Celebrities Protest For Environmental And Human Rights In Peru

Drama is going DOWN in Peru and celebrities like Q’orianka Kilcher (Pocahontas in The New World), Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson and many more are rolling up their sleeves to get involved!

According to Heart of Green:

“The Peruvian government under President Alan Garcia is auctioning off the indigenous peoples’ lands to oil, mining and logging corporations without their consent. Peru has already opened 75% of its Amazon territory to oil exploration. In the last month, Garcia has signed contracts for 15 more oil concessions in the Amazon.”

Essentially, President Garcia is making it easier to transfer the land owned by the indigenous people to large international corporations, who, not surprisingly, are violently exploiting the environment and local communities. 

To learn more about this rapidly-growing issue, check out  Q’orianka Kilcher’s blog, sign AmazonWatch.org’s petition or simply check out the video below! Let’s end this junk!
