Instituto Internacional de Derecho y Sociedad (IIDS) supporting Federation of the Achuar Nationality of Peru (FENAP)

$5,000 to support a delegation of Achuar and Wampis Indigenous leaders to pressure GeoPark at its annual shareholders meeting in Santiago, Chile, to cancel their planned oil extraction project on Indigenous territory in the Peruvian Amazon. During the delegation GeoPark announced it is withdrawing its request for the environmental permit to drill for oil in Block 64. This was shortly after their plans were set back by roughly 6 months after the Achuar challenged the company’s Environmental Impact Study though a series of documented objections, to which GeoPark was forced to respond.
