Extending across the Tigre, Corrientes, Pastaza, and Marañón river basins in Peru’s remote Loreto province, two oil blocks and a large pipeline lay over indigenous territory. One of the oil fields is block 192, the largest-yielding one in Peru. For over 40 years, the indigenous Kichwa, Quechua and Achuar peoples who live near the oil field have been exposed to severe pollution, including heavy metals, and human rights abuses.
Since 2015, the Peruvian government has attempted to extend production of oil at the block for another 40 years. The Amazonian federations organized in PUINAMUDT have responded by pushing for remediation and justice through a process of community consultation, establishing critical precedents for future hydrocarbon cases.
