Ecuador: Fear for safety/Threats

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 28/003/2006

Indigenous leader, María Iza Quinatoa, has reportedly been the target of an increasing campaign of threats and intimidation. Amnesty International believes that this may be linked to her campaigning work against the signing of a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Ecuador and the USA. The organization is concerned for her safety, and that of her family and other members of the staff at Unión de Organizaciones Campesinas de Cotopaxi (UNOCANC), Cotopaxi Peasants Organizations' Union, of which she is President of the women's section.
