Amazonian indigenous leaders speak out on the critical situation in Peru’s most prolific oil block, 192. Featuring Kichwa leader and President of FECONAT, Fernando Chuje Ruiz from the Tiger river, and Kichwa leader and President of ORIAP, Wilmer Chavez from the Pastaza river.
The right to free, prior and informed consent is one of indigenous peoples’ fundamental collective rights. Yet in the northern Peruvian Amazon rainforest, on indigenous lands in this area known as Block 192 – the country’s largest and most important oil field, this right is now at risk once again.
