Request for Consideration of the Situation of the Indigenous Peoples living in Voluntary Isolation and Initial Contact in the Kugapakori Nahua Nanti Reserve in Peru under the UN CERD's Urgent Action and Early Warning Procedures. 25 January 2013

Indigenous peoples' organisations in Peru have appealed to the Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination (CERD), a UN human rights body, to prevent the expansion of the Camisea gas project within the Kugapakori-Nahua-Nanti Reserve because it could lead to the extermination of peoples living in isolation. The request has been signed by The Ucayali Regional Organisation of AIDESEP (ORAU), the Machigeunga Council of the River Urubamba (COMARU), the Inter Ethnic Association for the development of the Peruvian Amazon (AIDESEP) and the Forest Peoples Programme.
