Chile Forestry Pipeline Update

My friend and colleague Rodrigo de la O Guerrero, the Maule Itata Coastkeeper in Chile, has just published an excellent field report on the waste pipeline recently built by the Nueva Aldea Forestry Complex near Cobquecura. You can read his article in Spanish here:

Through work with Save The Waves and Proplaya in Chile during 2006 - 2009 I monitored the construction of this pipeline with documentary filmmaking, water testing, community activism and education. All Points South and Pulp, Poo and Perfection are the films you can watch to educate yourself about this matter and take action - see the links list to the right here.
