Pipeline Problems: Shimaa, Peru
Tuesday, August 19, 2003;
The Camisea pipeline has made life difficult for many of the Machiguenga villages in its path. In one community, Shimaa, villagers have blamed the pipeline for scaring away the animals they used to hunt, landslides, and contaminated water. One villager, Sandoval Cardenal Dominguez, lives at the bottom of the pipeline route and is now thinking about moving away.
