Amazon Oil Pipeline-Pollution, Corruption & Poverty


Dear Friends in N America, please help us prevent the OCP pipeline company from initiating a rash of new oil wells in the National Parks and Indigenous reserves of the Amazon Headwaters of Ecuador. Please protest the OCP.

* Contact us for copies of this video Amazon Oil Pipeline-Pollution, Corruption & Poverty - by donation or free to anyone who'll host a screening for family or friends, specify language: Spanish, German, English, Italian, Portuguese, or French.

Activists in the following countries are protesting to the IMF, WestLB, Encana and Ecuador as well as their own oil companies and banks: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, USA

* Please help us get the message out. $8 covers our costs, another $10 sends one Spanish video free to Argentina with a "What You Can Do" flier with the addresses of THEIR corporations on there for them to email or call.

* Please write emails, faxes and letters of protest about OCP.

It doesn't matter how short your letters are, they are counted. If enough of us make ourselves heard, things will change.

Please write to the US office of the German Bank WestLB asking them to pull out of the OCP project and that they demand repayment of the 900 million dollars they have loaned to OCP. One of the contractual conditions for this loan was that OCP adhere to World Bank standards for protection of nature and of indigenous communities. OCP has blatantly and continuously breached this contract (see
