An Oil Company in Peru & The Misleading Art of Commercial Deception
“Working in harmony with nature and the community” reads the front of a pamphlet I picked up at this year’s Expo Amazonica in Iquitos. The cover photo shows indigenous women in their native community, with the backdrop of the ever-green Amazon Rainforest. On the top left is the logo of Pluspetrol. Judging by the illustration, and not knowing who or what Pluspetrol is – although the name reveals its intentions – you might first think of an environmental NGO, an eco-tourism venture or a conservation organization.
