On August 2, indigenous people from the Amazon region will begin their trek from Tundayme, in Zamora Chinchipe, to Quito, as part of the national strike and to claim against mining operations, but they will also bring their proposal by legal means.
The Commonwealth of Autonomous Provincial Governments of the Ecuadorian Amazon will file a lawsuit for “hatred and segregation” against the president Rafael Correa. They argue that 34 parochial governments in the region report that they have not received the transfer of resources that belong to them for oil exploitation in the area, even though Act 010 determines so.
Antonio Kube, president of the Commonwealth and prefect of Pastaza, says that the amount to be allocated to the 167 parish boards of the Amazon is about $ 12 million. Approximately three million should have be granted to the 34 parishes. He claimed to put into effect the equally delivery of resources.
