The Indigenous leader fighting climate change

29 Jun 2021  |  www.aljazeera.com
Nemonte Nenquimo, a 36-year-old Waorani leader from Ecuador, is fighting to protect the Amazon rainforest and her people's way of life from threats such as oil drilling and climate change. The Waorani territory, rich in biodiversity, faces encroachment from oil companies and infrastructure development. Nenquimo has led legal battles against oil drilling, winning a lawsuit in 2019 that suspended the auctioning of their land for oil extraction. Recognized internationally for her efforts, she emphasizes the importance of ancestral knowledge and the guidance of elder women in her community. Nenquimo's work includes founding the Ceibo Alliance and advocating for Indigenous rights and environmental conservation. Despite the challenges posed by modernization and the pandemic, the Waorani have maintained their traditions and knowledge, which Nenquimo is determined to preserve and pass on to future generations.

In Colombia, the Pandemic Provides Fertile Ground for Illegal Armed Groups

05 Aug 2020  |  Foreign Policy
The coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated the control of illegal armed groups in Colombia, particularly in remote regions like Chocó and Cauca. Groups such as the National Liberation Army and the Organization of Mexico have used the pandemic to impose curfews and expand their influence, often through violent means. The government's absence in these areas has left communities vulnerable, with many residents fearing retaliation if they report incidents. The pandemic has also hindered efforts to mediate with armed groups, further isolating communities from essential services. Human rights activists and local leaders report increased violence and child recruitment, highlighting the ongoing challenges in achieving peace and stability in Colombia.

Ecuador has experienced its worst earthquake in decades, with the death toll rising to at least 413.

Snowden case pits Ecuador against Washington, again

24 Jun 2013  |  www.france24.com
Ecuador is deliberating over granting political asylum to Edward Snowden, who faces espionage charges in the US. Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino is in talks with Russia, where Snowden currently is. The decision is expected to be in Snowden's favor, potentially exacerbating already tense US-Ecuador relations, which have been strained since President Rafael Correa's election in 2007. Correa's administration has previously challenged US influence, notably by ending a US army base contract and expelling a US ambassador following Wikileaks revelations. The situation is further complicated by Julian Assange's asylum in Ecuador's London embassy. The Snowden case is seen as politically charged, with Ecuador asserting its sovereignty and potentially aligning with a leftist bloc formerly led by Hugo Chavez.
