It is not only here in Ecuador that people are hitting the streets to demonstrate for the rights of nature. At COP19 in Warsaw, Polen, people marched dressed as clowns, polar bears, penguins with large inflatable globes and a variety colorful banners to call for action now!
Today, Tuesday November 19th, activist from the Danish NGO, IBIS, finally manage to get a hold at the official, Ecuadorian delegation attending the Climate Summit in order to declare that a large number of the Danes support the Ecuadorian civil society in their struggle for protecting the Yasuní National Park and their demand for a referendum on the issue. Also they clarified that they will continue to monitor developments in Ecuador along with many more civilian organizations worldwide.
The theme of Yasuní is certainly more than an Ecuadorian matter and an international concern is definitely present.
