Ucayali is a region in the middle of the peruvian Amazon, near the border with Brazil, that hosts the National Park Sierra del Divisor where the homonymous river, Ucayali, one of the tributaries of the Amazon River, flows and brings life to the entire region.
On the river bank, six dead men were found some days ago. Six farmers killed by criminal local group because they refused to give up their land to be converted into PALM OIL.
Land defenders are paying with their life the corruption and inaction of the STATE!
Same question, same answer.
The lack of clarity of land titling in the Peruvian Amazon has long been a key factor for violent social conflict.
The impunity and the government corruption open doors to investors into landgrabbing activities into the Amazon bringing violence, destruction, crimes, pollution, prostitution, drugs abuses and deaths.
The State has the obligation to respect and protect human rights of Peruvian, but instead it is violating all the foundamental needs of these people.
