Climate warning

Ecuador’s president is trying to drill for fossil fuels in the Amazon rainforest, against the will of the people!

Drilling was banned last year in a historic national referendum championed by Indigenous groups -- but the new president wants to ignore all that and keep the oil flowing. Allies in Ecuador have launched a fierce campaign to resist this dangerous reversal, but they need a global spotlight to amp up the pressure on President Noboa. Let’s stand with Ecuadorians to defend democracy and the rainforest.
It was a stunning victory: 58% of Ecuadorians voted to ban fossil fuel drilling in the super-biodiverse Yasuni National Park last August, reigniting hope for democracy and the planet in movements around the world.

But less than six months later, Ecuador's new president wants to carry on with drilling anyway!
Indigenous leaders and allies in Ecuador are mobilizing like crazy to ensure their democracy and rainforest are protected -- and they need us to show President Noboa that drilling against the will of the people will unleash a powerful global backlash.

      This decision could have devastating effects on the environment and indigenous communities. It's important to prioritize conservation efforts and respect the rights of the people and the land.

            Environmental sustainability and community consent should be prioritized over short-term economic gains.

                Advocating for sustainable and responsible policies should be a shared global priority to address the challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss.

                    Its so disappointing when leaders go against the will of the people, this drilling should not be allowed

                      This is not okay! The people's vote should be respected or the leaders should go!

                        Aren't these leaders supposed to take care of their citizens? Why are they putting lives at jeopardy?
