Q’orianka Kilcher

President Obama met with Peruvian President Alan Garcia at the White House on Tuesday amidst growing unrest in Peru over the Alan Garcia government’s free-market policies that open up indigenous lands to resource extraction. Outside the White House, Hollywood actor Q’orianka Kilcher chained herself to a fence, her body covered in black paint to represent oil. She was forcibly removed and the police had to use a saw to cut through her chains.
