Dear Mr. Weill,
I am deeply concerned about Citigroup's involvement in the Camisea project in Peru. According to a study by the Smithsonian Institution, the Camisea project is located in one of the world's most biologically diverse regions. The region is also home to the legally recognized territory of two isolated and uncontacted indigenous tribes, the Nahua and Kugapakori. A major gas development project in such a culturally and environmentally sensitive area would have far-reaching and potentially devastating consequences.
I urge you to show respect for the environment and indigenous rights and by withdrawing from the Camisea Project immediately. Furthermore, I ask that you help protect the global environment by replacing all funding for fossil fuel projects with funding for sustainable energy. Please let me know what action you plan to take on these important issues.
