  2. A campaign to make visible the plight of Indigenous Peoples in Colombia. Help us make this situation visible by sharing the video, signing petitions and holding the exhibition of Juan Pablo Gutierrez's inspirational photographs.

    BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
    At least one in three Indigenous nations in Colombia - distinct cultures and societies like the Wayúu people - face an urgent threat of total destruction. The causes: the impact of armed conflict, unrestrained resource development on their lands, and the failure of the Colombian government to uphold their rights.

    The Colombian Constitutional Court has found that at least 34 of 102 distinct Indigenous nations in Colombia are in danger of physical and cultural destruction. The Court called the situation “an emergency which is as serious as it is invisible.”

    The National Indigenous Organization of Colombia is urging the United Nations Special Advisor on the Prevention of Genocide to visit Colombia and expose what is happening. The UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is supporting this call for action.

    In contrast, Canada has never publicly acknowledged the seriousness of the threats facing Indigenous Peoples in Colombia.

  3. We received a secretly-recorded audio clip from a closed-door session of a recent Global Industry Summit.
    The subject was speaking about recent advances in neuro-marketing and consumer behavioral tools that we found incredibly creepy. Not sure who the speaker was and we couldn't find anything about the Global Alliance he represented, but we thought it would be nicely enhanced if we added some motion graphics to explain some of the ways companies are targeting our desires and levels of happiness to create "Optimal Consumers".

  5. Un grupo de Guías Espirituales mayas kaqchiqueles realiza cuatro ceremonias en diversos cerros sagrados de los alrededores de Iximché, Guatemala, donde explican y muestran su visión del mundo y la función espiritual del rito, en el que a través del fuego sagrado se comunican con sus abuelas y abuelos, mediante la ofrenda de velas, inciensos, tabaco y alcohol, entre otros objetos.

    Y allí arriba, en medio de la naturaleza, cuentan y demuestran como las prácticas ancestrales, a pesar de lo fuerte que fue la conquista hace 500 años, y a pesar de lo fuerte que fue el reciente conflicto armado que sufrió Guatemala y que los tuvo como foco de exterminio, siguen vivas en este famoso 2012.
