A Message from the Achuar to Canada


A Message from the Achuar to Canada

"I am very concerned I can't stand alone in defense of my people.
We must stand together in solidarity."
– Peas Peas Auyi

Last night we gave a keynote about the Achuar/Talisman campaign to a packed house as part of Public Interest Alberta's advocacy conference Fighting for our Future: People Power vs Corporate Control. The evening featured a special multimedia message from Achuar leader Peas Peas Auyi, who called up from the Amazon to be sure we recorded and delivered his words of gratitude to allies in Canada:

"Every day, across the globe, society suffers the environmental and social impacts of extractive industries. The history of the extractive industries is filled with negative stories...

"I would like to thank our allies in Canada and Public Interest Alberta for their solidarity in this struggle. Thanks to the many actions taken in defense of our territory we have achieved a great victory: a large and powerful corporation, Talisman, has been forced to leave our ancestral territory and Oil Block 64."
