Luis Pinanjota and Juan Carlos Cadena, oil contractors died in the block 66 of the Ecuadorian Amazon, in Pastaza, during the attack of a waorani family. José Serrano, Minister of the Interior, said it.
The workers were lanceados after the apparently accidental death of a child waorani in Bataboro, within the neighbouring block. The father, to find out that his little one had died, reacted and attacked workers gang who performed works of drinking water in the area.
The official version states that the doctor would have informed the family that the child had died, and that, for that cause, a Waorani group reacted violently.
For vice president of the Waorani Nationality of Ecuador (Nawe), Alicia Cahuiya, what happened has caused pain among the Indians of the area.
The wao leader, who was in a meeting in Quito for the exploitation of the Yasuni ITT, was scheduled to fly to Block 66. “Right now it is too much trouble having to Waoranis, I am concerned what Government says agrees to remove the oil, then the government is not helping anything to Waorani people,” she lamented.
Serrano emphasized that it is not, as had been posted on social networks, a problem with towns in voluntary isolation.
