Ecuador: Fear for safety/Death threats

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 28/014/2004

José Serrano Salgado, a member of the Ecuadorian non-governmental organization (NGO) Centro de Derechos Económicos y Sociales (CDES), Economic and Social Rights Centre, was reportedly threatened with death on 25 April. The threats are believed to be linked to the organization's support for the Sarayaku indigenous community in Pastaza province, which opposes plans by a foreign oil company to drill in their territory. Amnesty International is concerned for his safety and the safety of all other members of the organization.
