Peru could elect indigenous President on a green platform

Greens have been winning huge votes in Latin America, Marina Silva gained 20% in the Brazilian Presidential election and in Colombia the Greens came second in the Presidential election.

A Green challenge is being launched by the indigenous leader Alberto Pizango, who was exiled after Peruvian police killed over a hundred people at Bagua during protests to preserve the Amazon from oil companies.
