"The people who were kidnapped are not here with us today because we can not guarantee their safe passage," explained Eibar Fernandez, co-ordinator of Jambaló's global projects. Fernandez clarified that the assembly was open to media because, "We have nothing to hide... We want the world to know that Indians can manage their own justice." The local radio station, the Communications Network of the ACIN, Colombia's Caracol TV, Al Jazeera and Telesur all covered the event.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada.

Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
