1 Amazing response - Oil showdown in the Amazon on Sun Feb 03, 2013 8:27 am

Urgent! We're nearly there. In hours Avaaz will hold a press conference
in Quito with indigenous leaders to unveil our call to save the Amazon. Let's reach 1 million fast -- sign now and then share this with everyone!


Dear friends,






Ecuador’s Kichwa people have asked for our help to stop the government turning their forest home into an oil field.
A massive scandal in the global media challenging President Correa to
act on his environmental principles could persuade him to pull back and
stop the Amazon oil rush. Sign the petition now:








There's an indigenous community in Ecuador that lives in a part of the
Amazon where there are jaguars and more animal life than the whole of
North America! It's an incredibly pristine, remote area and the whole
ecosystem has been preserved. But the government is threatening to go
in and look for oil
.


The local tribe is resisting, but usually oil companies go in, buy off
the people and break up the community. The tribe is thrilled that people
across the world might back them up and make such a stink that we could
save their land. The president of Ecuador claims to stand for
indigenous rights and the environment, but he's just quietly come up
with a new plan to bring oil speculators in to look at 4 million
hectares of jungle. If we can say 'wait a minute, you're supposed to
be the green president who says no one can buy Ecuador', we could expose
him for turning his back on his commitments just as he is fighting for
re-election
.


He does not want a PR nightmare right now. If we can help this
one community defend their ancestral land and challenge the president to
keep to his word, we could make him reconsider the whole plan. Sign the petition now and tell everyone -- let's help save this beautiful forest:

After Texaco and other oil companies polluted Ecuadorian waters and irreversibly devastated precious ecosystems, Correa
led his country to be the world’s first nation to recognize the rights
of “Mother Earth” in its constitution. He announced Ecuador was not for
sale,
and in Yasuni National Park promoted an innovative initiative
where other governments pay Ecuador to keep oil in the ground to protect
the rainforest rather than destroy it. But now he’s on the verge of selling out.


Shockingly, the Kichwa land is partly in Yasuni National Park.
But even more shocking is Correa's bigger plan -- in days government
officials begin a world tour to offer foreign investors the right to drill across 4 million hectares of forest
(an area larger than the Netherlands!) Ecuador, as any country, may
argue it has the right to profit from its natural resources, but the
constitution itself says it must respect indigenous rights and its
amazing forests, which bring millions in tourist dollars every year.


Right now, Correa is in a tough fight to win a second term as
president. It’s the perfect time to make him honour his environmental
promises
and make this green constitution come to life. Sign now to stand with the Kichwa people and save their forest:



http://www.avaaz.org/en/oil_in_the_amazon_global_rb/?bmtzqdb&v=21584


Our community has fought year after year to protect the Amazon in Brazil
and Bolivia, and won many victories standing in solidarity with
indigenous communities. Now it’s Ecuador’s turn -- let’s respond to this
urgent call for action and save their forest.


With hope and determination,


Alex, Pedro, Alice, Laura, Marie, Ricken, Taylor, Morgan and all the Avaaz team
