Subject: Ecuador and Oil

Dear Allies -

After talking with them for months, the Sacramento Bee has finally published
their article on oil in Ecuador. It's included in a special 20 page section
called "State of Denial." It's incredibly thorough, covering the OCP,
Texaco's toxic legacy, Sarayacu resistance, and the myth of oil as an
economic panacea. There are several amazing photos as well.

The section begins: "California's environmental legacy of conserving
resources at home is on a collision course with its habit of consuming them
in record quantities from abroad. And often the losers are impoverished
citizens and communities - and spectacular ecosystems - in remote parts of
the globe, where money speaks louder than the land. "

The Ecuador part is included in Chapter 1.
To read the report, go to:

Companeros/as -
