On Thursday the 12th of March, the Peruvian indigenous federations united under PUINADMUDT Platform invite you for an interactive meeting with indigenous leaders from the Amazon.
Public debate with Peruvian indigenous leaders from the Amazon on the destruction of their habitat and the activities of a Dutch 'letterbox' oil company.
During the public debate, the leaders of the affected indigenous tribes from the Peruvian Amazon will share how their habitat has been affected by the activities of an oil company, what role land rights play therein, and what effects this has on their lives. They will share about their continues fight for justice.
Experts will unpack the land rights and environmental rights violations in Peru, the lack of due diligence, how this is linked to the Netherlands where the company has its headquarters, tax and letterbox structures, and Dutch political implications.
