Say NO to Ecuador’s Sham Oil Spill Cleanup!

It’s been over two years since Ecuador’s two major oil pipelines ruptured, spilling an estimated 672,000 gallons of crude into the Coca River. The spill affected some 27,000 Kichwa Indigenous people who drink, bathe, fish, swim, and depend on the river for clean water.

There has yet to be a full remediation. Local communities continue to confront health and economic effects from the contamination, and they still lack access to fresh water. Ecuador’s Ministry of the Environment and Water is protecting the polluters: Petroecuador and the OCP Consortium.

Tell Ecuador’s environmental agency to take immediate action, stop colluding with the oil industry, and hold the pipeline operators accountable for their toxic mess!

To: Ecuador's Ministry of the Environment and Water

It has been a year since Ecuador's two major oil pipelines ruptured, spilling an estimated 16,000 barrels of crude into the Coca River. We urge you to hold Petroecuador and OCP accountable and ensure a full remediation and restoration of the river.
