Experiments with truth: 9/22/10

    • Trade unions, university students, peasants and other groups in Peru are holding a 48-hour strike in Cusco that has suspended train services to the Inca citadel Machu Picchu due to protests over an irrigation project that critics say could leave communities without water.
    • Six activists chained themselves to a crane in western Turkey on Monday to protest a hydroelectric dam that will mean the destruction of an ancient city of Allianoi.
    • An estimated 1500 Scouts gathered in the little town of Vlaardingen near Rotterdam on Saturday to create an aerial image of 10:10, a global campaign to cut carbon emissions by 10 percent a year starting this year.
    • A group of 12 Chilean activists began an open-ended “massive solidarity fast” on Sept. 14 to support indigenous Mapuche prisoners who have been carrying out a liquids-only hunger strike since July 12.
