save a culture on the verge of extinction!
is asking for your help to raise money to protect the rights of the
Rapa Nui , who are on the verge of extinction. The
Rapa Nui are mounting a major campaign to preserve what is left of their
culture and sacred sites -- which includes the world famous stone
carvings known as moai.
Erity Teave -- a member of the Teave, Hau Moana clan
of the Rapa Nui Nation -- has worked her entire life towards helping her people
realize fundamental rights. Even though many of us live an ocean away
from Easter Island , she reminds us that
the decades of tragic oppression of her people, by the Chilean
government, is something the human family should not allow to continue.
human spirit possesses a deep value of solidarity, which allows us to
understand and assume a responsibility to the duties of life which are to
protect life, the environment and eco-systems," said Teave.
Center is planning to send our best lawyers to support these efforts free
of charge. However, $12,000 is still needed by July 15 to cover meeting
and travel expenses. Make a contribution today and help begin a process
that will lead to new freedoms and a new life for Erity and the
Rapa Nui people. Please consider a donation today!
