    “The situation of indigenous peoples in certain areas of the country is appalling”, said OHCHR rapporteur Mutuma Ruteere

    The United Nations human rights expert on racism urged Argentina to take urgent measures to sustainably address the invisibility, marginalization and systematic exclusion of indigenous peoples in the country.
