Huaorani Demand Moratorium on Oil Exploration

The Brazilian oil company, Petrobras, is moving forward with its plan to drill for oil in Yasuni National Park and the overlapping Huaorani people's territory in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

Hourani Children

The Huaorani are demanding a 10-year moratorium on oil related activities in their territory and the Yasuni National Park. They are calling on Petrobras to immediately withdraw from an area the oil company calls “Block 31” where road construction already underway is carving up their pristine ancestral homelands.

Saskatchewan: The Province of Weyerhaeuser

Last week, RAN released “Saskatchewan: The Province of Weyerhaeuser,” a case study containing government documents that confirm Weyerhaeuser’s illegal logging in Canada’s Boreal forests. The Weyerhaeuser mills in question make plywood and copy paper for US companies like Xerox. Our grassroots video documentary includes first-hand testimony by Saskatchewan residents and former Weyerhaeuser loggers who tell the real story of the logging giant’s disregard of community concerns and destruction of public forests.

Click here to Tell Weyerhaeuser and Xerox to adopt a strong global policy that protects endangered forests and respects human rights.

Sakhalin II: A high-risk Shell game

On July 15th, Royal Dutch/Shell announced that its Sakhalin-2 oil project, the largest integrated oil and gas project in history, would double in cost to a staggering $20 billion and be delayed for at least 8 more months.

The announcement follows grassroots market pressure calling on Credit Suisse to sever its relationship as financial advisor to Sakhalin II. RAN and a global coalition placed a full-page ad in The Financial Times to coincide with renewed demonstrations at Credit Suisse headquarters in New York, Moscow, and Zurich, including indigenous blockades on Sakhalin Island. CEO Brady Dougan also received over 3,000 letters from children around the world following a day-long kid's art exhibit facing their New York City headquarters.
