14 Peruvian Shamans have been murdered. It is believed they were murdered for their spiritual beliefs and practices. The Shamans have invaluable ancient wisdom that must be preserved and passed on. The jungle in which they live an endangered and the indigenous tribes that live there are suffering from the advances of the outside world. We need to act and contact the people listed below to STOP these horrible violent crimes. How does one kill? let alone in the name of God, or Justice. http://www.peruviantimes.com/05/report-14-shamans-killed-in-loreto-region/13843/
As quoted from the article:
Report: 14 Shamans Killed in Loreto Region
October 5, 2011 by Andean Air Mail & PERUVIAN TIMES ·
"The provincial prosecutor’s office said that the murders were allegedly ordered by the mayor of Balsa Puerto, Alfredo Torres, and carried out by his brother, Augusto, locally known as “the witch hunter.”"
"Rogger Rumrill, a leading researcher on Amazonian issues, said the murders are related to “protestant sects” that Torres and his brother belong to, the daily said.
“For these protestant sects, the shamans are people possessed by demons, so they have to be killed,” Rumrill said."
As my friend Ja Azura states: In this time, in this era, we still are destroying our ancient wisdom? Have we not learned from the Spanish Inquisition, from Nazi Germany?
