Ecuador´s president has fired his environment minister after he refused to open up the Yasuní National Park, home of Tagaeri and Taromenane peoples, for oil drilling. A former oil executive who had worked for the environment department should now rubber stamp the oil exploration plans as environment minister. Tell him to protect the Yasuní National Park. There has already been a catastrophic oil spill by Texaco in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

There are only four weeks left to prevent a genocide against the Kawahiva people in the Brazilian Amazon.

We need to achieve that all fossil fuels will stay in the ground and that we will cover our energy needs up to 100% by renewables so that we can keep global warming below 1.5°C. Next month our governments will convene at the COP24 to implement the Paris Agreement.
