Thanks to the work of Source International, Peru declares a state of emergency in the Amazon due to oil pollution

Thanks to the work of Source International, the Peruvian government has declared an environmental state of emergency in the Pastaza region, in the Amazon forest.

Source supported the indigenous groups Quichua and Ashuar in their battle for justice. You can download our document that clearly demonstrates the impact of oil extraction in the area here.

The next step is to request the restoration of environmental damage to the company. Our work is not finished, it has just begun.
