The Assembly members of PAIS met yesterday with the Vice President Jorge Glas and several state ministers to discuss the presidential order to the Assembly to declare the blocks 31 and 43 of the ITT of national interest, which are located in the Yasuni National Park, so the oil exploration can start.
Various issues, such as what is to be done if at the moment of the exploitation peoples in voluntary isolation in the area reappear? And although the Ministry of Justice has ruled out the presence of them in the area, the proposal is to authorize the exploitation, stating explicitly, that if they reappear it, as nomads or using traffic areas, the oil drilling will be immediately suspended.
It seeks to protect all that is possible (un-contacted peoples) says Assembly member Maria Carrion, who believes that setting this explanation in the document for the declaration of national interest, will give “peace” not only to the assembly, but to the Ecuadorian community.
Vice President Jorge Glas reiterated that if the groups that promote the referendum manage to collect the 600,000 signatures required to a call, it must be done, because it is a right.
