Four Peruvian indigenous organizations have pledged to sue the government and Argentinian company Pluspetrol over plans to expand gas operations in the Camisea region in the remote Amazon.
Ironically, today's 'Mashco-Piro' are believed to be the descendants of indigenous people slaughtered and driven out of their homes by a rubber mogul named Carlos Fermin Fitzcarrald in the late 19th century. Guess who almost played Fitzcarrald in a 1980s film by Werner Herzog and even shot a few scenes in Peru? Mick Jagger.
