Peru's uncontacted Amazon tribes under attack

http://news.mongabay.com/2008/1022-peru_indigenous.html?email

Excerpt:

Illegal logging in the Peruvian Amazon is driving uncontacted tribes into Brazil where they are in conflict over food and resources with other uncontacted groups, according to a Reuters interview with a leading expert on indigenous tribes.

Jose Meirelles of Brazil's Indian affairs agency FUNAI told Reuters he was seeing evidence of uncontacted tribes fleeing loggers in Peru.

"Putting it simply, the loggers are killing and expelling the isolated people. It's clear that they (the Indians) are coming here," Meirelles told Reuters from Brazil.

As the Indians flee they move into territories controlled by other tribes, resulting in conflict.

"On one side they are persecuted and killed by loggers and when they flee they come into conflict with rival isolated tribes. So they have to keep looking for space where they can feed themselves," added Beatriz Huertas, an representative for CIPIACI an indigenous rights group who spent three weeks in the border area in June.
...

Peru has been under fire recently for accelerating deforestation rates as well as a massive expansion in the area under concession for oil and gas development. A recent study showed that 72 percent of the Peruvian Amazon including designated indiegenous territories is now controlled by energy companies.

Extract from the film"The Emerald Forest" by John Boorman 1985;

"...We will pray for the frogs to croak non stop and alltogether,for then it will rain untill the river rises and floods,destroying everything in its path...".Good idea!. Wink
