Via Nina Gualingua
On March 26th, María Taant dear friend, sister and defender of the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador, member of @mujeresamazonicas, was run over by a car and killed while returning home from an event organized by the Ombudsman’s Office. Since then, not a single investigation has been carried out to bring justice for Maria. Unfortunately, impunity is all too common when it comes to Indigenous women defenders in Ecuador and we’ve had enough!
We’re demanding that the Ecuadorian prosecutor’s office launch a transparent investigation monitored by the Ombudsman’s office! Justice for Maria Taant and protection for Indigenous women defenders!
