Argentina: Shale drilling threatens Argentina's Mapuche

Argentina has the fourth largest shale reservoir according to a recent study by the us energy department. It sits above the Neuquen basin in the Patagonia. The area was once exploited for oil, during the 90s boom, and indigenous communities there say they dont want energy companies back in their land. Al Jazeera's Monica Villamizar reports from Neuquen, Argentina.
