The Peruvian Government is yet again failing to protect the rights of its Indigenous citizens, and if history is anything to go by it is no wonder that the Matses tribe fear for themselves and other nearby tribal peoples

The bottom line is this is Peru's indifference to its indigenous population. A pathethically sad commentary to Peru's government.

"Our leaders have fought with the Government many times, but they must be deaf or they just don't respect us." --- Both!!

I had never heard of the Canadian Oil company Pacific Rubiales before. But now I know that they belong in The Hall of Shame! Just like ChevWrong, BP = Big Profit, bloody sHELL, and the whole Big Oil shebang!
Get out of The Amazon - DAMMIT!!!

That's terrible! Peru's government needs to get their butts in gear and care about their native people and help them.

Sadly these indigenous people have no rights or voice.

It seems a nation's ethics go out of the window when there's oil involved...

Big business, big money always seems to trump the environment and indigenous people.

Sounds like Peru's government is sitting in on Republican strategy meetings.
