The town of
Nazca has recently been dumping its trash on the pampa,
destroying some of the Nazca lines in the process. This has caused some
controversy; it is believed the mayor issued the order to protest a lack
of aid to Nazca. Under President Alberto Ken'ya Fujimori's rule, Nazca
received money to turn the irrigation canals into tourist attractions.
Unfortunately, this consisted of tearing up some of the access points to
the canals and replacing them with reconstructions of how they were
believed to have looked.
Since 1997 Nazca is the location of a major Canadian gold mining
operation. The people who were living on the land for the previous 2000
years did not have title to the land so they were displaced without
legal problems. Since then there have been some attempts to legalize
poor citizens' ownership of their land and their fixed property, in
response to Hernando de Soto's research on the poor.
