We have just learned that over the last 20 months 14 shamans have been murdered in Peru's region of Loreto. The provincial prosecutor's office said that the murders were allegedly ordered by the mayor of Balsa Puerto, Alfredo Torres.

“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 Jefferson

Thank you William. Very important petition. It is unbelievable that in this day and age the indigenous population globally is still being slaughtered, suffer under oppression and have their basic fundamental human rights violated.

Action taken but the information seems a little sketchy. I'm hoping it isn't true.

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.

Thanks William for bringing this to light.
if it is protestants doing the killing its such a contradiction of the teachings of one they claim to follow,
who said "if your enemy strikes you on the cheek turn to him the other cheek" and
"love your enemy ..."
and if these medicine people failed in their cures, it does NOT mean they are "evil"
Christians have yet to empty one single hospital with THEIR prayers.

For the ignorant cretins killing in the name of their version of Christianity, Jesus can be considered a shaman as he, by Church teachings, healed with the, "Spirit."

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. I've also posted that as a separate news item can be found here.

Noted & signed #64/10,000. Thanks William. Sounds like the "officials" are terrified of the Shamans and the messages they send. Reactions like these awful murders are so typical of ignorance and fear of loss of power, control and just possibly - money.
