On February 13, 2007, members of the National Civil Police stormed the home of Fernando Basilio Pérez at 5:20a.m., forcibly detaining and blindfolding him. Later on that day, Mario Bámaca was also forcibly detained. The two community leaders spent three days in jail until a lawyer from the Diocese of San Marcos managed to release them on conditions of house arrest as well as managing a habeas corpus for the remaining five leaders with orders of arrest. The case remains open to this day.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. 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.
