Thanks William, at first I thought you had posted the same article twice (it happens when you can't tell if Care2 is working correctly!;) But I see this is a different petition. I will also post on my websites.

I know the shaman are ok now where they have passed onto. My heart is with the people whose loved ones, friends, counselors and healers have been senselessly torn from their lives by the wretched stupidity of wanton minds.

"Misfortunes will happen to the wisest and best of men." ~Pawnee

“On the dogmas of religion, as distinguished from moral principles, all mankind, from the beginning of the world to this day, have been quarreling, fighting, burning and torturing one another, for abstractions unintelligible to themselves and to all others, and absolutely beyond the comprehension of the human mind.” ~Thomas

"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use." - Galileo Galilei

That's what they want to do to all spiritually minded people.

Kill them.

Leave only those who worship money.

Rob them.

In the midst of the horror, realize!

Suicide bonfire.

The enemy walks away laughing.

We wrestle not with flesh and blood but with principalities and powers.

This story made the Care2 Human Rights Causes page.

14 Shamans Murdered in Peru.

This article links to the same news story that is linked to in the body of the petition text, which was basically copied and pasted from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies call for action.
