PUERTO MALDONADO, Peru — In this sweltering Amazonian city, Pope Francis on Friday gave a stirring defense of the region’s indigenous people, whose lands and way of life are threatened by industry and government, leaving almost no institutions to protect them. It was a departure from an otherwise purely religious visit to Peru, where Francis arrived on Thursday from Chile, but it fit squarely within his advocacy for environmental preservation. Facing a crowded sports arena — where the main stage was neatly divided between clerics sitting on chairs and indigenous people in traditional garments sitting on the ground — Francis said he understood the local challenges. He deplored, on one hand, “the pressure being exerted by great business interests that want to lay hands on its petroleum, gas, lumber, gold and forms of agro-industrial monocultivation” and, on the other hand, threats from policies that ostensibly aim to conserve land “without taking into account” its inhabitants. He also criticized those who call indigenous rights a “hindrance” to economic development. “The fact is, your lives cry out against a style of life that is oblivious to its own real cost,” he said. The speech resonated with indigenous leaders here, who have expressed hopes that the papal visit would finally cast a spotlight on their plight. But they also asked why indigenous leaders had been left to stand on the sidelines. “It’s incoherent, it’s contradictory, to have an event to show the world the problems of the indigenous people and not let their principal authorities speak,” said Julio Cusurichi, a native


Shipibo and president of the Federation of Natives of the Madre de Dios River and Its Tributaries, or Fenamad. “We are again expected to be subdued by the Church?” asked Edwin Vásquez, who leads the Coordinator of Indigenous Organizations of the Amazon River Basin, or Coica, an umbrella group. “I’m Catholic, I believe in God, but I’ve learned not to trust priests.” Mr. Vasquez and Mr. Cusurichi, among the most prominent indigenous leaders here, said they had been denied, at the last minute, a chance to address the pope. (Mr. Cusurichi gave Francis a present, but did not speak.) “We’re scared because people who are from other places want our people to disappear,” said Luis Miguel Tayori, an indigenous man who spoke at the event. The pope’s visit has overwhelmed Puerto Maldonado. The stadium had capacity for 100,000 attendees, more than the city’s total population. The city was closed to traffic, forcing everyone to commute to events on foot. More than 2,500 police officers dotted almost every corner of the city. Hundreds more were dispatched from other cities.Small and remote, Puerto Maldonado seemed an unlikely candidate for a papal visit. Unlike Peru’s bigger cities, its history does not trace to the Andean nation’s colonial past, when Spaniards urbanized and evangelized at the same time. But Puerto Maldonado represents the gateway to two bluntly contradictory worlds that sit within Francis’ interests. The city provides access to pristine rain forest, jungle lodges and biodiversity research stations, but it is also the entry point to a 21st century gold rush that has not only eroded trees and rivers but also the rule of law. From above, the mined areas look like orange scars piercing a green blanket made of trees. From the ground, the rise of illegal mining in the region has been accompanied by a rise in violent crime and human trafficking, which Francis called a “devastating assault on life.” Mining also has threatened the territories where indigenous populations live. Tons of mercury, a byproduct of gold mining, have been poured into rivers. “We the indigenous people are the ones who drink water directly from the rivers and eat its fish,” Mr. Cusurichi said. “City dwellers don’t do that.”


