Support Indigenous Rights in the Peruvian Amazon
 
Palm oil, oil and gas company activity is increasingly affecting Shipibo communities on and around the Ucayali river - one of the main tributaries of the Amazon - in Peru. Support educational workshops to enable the Shipibo people to be more aware of their rights so they can defend their territories better, make more informed decisions regarding the activity of extractive industries in their homelands, and learn how to use new media to monitor and publicize harm caused by those activities project reportread updates from the field

Congress has just announced the results of recently conducted environmental tests in the area, signalling unprecedented levels of contamination that in some areas exceed 222-382 national water quality standards! The Quechua now require legal representation to demand health care, environmental clean-up and fair compensation. project reportread updates from the field
