Oil companies have been exploiting the natural resources and the people of Ecuador for decades. Because the countryâ€™s economy depends heavily on crude oil, large petroleum corporations continue to enter the Amazon region to drill in untapped areas, forcing local communities to fight back. Ikiam examines the effects of oil damage (and its possible prevention) upon environments, health, economy, and rapidly changing cultures, and also uncovers dark hidden truths about the dangers of taking a stance against such a frighteningly dominant power.
