Oil Spills Stain Peruvian Amazon

From Scientific American by Emiliano Rodríguez Mega:

“The executives at Petróleos del Perú (PETROPERÚ) have had better days. The Interethnic Association for the Development of the Peruvian Rainforest, representing the local indigenous peoples, has organized protests and set up a picket outside the Lima headquarters of the state enterprise they say is responsible for leaks that released 3,000 barrels of oil (about 477,000 liters) in several rivers in the Peruvian Amazon.”
