correa promote a new era of indigenous genocide alongside ecocide. Destroying the rivers and biodiversity of areas like the Condor in order to supply luxury commodities to Asia and North America, while exemplifying all that is wrong with globalization, harkens back to an ancient colonial era when slaughtering indigenous peoples was considered progress. Today, as neoliberal regimes from Colombia to Chile assert state jurisdiction over indigenous territories via death squads and hit men, the only choice left to some indigenous nations is fighting to the death.
