The Embassy of the Republic of Ecuador in Cuba called the members of Cuban Chapter of the Network of Intellectuals and Artists " In Defense of Humanity " , to participate this October 9 in a Twitter debate in solidarity with the Ecuadorian people , which will run for two hours , between 14h30 and 16h30.
From the Ecuadorian embassy in Havana, and through the Social Network Twitter will expressed the support for the international campaign " The dirty Chevron Hand " (# LaManoSuciaDeChevron ) presented by the government of Rafael Correa.
Ecuador , with dignity and transparency , began this crusade against the U.S. oil company , which refuses to accept the verdict of local justice that sentenced to pay compensation of 19 billion of dollars to more than 30 000 people of the Amazon .
Chevron, however, refuses to comply with the judgment, and instead, launched a smear campaign against the Ecuadorian courts that led to President of Ecuador to take action on the matter, and initiate a counteroffensive in defense of our country communities, whose effects are devastating not only for the environment, but to the lives of the inhabitants of the Ecuadorian territory in this sector.
As Latin Americans, we cannot rest in the complaint to environmental pollution that left the U.S. transnational company in our Amazon.
This Tweet, states the call should become a cry for dignity, and will serve as a tribute to the memory of Commander Ernesto Che Guevara, vilely killed in Bolivian lands on October 9, 1967.
