Q&A with priest and activist Father Marco, director Stephanie Boyd and Marleen van Ruijven, Economic Relations Officer with Amnesty International. Moderated by Maja Haanshof, editor-in-chief of Latin American magazine La Chispa.
Father Marco Arana grew up in a poor mountainous region of Peru and led local resistance against an American mining company. In mid-February, the activist was suspended by the Catholic Archbishop of Lima, because he announced his candidacy in the 2011 presidential elections. As the leader of the small Earth and Freedom movement, Marco Arana engages in debates in Peru about the environment, indigenous rights and social justice.
Maja Haanskorf is a historian, theatre expert and journalist who has been fascinated by Latin America for years. Since 2000, she has been the editor-in-chief of La Chispa, the only Dutch-language magazine in Latin America
