Student groups, environmental organizations, scientists, famous personalities like Oscar-winner Jared Leto, the social activist and idol of the anti-globalisation movement Naomi Klein (“No Logo”) or the Indian environmental activist Vandana Shiva as well as many individuals have sent us their greetings and best wishes to convoke a national referendum in order to protect the Yasuní-ITT from the invasion of oil companies.

Thanks so much to everybody!

Furthermore, in these days Ecuadorian embassies and consulates in various countries are receiving LETTERS FROM YASUNÌ SUPPORTERS  in order to demand to respect the rights of nature, the human rights as well as the constitutional rights of the Ecuadorian civil society to convoke a referendum to avoid the oil spilling in the Yasuní-ITT.

In a view days the civil society alliance ofenvironmental, social, and indigenous organizations in Ecuador, Yasunidos, will hand the Ecuadorian government 600 000 signatures that are needed to call for a National Referendum in order to stop the oil exploitation in YASUNI NATIONAL PARK. If the Ecuadorian government accepts the signatures of the Ecuadorians, this will be the question of the first referendum worldwide to protect the rights of nature: “Are you in favor that the Ecuadorian government keeps the oil underground indefinitely under the Yasuní-I TT, also known as Block 43?”

JOIN THE YASUNIDOS MOVEMENT and support the Ecuadorians in their constitutional right for a national referendum that could save the Yasuní rainforest! Protecting the Amazon and preventing a possible ethnocide of the indigenous people in the area should not know any national borders. Let´s speak worldwide with one voice – for life, against the oil!
