Thank you to Zerohour for alerting me to this, and now am passing it on. Unfortunately it has been very difficult to find out more re the recent struggle in Peru, but I will keep searching.http://links.org.au/node/1110Latin America: Manifesto of the First Continental Summit of Indigenous Women
"Puno, Peru -- May 27-28, 2009 -- We, indigenous women gathered in the sacred lands of Lake Titicaca, after two days of discussions and deliberation raise our voices in these times when Abya Yala’s womb is once more with childbirth pains, to give birth to the new Pachakutik  for a better life on our planet. We, indigenous women, have had a direct input into the historical process of transformation of our peoples through our proposals and actions in the various struggles taking place and engendered from the indigenous movements.
"We are the carriers, conduits of our cultural and genetic make-up; we gestate and brood life; together with men, we are the axis of the family unit and society. We join our wombs to our mother earth’s womb to give birth to new times in this Latin American continent where in many countries millions of people, impoverished by the neoliberal system, raise their voices to say ENOUGH to oppression, exploitation and the looting of our wealth. We therefore join in the liberation struggles taking place throughout our continent."
