MANIFESTO IN DEFENSE OF THE YASUNI NATIONAL PARK

Posted on Actualizado enn

Manifiesto geografos criticosBy Critical Geography Collective of Ecuador See below the manifiesto of the Critical Geography Collective of Ecuador which debunks several myths around the decision of Ecuador´s government to move ahead with oil drilling in Yasuní. The myth, for example, that the “drilling will only affect 1×1000 of the park”, which is based on a simplistic view of the Amazon ecosystem, putting at risk, for example, huge underground aquifers. They also explore the myth that the Amazon is a “demographic void”, ignoring the presence of the Tagaeri and Taromenane indigenous groups in voluntary isolation. The Collective point out that “this is a deceitful strategy that has repeatedly failed in the history of our country.”
