In 2008, the Peruvian government divided 70% of the country into more than 100 blocks. It then sold the rights to exploit this land, much of it precious rainforest, to multinational companies. In protest, a group of indigenous people decided to occupy the airfield of the oil company Pluspetrol. They wanted to let them know that they were destroying their livelihood; for years rivers had been full of oil and their children had died young.
Followed by Q&A with Michael Christoffersen on how to get access to stories and characters.
