Shiwakucha Community June 24, 2011
Sirs.

MEMBERS OF THE INTER-AMERICAN COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE
ORGANIZATION OF AMERICAN STATES

San Jose Costa de Costa Rica

From our considerations:

The communities and peoples of the Kichwa Nationality of Pastaza have been closely monitoring
concern and expectation regarding the "Sarayaku Case" due to the conflict created between the Ecuadorian State and the
Ancestral Kichwa People of Sarayaku, from the unconsulted concession of 200,000 hectares of territory
in Block No. 23 handed over to the Argentine oil company CGC, whose arbitrary interference
and actions that violate human and collective rights provoked the demand of the people of Sarayaku to
Ecuadorian State before the IACHR for the violation of human, social, environmental, economic and
cultural events, which has been aired in said commission since 2003. Given this situation, we express our
absolute support for the struggle of our brothers from the Sarayaku People for the defense of their territories,
natural resources and human rights of its inhabitants, as well as the claim process that
is currently in the final phase of the trial within the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights
OAS Humans.


The group of communities and people of the Kichwa nationality of Pastzza, we consider that it is
It is essential to create precedents of justice in the face of this type of conflict, so that acts of this nature are not
continue to be committed by any government and oil companies in any part of the continent against the peoples
natives.
As evidence of our unconditional support for this fight and legal claim, we hereby sign the
representatives of the associations and communities of the Kichwa nationality of Pastaza.
