    So sad to watch these things in my beloved country, I really hope that soon it can be fixed and reduce the damage caused for the oil company Pluspetrol

    Pluspetrol what an evil greedy corrupt corporation. Sickening. They need to be prosecuted and clean up the damage.

    A delegation of local communities and NGOs have filed a complaint in The Hague against the oil company Pluspetrol, which is based in the Netherlands. To know more about the complaint: https://www.somo.nl/nl/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2020/03/Indigenous-Federations-vs.-Pluspetrol.pdf
