I just signed the following petition addressed to: US Department of Justice and the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to investigate the destruction of the Naguake Indigenous Community Project in southeast Puerto Rico.

This indigenous base community has suffered in silence the injustice, abuse, and humiliation when their indigenous community project was destroyed in 2009 without just cause. An injustice inspired by passionate partisan politics and by the actions of political leaders that could not tolerate a community reclaiming their indigenous heritage. An indigenous heritage shared culturally, historically and genetically by the vast majority of Puerto Ricans.

We urge you to open an investigation of the destruction of Naguake Indigenous Community Project. The Community is also seeking restorative justice for all that was destroyed and removed from the project grounds, including: indigenous ceremonial plazas, community farm, and petroglyphs.

Those involved in the destruction of the Naguake community project dis-empowered a community and compromised their Constitutional rights, breaking the trust that existed between government and the community.

By signing our petition you can help us secure and strengthen those rights. More important, your effort, will strengthen our role as stewards of our natural and cultural resources, helping us become more self-sufficient and sustainable for the sake of our future generation.
