Lima, August 24 (RHC)-- In Peru, members of Indigenous Amazonian Nations have seized control of some of the oil facilities operated by the Canadian company Frontera Energy Corp, demanding the Peruvian government carry out a consultation with the Indigenous nations before signing a new contract with the oil company.
One organizer of the group, a leader of the Rio Pastaza Tribe, Aurelio Chino, told reporters: "If they don’t give us a good answer to our previous demand, then I can assure you my people will rise up. We’re not going to just sit around, and for sure we are going to defend ourselves to the end, to teach them to respect us."
