Regional Group for Monitoring Megaprojects in Ucayali, Peru (GRMMU) launches new blog
The Regional Group for Monitoring Megaprojects in Ucayali (El Grupo Regional de Monitoreo de Megaproyectos de Ucayali, GRMMU), based in Peru, have just announced the launch of their new blog: *http://megaproyectosucayali.blogspot.com/*.
On this blog indigenous organisations, and others who work with them, can find the latest information about the Peruvian government’s proposed highway project which will run from Pucallpa (in Peru) to Cruzeiro do Sul (in Brazil). This project threatens to have major and irreversible impacts on the area, that includes indigenous peoples’ customary lands that remain unrecognised, the Isconahua reserve for isolated peoples and the Sierra del Divisor natural protected area.
