Indigenous #EarthDefenders in Ecuador defend their rights AND our natural world.

Indigenous Earth Defenders in Ecuador from the Amazon to the Andes are facing increasing danger. Patricia Gualinga, Nema Grefa, Salomé Andrada, and Yaku Pérez – among others – have suffered death threats, physical attacks, stigmatization campaigns, and more. Right now, Ecuador's government has a key opportunity to take action to prevent more attacks and keep these Earth Defenders safe. Earlier this year, Latin American governments drafted the Escazú Agreement, which, among other things, will provide protection for Earth Defenders in a region where defending the land, rivers, and forests is more dangerous than anywhere else in the world. Join us in calling on President Moreno to take action for Earth Defenders by signing the Agreement!
