PANAMA. Indigenous groups from all over the country organized a march to demand the ratification of an international agreement that comprises all the rights of the indigenous which have been already recognized by the Panamanian State.

Indigenous groups leaders are saying that Panama is the only country that has not ratified Convention 169 of the International Labor Organization, although it has seven indigenous groups and five Indian regions.
