This video documents the extent of the environmental impact provoked by the activities of an oil company in the Equatorial Amazon. Oil-related activity in the indigenous communities of north-east Ecuador has had a very serious social impact. Since the 1960s, various companies have been damaging the ecosystems of indigenous communities who live in shelters, supposedly protected by the state, while they are affected by disease and their internal relationships gradually break down.
