Canadian company drills Ecuador

I would cut out the middle person and support the indigenous in Ecuador, Correa has not been a consistent friend of tierra madre. Any way just had this

Dear friends,

The Canandian oil company Ivanhoe Energy obtained a concession from the Ecuadorian government for an oil exploitation project in Block 20, which lies in the UNESCO Sumaco Biosphere Reserve, in the Ecuadorian province of Napo. It is projected that the project will extract between 4.5 and 7 million barrels of petroleum from 30 or more wells. The project has not been sufficiently studied and we worry that it will have major social and environmental impacts.