In his message, Francis seemed to agree. “We have to break with the historical paradigm that views Amazonia as an inexhaustible source of supplies for other countries without concern for its inhabitants,” he said. Others say mining is facing too much of a stigma in a city that has boomed in the past decade partly because of it. Maria Quispe Ccoca, from Huepetuhe, a town that has come to symbolize the region’s gold rush, said she had hoped the pope would strike a conciliatory note without demonizing miners. “We need peace, reconciliation, especially in the far-flung towns of our Amazon jungle,” said Ms. Quispe Ccoca, who traveled to Puerto Maldonado to see Francis. But indigenous leaders say they have had enough. “We need a proper indigenous economy that is based on a sustainable use of the rain forest,” Mr. Vásquez said. “We need an alternative to hell, and hell is mining.” WASHINGTON — Representative Patrick Meehan, a Pennsylvania Republican who has taken a leading role in fighting sexual harassment in Congress, used thousands of dollars in taxpayer money to settle his own misconduct complaint after a former aide accused him last year of making unwanted romantic overtures to her, according to several people familiar with the settlement. A married father of three, Mr. Meehan, 62, had long expressed interest in the personal life of the aide, who was decades younger and had regarded the congressman as a father figure, according to three people who worked with the office and four others with whom she discussed her tenure there. But after the woman became involved in a serious relationship with someone outside the office last year, Mr. Meehan professed his romantic desires for her — first in person, and then in a handwritten letter — and he grew hostile when she did not reciprocate, the people familiar with her time in the office said. Life in the office became untenable, so she initiated the complaint process, started working from home and ultimately left the job. She later reached a confidential agreement with Mr. Meehan’s office that included a settlement for an undisclosed amount to be paid from Mr. Meehan’s congressional office fund.


On Saturday, John Elizandro, Mr. Meehan’s communications director, issued a statement saying that the congressman “denies these allegations” and “has always treated his colleagues, male and female, with the utmost respect and professionalism.” Continue reading the main story RELATED COVERAGE House and Senate Are ‘Among the Worst’ for Harassment, Representative Says NOV. 13, 2017 Blake Farenthold, Texas Congressman Accused of Sexual Harassment, Will Not Run Again DEC. 14, 2017 Tawdry Tales Depict a Texas Congressman’s Frat House on the Hill DEC. 11, 2017 John Conyers to Leave Congress Amid Harassment Claims DEC. 5, 2017 House Republican Trent Franks Resigns Amid Harassment Investigation DEC. 7, 2017 Mr. Meehan called on the former aide to waive the confidentiality agreement in the settlement “to ensure a full and open airing of all the facts.” Mr. Elizandro did not respond to follow-up questions about why Mr. Meehan had agreed to the settlement and the confidentiality provision if the allegations were false. Alexis Ronickher, a lawyer for the former aide, called Mr. Meehan’s statement “a desperate effort to preserve his career.” She said the congressman had demanded confidentiality in the first place, and was now asking her client to waive it knowing that she would not agree because she “prizes her privacy above all else.” After this article was published online, AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for the House speaker, Paul D. Ryan, said that Mr. Meehan was being removed immediately from the House Ethics Committee, where he has helped investigate sexual misconduct claims, and that the panel would investigate the allegations against him. In addition, Mr. Ryan told Mr. Meehan that he should repay the taxpayer funds, Ms. Strong said. Sexual misconduct accusations against powerful men across a range of industries in recent months have prompted a national conversation about gender dynamics in the workplace, and the inadequacy of support systems for victims. In Congress, several


lawmakers have left office or announced their retirements in recent months over sexual harassment claims. Still, Congress remains a workplace where victims say they have few effective avenues for recourse. Mr. Meehan’s case sheds new light on secretive congressional processes for handling such complaints, which advocates say are slanted to favor abusers, allowing them to use the vast resources of the federal government to intimidate, isolate and silence their victims. As a member of the Ethics Committee, Mr. Meehan was tasked with being a part of the solution. The panel has initiated investigations into sexual misconduct claims against at least four congressmen in recent months. Two have resigned: Trent Franks, Republican of Arizona, and John Conyers Jr., Democrat of Michigan. The other two, Blake Farenthold, Republican of Texas, and Ruben Kihuen, a freshman Democrat from Nevada, remain in office but have said they will not seek re-election. Mr. Meehan has been pushing for protections for domestic violence victims since his time as a local prosecutor. In Congress, he has sponsored legislation mandating the reporting of sexual violence, and he is a member of a bipartisan congressional task force to end such violence. This account is based on interviews with 10 people, including friends and former colleagues of the former aide and others who worked around the office. The New York Times is not naming the former aide, who followed the recommended procedures for reporting harassment but came away from the experience feeling traumatized, according to several people with whom she shared her feelings.
