Esther Landetta Chica is a leading member of the community-based Assembly for the Defence of Our Rivers Gala, Chico, Tenguel and River Siete. She has been targeted for a series of threats and intimidation because of her crucial role in voicing communities’ concerns about possible negative consequences of irregular mining activities and has now gone into hiding. In this document Amnesty International calls on the Ecuadorian authorities for a thorough investigation into threats made and to continue to provide protection measures to Esther Landetta.
