Milagro Sala is a leader of the Tupac Amaru Neighborhood Organization in Jujuy, Argentina. This NGO provides poor Indigenous families with food, medicine, education, and cooperative jobs. In December 2015, authorities moved to cut off resources allocated to cooperatives. Milagro Sala and other activists took to the streets to protest the decision. Since January 2016, Ms. Sala has been arrested several times and tried for alleged transgressions. While imprisoned, her health has deteriorated, and she is currently under house arrest.
