TEXACO ¡ NUNCA MÁS !
                                                                                                          27

EL 5 DE JUNIO SE PRESENTARA UNA PROPUESTA DE MORATORIA

       Varias organizaciones proponen al Gobierno Nacional suscribir una CARTA DE INTENCION con la sociedad para que se  declare
                                  una moratoria a la expansión de la frontera petrolera y a la minería metálica de cielo abierto.  
                                                        Estas actividades provocan destrucción de ecosistemas y afectan
                                                                            las bases de subsistencia de los pueblos.



 

                                                                                          NUNCA MAS  TEXACOS EN EL ECUADOR

La reunión se realizará en el Paraninfo de la Universidad Andina, el 5 de junio, día del medio ambiente, a las 11 de la mañana

ON THE OCCASION OF ENVIRONMENT DAY


ECUADORIAN CIVIL SOCIETY SEEKS AGREEMENT WITH GOVERNMENT TO INSTITUTE A MORATORIUM   ON PETROLEUM EXPLORATION AND OPEN PIT MINING

As their contribution to the upcoming Environment Day
celebrations this June 5, various national organizations
will publicly present a proposal in which they ask the
Government to declare on Moratorium on expansion of the
"petroleum frontier" and open air mining for metallic
ores.

The organizations are inviting the Government to
subscribe to a Letter of Intent with Society:

"For a period of time not less than three years and
determined by a special commission, Ecuador will abstain
within its national territory from conducting new
petroleum explorations or authorizing mining projects
for metallic ores employing open-air mining technology
and will promote sustainable activities in their stead.
It does this as a part of the national and international
effort to conserve agricultural and wild or natural?
biodiversity and the global climate; during this period,
the results of the moratorium will be studied as well as
the feasibility of continuing it in the future"

At the end of three years it is hoped that this decision
will become official State policy.   The petition
declares, "With a strategy such as this, tropical
forests and agricultural zones will be preserved without
affecting the incomes of the country."

In the present situation, both oil exploration and
open-air mining are projected to expand operations.
These activities would affect extensive areas of primary
forest and productive agricultural lands, contaminate
hydrologic basins, and violate in an irreparable manner
the human, economic, social, cultural, and environmental
rights of communities and individuals.

 For example, it is reported that Texaco (today
Chevron-Texaco) has caused damages in excess of 51 times
the external debt.  The impact of the petroleum sector
is tremendous:  it is calculated that for each oil well
brought on-line, one to three hectares are deforested;
for each barrel of oil produced, a barrel of wastes
pours into the rivers; and for each barrel consumed .112
tons of carbon are released.

The situation in the mining sector is not different.  It
is enough to consider the mines of Peru and Chile.
There are craters so big that they can be seen from the
moon.  A single gold ring weighing 6 grams causes the
removal of 6 tons of rock.

New bidding rounds and contracts won't help to give a
solution to the asphyxiating weight of the external debt
as has been asserted to justify these activities.  Such
concessions will not generate income for the country for
at least 5 years.  But in the meantime there definitely
will be environmental damage, social conflict, and other
immediate impacts.

Alternative proposals, developed by experts, propose
increasing oil production by using better methods of
recovery in the oil fields currently in use by
Petroecudor. This would actually give immediate incomes.

By conserving the Ecuadorian Amazon, agriculture lands
in mountainous regions, and other threatened and fragile
ecosystems, Ecuador will gain international recognition
and prestige as well as financial resources -- above all
from reductions in payments for external debt and
payments of the ecological debt such as the one owned by
Chevron-Texaco to the country.

A moratorium is a legal institution commonly used within
the framework of national and international law.  There
are precedents from other areas.  For example, Costa
Rica has declared it self free of oil and mining.  In
the United States, there are moratoriums in Montana,
Alaska, and California.  In other areas, the citizenry
has declared its territories to be free of these
activities as is the case in Tambo Grande, in Peru,
where a voter initiative eliminated mining activity by a
vote of 98%.  Within Ecuador, Cotacachi is likewise an
example of an area that has promoted ecological balance.

RED ALERTA PETROLERA-ORINOCO OILWATCH. (VENEUELA)

 e-mail:  amigransa_oilwatch@yahoo.com

 


En el mes de agosto de 1996, la organización ambientalista AMIGRANSA- Sociedad de Amigos en defensa de la Gran Sabana, promueve  la creación  en Venezuela de la RED ALERTA PETROLERA (Orinoco-Oilwatch), filial venezolana de OILWATCH, organización internacional de resistencia a la actividad petrolera en los trópicos y vigilancia de los impactos ambientales y sociales de dicha actividad, nacida en Quito, Ecuador, donde se encuentra la Secretaria Internacional de Oilwatch. En la RED ALERTA PETROLERA, hemos considerado prioritario por su urgencia y su gravedad, solicitar una MORATORIA a la actividad petrolera en áreas de alta fragilidad ambiental y social; realizar el estudio de la problemática de la zona Delta del Orinoco/ Golfo de Paria en el extremo oriente del país, en la desembocadura del Río Orinoco, hábitat de la étnia indígena Warao; las secuelas de la explotación de petróleo, carbón y gas en el Edo. Zulia, el resultado de las 'asociaciones estratégicas' en la faja petrolífera del Orinoco y la deuda ecológica. Sus voceros forman parte de grupos ecologistas, de pueblos indigenas, instituciones académicas y de investigación, grupos defensores de los derechos humanos, grupos de pescadores y de otras poblaciones locales afectadas por los impactos de mega-proyectos petroleros, gasiferos y  petroquímicos.
