779045-1405465624-wide_large

Laws recently passed in Peru exempt members of the armed forces and police from criminal responsibility if they cause injury or death to environmental protesters.

Peru has been the scene of protests by indigenous communities opposing mining, highway developments, oil drilling and logging, activities that have polluted and destroyed the rainforest.

The law, known as No. 30151 (which was passed in January), gives soldiers and police officers protection to commit crimes with impunity. (excerpt from the Petitionswebsite)

Please take action against this horrible law (onlinepetition from "thepetitionssite"):
