Update on Maxima, Woman of Courage 2015

Even as this newsletter is being translated, a group of lawyers and indigenous leaders are in Washington DC to testify before an international commission on behalf of Maxima and other citizens of Cajamarca Peru who are victims of land grabbing. Maxima and her family are emotionally exhausted from recent events, so will not be with them but are sending a recorded message for the commission. Thanks to some unexpected donations received recently, UI sent a modest donation to help with their expenses.
