Anthropologist accuses Inter-American Commission on Human Rights of using police force against Brazilians and promoting racial and ethnic segregation

Commissioner Francisco José Eguiguren Praeli is part of the IACHR that did not include the Mestizo representation in an event on the creation of an exclusive territory for Amerindians (Indianstans) in Santarém. The creation of indiestones is accompanied by ethnic cleansing against mestizos, people who are also native.

The anthropologist Edward Luz denounced that the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), during a visit to Brazil, “uses heavy police force” apparatus of Santarém”, a municipality located in the West of the State of Pará, “to prohibit the participation of Brazilian citizens and locals in meetings”, carried out in public buildings.

Edward Luz also stated in the article published on his website Revelando #SegredosdaTribo that:

I, Edward M. Luz, Brazilian citizen, anthropologist, under a strong police apparatus, was prohibited by the IACHR’s express orders to attend two of its meetings, which is now very clear, were carried out to strengthen the condemnable segregationist strategy of the political movement of NGOs that preach the ethnic separation of the Santaren people as a strategy of  socialization of private properties.

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) is an organ of the Organization of American States (OAS). According to its website:

“The IACHR is a principal and autonomous organ of the Organization of American States (“OAS”) whose mission is to promote and protect human rights in the American hemisphere. It is composed of seven independent members who serve in a personal capacity. Created by the OAS in 1959, the Commission has its headquarters in Washington, D.C. Together with the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (“the Court” or “the I/A Court H.R.), installed in 1979, the Commission is one of the institutions within the inter-American system for the protection of human rights (“IAHRS”).”

Invited by the Michel Temer’s government

According to the OAS website, the “on-site visit to Brazil from November 5-12, 2018” occurs due “invitation of the Brazilian Government received in early 2018.”


Headed by a “presidenta” – a term used in Portuguese version of the OAS website that in Brazil is practically only used by left-wing groups and personalities, as well as by former President Dilma Rousseff of the Workers’ Party (PT) – the commission, informs the OAS, is composed of the following travelers paid by the taxpayers of the various countries that make up the IACHR:

“President of the IACHR, Margarette May Macaulay; the First Vice President, Esmeralda Arosemena de Troitiño; the Second Vice President, Luis Ernesto Vargas Silva; Commissioners Francisco José Eguiguren Praeli and Joel Hernández García, and Commissioner Antonia Urrejola Noguera, Rapporteur for Brazil. The delegation also includes the Chief of Staff, Marisol Blanchard; the Assistant Executive Secretary, María Claudia Pulido; the Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression, Edison Lanza; the Special Rapporteur for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, Soledad García Muñoz; and specialists from the Executive Secretariat.”

Against the CPI, in favor of Apartheid

Commissioner Francisco José Eguiguren Praeli, who was in Santarém, was Justice Minister of Peru during the government of former president Ollanta Humala, accused by Marcelo Odebrecht of receiving 3 million dollars with the authorization of former Brazilian president Lula da Silva, currently arrested for traffic of influence and money laundering. The commissioner was also Peru’s ambassador to Spain.

In 2015, still under the administration of Ollanta Humala, he joined the IACHR, which is the rapporteur for indigenous affairs, being a critic of the Parliamentary Inquiry Commission (CPI) that investigated FUNAI, defending, as is usual between groups of the left that work in human rights bodies, the creations of exclusive territories for Indians that cause ethnic cleansing against thousands of mestizo families in Brazil.

Visit of the IACHR despises Mestizos

The Commission, it reports, “will look at the situation of persons of African descent and traditional Afro-descendant peoples (Quilombolas); indigenous communities and peoples” and other groups, not including Mestizos on their list. The Mestizo People descend from the original Amerindians who inhabited the present territory of Brazil. The indigenists, usually whites, are opposed to racial miscegenation and racial mixing.

The omission is not surprising, considering the invitation by the Temer government, tha excluded Mestizo participation in federal racial politics, and the IACHR’s support for anti-Mestizo policies that promote genocide and ethnic cleansing against the Brazilian Mestizo People and other Mestizo peoples of other Latin American countries and disrespects the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, to which Brazil is a signatory, which prohibits Apartheid.
