    HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY! Stand with Amazonian Women!

    Please call your country's Chinese embassy now View in your browser
    Stand with Amazonian Women!
    Tomorrow on International Women's Day hundreds of indigenous women from the Ecuadorian Amazon will march to protect nearly a million acres of their rainforest territory from an oil deal that Ecuador recently signed with Chinese state-owned oil company Andes Petroleum. The indigenous peoples who call the area home, the Sápara and the Kichwa of Sarayaku, have condemned the deal and refuse to sacrifice their territory for what amounts to a few hours' worth of global oil supply. Hundreds more indigenous women from throughout Ecuador will be marching with their sisters from the Amazon.

    How can you echo their message? The most impactful way is to call your country's Chinese embassy today and tomorrow and ask them to demand that Andes Petroleum pull out of the contract. Please remember to be respectful – the call should be supporting indigenous peoples and the Amazon, not against China.
    TAKE ACTION NOW
    After that please send a message to the Ecuadorian Minister of Strategic Sectors Rafael Poveda urging him to cancel the contract with Chinese oil company Andes Petroleum.Remember, we're all stronger when we stand together.


    For the Amazon,
