Seen the movie “Crude, the price of oil,” made in Ecuador, 2009, about oil exploitation by Chevron. Its about an extremely arduous legal battle, with claims into the billions. It now seems that Chevron is losing its case in an American court, all the while simply denying all responsibility for pollution, diseases and casualties.
What is happening in the Amarakaeri Communal Reserve is a replay of Ecuador. Just as in the movie, it is being played out again step by step right now in real time here in Peru. We sincerely hope that everybody who feels so sick and miserable after seeing Crude will read our report here. They can actively do something themselves to stop this replay. Our foundation “Biodiversiteit en Educatie” is looking for activists, lawyers, journalists, sponsors and donors to support the Harakmbut and their Reserva Amarakaeri. In exchange for your support, we simple biologists, will show you thebreathtaking beauty of the Amarakaeri tropical rainforest.
