How I GO Further
In June of 2011, I had the great opportunity to journey to the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon, where I met Donald Moncayo. Donald is a father and a son and a husband. He lost his own mother due to cancer and he, as well, suffers from respiratory problems. Donald knows that his own wife and daughter will, sooner or later, be victims of the contamination.
As we traveled from village to village with Donald, it was overwhelming to see how oil poisoned this land and it’s people. How oil and the dumping of wastewater have contaminated the rain and all the vegetation. How the rivers no longer flow crystal clear, but black and suffocated by toxins. How the flares of natural gas have been burning for forty years, polluting the air these people breathe.
This was a journey of the heart. When I saw, firsthand, the blatant disregard for human rights and the environment, I had no choice but to stand alongside Donald and the people of the Amazon in their fight for life, for the human right to uncontaminated water, clear water.
The Oil companies responsible for this disaster are being fought in the courts and, although they have lost their legal battle, their financial resources far outweigh that of the Ecuadorian people. Yet, as the case continues, it is clear that even financial strength has weaknesses when matched with the strength of mankind's will to survive.
We need to provide the people of the Amazon with clear water. And we need to do it now. I hope you will all join me!
