Ecuador's New President Is Respecting Indigenous Rights – Make Sure He Keeps It Up!

The tide may be turning in Ecuador and we need to build upon recent victories to ensure that they last. Take action to show President Moreno that the international community celebrates his commitment to end all new oil and mining concessions unless they first comply with prior consultation of the local communities.

This is a HUGE victory for Ecuador's indigenous movement, the environment, and for the global effort to keep fossil fuels in the ground! To ensure these promises are kept, it's critical that the international community acts in solidarity with Ecuador's indigenous nations and calls on President Moreno to honor his pledge.

Dear President Moreno –

We write to celebrate the commitment you made to ban oil and mining concessions without prior consultation with local communities.

Commitments like these are only as good as their details and implementation, so we support the indigenous nations of Ecuador who call upon you to fulfil this commitment in accordance with international standards of the right to free, prior, and informed consent.

We call on you to honor this pledge and to follow through on the calls to grant amnesties and pardons to indigenous leaders criminalized for defending their rights and territories.

Thank you.
