Fabrega: "A Minority Group of Indians Want To Damage The Peace"

Protests & Demonstrations Government Minister, Jorge Ricardo Fabrega said a minority group of indigenous Ngäbe Bugle Indians want to damage the peace that was achieved following the agreement signed with the government. Fabrega made these statements after several Indians, who are opposed to mining, yesterday invaded for a second day, the grounds of the Barro Blanco Hydroelectric Project in the province of Chiriqui, so that the authorities had to intervene.

The Indians when cornered by the National Police (PN), who fired tear gas, responded with stones.

Fabrega made his statements during a ground breaking ceremony for a new home for the elderly that will be constructed in Rio Abajo. (TVN)

The 'minority' are the people who live there. Their homes are threatened and will be swamped. Compensation has not been paid to those who lost their home and crops with the first damn.

You would fight for someone in Bocas - another minority - so why not these people?

They are living in the Comarca on land that is protected and reserved for them by law.

If you go to a report on Al Jazeera- Panama: Village of the Damned - you will get their story. It is pretty impressive and they are protected by law.

Another fact on the Al Jazeera report is that the whole region has a lot more damns scheduled and they are all owned by Panama's elite - including the Martinellis.

I suggest you start researching before you continue rubber stamping this administration..
