This Amazon tribe won a groundbreaking lawsuit against Big Oil and saved their neck of the rainforest. The Ecuadorian government planned to drill for oil throughout south-central Ecuadorian Amazon.

The Waorani people of Pastaza won a historic rule and protected seven million acres of rainforest.

The Waorani people managed to protect their territory and stop the contemplated auctioning of 16 oil blocks covering over seven million acres of rainforest.

Executive Director of Amazon Frontlines, Mitch Anderson, said this is a big precedent for indigenous rights across the area. The court recognized the manipulative tactics of the Ecuadorian Government.

This is a big step forward, and these people protected their rights of the land. It was about time that someone said ‘no’ to destructive projects and halt climate changes.

The ruling was brought by a three-judge panel of the Pastaza Provincial Court.

A spokesperson for the Waorani of Pastaza, Oswando Nenquimo, said they protected their forest from oil drilling and their water from contamination. The children are now safe from sickness, but the war is far from over. The government will probably appeal because they still want the oil.

Waorani leader Nemonte Nenquimo talked to The New Yorker and said the court recognized that the government had violated their right to live free and make their decision about their territory. He believes they have the right to protect their surrounding.

This is a positive change, and hopefully, it will trigger even greater changes. We deserve to live a better life without the destructive power of major industries. Our planet deserves our attention and respect. The Waorani are fighting their battle, and we have to fight ours.

    Hello Angle#3,

    Charlie here. One tribe against another. I suspect one day they will lose out to so-called “progress”. Just ask the Indians or the Hawaiians in America.

    Many were TRICKED into giving up their lands. The white man literally stole it. But they did develop it. Something they are ALL enjoying now whether they would admit to it or not.

    Certainly, nobody I know wants to go back to their original lifestyle. Leaves and branches for toilet paper. Food that will make you vomit today. Grisly tribal warfare anyone?


    Charlie (the worst is NO doughnuts!) :cry: :cry:
