Peru: Undermining Justice is a film about corporate greed, and the sophisticated ways multinational companies avert justice for Al Jazeera International as part of its People and Power strand.
Conflicts between mining companies and local communities have exploded across the world in recent times, as often remote societies are forced to accept mining projects they fear will destroy their environment and livelihoods. This is the story of one such mining company, and a group of local Peruvians who have tried everything to stop their livelihood being destroyed, with disastrous consequences.
