Tell European Banks to Stop Financing the Amazon Oil Trade!

On top of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic spreading into their ancestral territories, Indigenous peoples in the Amazon are also suffering the consequences of devastating oil spills that have yet to be cleaned up.

Meanwhile, in spite of their environmental and human rights policy commitments, many major European banks are financing the extraction and trade of crude oil in the region, making them complicit in the destruction it has wrought on Indigenous communities.

Call on these European banks to announce measurable and enforceable policies to immediately stop all financing of any oil-related activities, including trade, in the Amazon!

7,225 people have taken this action so far.

Your banks have been complicit in the impacts that oil extraction has in the Amazon region, including human rights violations and environmental pollution like the recent oil spill in the Napo and Coca Rivers of the Ecuadorian Amazon. You are bankrolling the destruction of the Amazon and our climate, despite documented opposition from Indigenous peoples. In response to Indigenous peoples' demands for a moratorium on all oil extraction in the Amazon, we call on you to announce measurable and enforceable policies to immediately stop all financing of any oil-related activities, including trade, in the Amazon.
