Oil Spill Solidarity Among Indigenous Peoples of the Americas: VIDEO

Al-Jazeera English files this report of an amazing act of solidarity and support shown by an Ecuadorian Indigenous delegation towards the Houma people in the state of Louisiana, hit hard by the recent BP Oil Spill.

As you’ll see in this AJE story, making the journey northward were representatives of the Assembly of Communities Affected by Chevron/Texaco, on a trip co-ordinated by the US-based group, Rainforest Action Network. As part of their mission, the Assembly (aka Asamblea de Afectados por Texaco) is presenting the Houma with their report, The Lasting Stain of Oil: Cautionary Tales and Lessons from the Amazon, which you too can freely download from RAN’s site.
