Blouin-Genest et al. However, in Peru, forced sterilization has been invoked during every presidential election period since by political parties and presidential candidates and swayed vot- ers in favor of Pedro Pablo Kuczynski in the election El Comercio Nevertheless, the forced sterilization issue has been neglected by the truth-seeking process — 2 and as of has not been brought to trial. It proposes an intersectional human rights analysis for understanding the case of forced sterilization of indige- nous women. The analysis is rooted in the perspective that human rights violations may have overlapping categories of rights violations based on gender, race, ethnicity, and class.
They grow some crops but rely more on hunting and gathering. What are their problems? Brazil moves to prevent 'massacre' of Amazon tribe by drug traffickers. The head of Brazil's indigenous protection service is to make an emergency visit to a remote jungle outpost, amid fears that members of an isolated Amazon tribe may have been "massacred" by drug traffickers.
Fears for the tribe's wellbeing have been escalating since late July when a group of heavily armed Peruvian traffickers reportedly invaded its land, triggering a crisis in the remote border region between Brazil and Peru. But after the police pulled out, officers with the indigenous protection service Funai decided to return fearing a "massacre".
They claimed that groups of men with rifles and machine guns were still at large in the rainforest.
Reports suggest the traffickers may have been attempting to set up new smuggling routes, running through the tribe's land. The so-called Voluntary Surgical Contraception AQV , performed by physicians, was far from voluntary and done without informing the patient about the procedures involved, the implications or the consequences thereof. The tubal ligations were performed under inappropriate hygienic and infrastructural conditions and lacked adequate post-operative care monitoring, regardless of the manner in which their bodies were stricken everyday by strong and constant headaches, dizziness, hemorrhages, delayed menopause and intense pain in the stomach, hip and back, which made weaving in Caiwa ancestral waist loom technique or working in the field, impossible tasks to perform.
Most of them migrated to nearby towns or cities where trade was more feasible. However, the uprooting caused a radical change in lifestyle—from the field to the city—which greatly affected their economic autonomy. With the passage of the years, these ailments had worsened in the majority of cases and had even occasioned death.
Gender inequalities in the application of the PNSRPF correspond to historical conditions that we have failed to transcend. Ernesto Vasques Del Aguila states, As a consequence of the colonial process, race and ethnicity are domains that have become invisible in Andean countries and particularly in Peru, where talking about race is not only a sensitive topic but also a taboo that creates a hierarchy of bodies based on a very marked symbolic division that implies the subordination of indigenous people and mestizos.
This proved that the massive systematization was part of State policy. One of the post- operative symptoms is decreased libido in the women, which consequently caused conflicts in the couple due to the pain or discomfort the women feel during the sexual act.
Cases of couples who continue having a healthy sexual and conjugal life after the surgery are rare and isolated; generally, the man will opt to abandon the home. Women were abandoned and left alone not only by their husbands. In the third chapter of the book, G.
This is an omission that— despite the evolution of discourses by the commissioners of the CVR regarding this omission10—has been generating controversy and polemics since the day of its publication to date.
According to G. Despite the strenuous opposition of the Catholic Church, in Congress succeeded in legalizing surgical sterilization. Ex-President A. However, time hurls proof to the contrary. Artigos, Tamayo, These actors, who were previously disorganized, recently coordinated under the name Group of Reparation for Forced Sterilization GREF to promote the creation of an integral reparation policy for the victims of forced sterilizations and raise public awareness regarding the plight of the victims.
It is in seeking public awareness that artistic practices are installed as valuable policy tools that have made us move beyond the hegemonical memorial discourse. These projects have recovered the post-conflict memory by showing and denouncing the forces that have bio- politically controlled the body of Peruvian women.
In this brief summary, these projects use a hybrid approach between art and activism. They propose a visual language of the body as performer and actor of the critical discourse through which they communicate and assert realities.
Thus, artistic practices re-define such subjectivities and memories. During the creative process, the activist-artists and the victims are related, are affected and re-define each other; i. In turn, exposing the issue in the public sphere, under the specific form that these projects propose, enables new situations that reconstruct the case and re-define it through a new language.
This interaction and these languages open interstices of possibilities, producing a new way of perceiving the affected bodies; renovated subjectivities that fertilize specific forms of empowerment and strength.
Red Carpet As founder and coordinator of the Red Carpet, I will now proceed to analyze this specific form of postcolonial art. To date, we have performed around 12 Red Carpets on the subject of forced sterilization in diverse regions of Peru with the purpose of helping to triumph in the prolonged struggle for justice and reparation.
The ephemeral interventions called Red Carpet first appear in Lima, Peru, as a feminist critique of public spaces and art. This is the result of site-specific artistic practice, of participatory art, of political art, of Latin American non-objectivism, and interventionist art.
They are a series of civic actions that appeal for new forms of art production in order to give shape to, in solidarity, affective politics.
The problem is not that it be imaginary, but rather that it is a devastating universe. Which is the urgency that constitutes that devastating universe in the current national juncture?
All of this drastically conditions the lives of women and does not allow for a healthy coexistence under a lay State, adhered to the international norms of human rights. In short, the advances in the implementation of such rights have suffered a major setback.
A possible manner of re-articulating the resistance is through artistic-feminist strategies, where the free body clothed in red affects the public space. The concept operates through and re-semanticizes the image of a red carpet, giving it a meaning of protest as a byproduct of the politics within the artistic practice.
Traditionally, a red carpet is used to delimit the route taken by chiefs of state in ceremonial and formal occasions. Despite the resilient pursuit of justice by grassroots activists and human rights organizations, the country has yet to deliver an apology or compensation to the majority of the victims. In fact, the country has witnessed more than 2, individual cases of forced sterilization, and medical practitioners have testified that they were ordered by the government to carry out these procedures.
In the eyes of the international community and human rights organizations, such a policy was clearly a systematic violation of human rights committed by the Peruvian government.
The time is overdue for the Peruvian government to recognize the human rights travesty that went unaddressed for so long. The country should reopen the case to prosecute all of the human rights violators, including Alberto Fujimori and his health ministers, so they can formally apologize, compensate the victims, and ultimately, resolve one of the worst cases of impunity in Latin America.
