Anti-fracking mobilization suppressed and indigenous houses burnt due to resistance over Chevron-YPF agreement
The agreement  between Chevron and YPF needed Neuquén's parliament ratification due to federal sovereignty over natural resources. Since civil society's participation was not allowed at any stage, a pacific mobilization –organized by unions, mapuche Confederation, political parties and the Neuquén's Platform Against Fracking, among others- was conducted to raise the voice against this agreement. The main issues expressed where fracking's environmental and sanitary consequences, sovereignty violation and the possibility to export a strategic resource.

The fate of the Yasuni-ITT initiative supported by 90 per cent of the Ecuadorian population now rests with the National Assembly and what it decides to do or not to do.
The Assembly has already made one decision by omission when it failed to denounce the environmental license granted to PetroAmazonas for Block 31 – even though the license legally requires the Assembly's authorization. This omission allowed the so-called Yasuni Plan B to advance.
Pursuant to Article 407, and in consideration of the fact that that it has already pronounced on two occasions against the exploitation of oil in ITT (14 March 2008 and 8 December 2009), the National Assembly should now act to protect nature and peoples in voluntary isolation, and if there is any doubt what lies in the national interest, should conduct a referendum on the issue.

To: Members of the European Parliament
Dear Member of the European Parliament
What MEPs should be debating instead of backloading
As you prepare to vote again on the proposal to backload 900 million permits from the EU ETS, 42 organisations, movements and networks are sending the message that this debate is a distraction from the real policies that are currently determining our energy, and thus, climate policy in the EU.
