Ecuador: Open letter to President Lenin Moreno on the situation of defenders of the land, the territory and the environment
Dear President Moreno. We are writing to you from Amnesty International, Acción Ecológica, Fundación Pachamama, la Comisión Ecuménica de Derechos Humanos and Amazon Watch. Our organizations have been closely monitoring the situation of human rights defenders in Ecuador. We address you today to express our concern about the attacks against land, territory and environment defenders this year, such as the Amazon Women’s Collective members Patricia Gualinga, Nema Grefa Ushigua and Salomé Aranda, and Yaku Pérez Guartambel.
