From @RogerWaters on Instagram:
"It's a desperate situation but we, activists around the world, are very proud of the Ecuadorian people, fighting Chevron in the way that you are, and we will help you as much as we can, until the fight is won... Much love to all of you..."
(UPDATE): At the press conference the following day (Tuesday, November 20, 2018)...Roger Waters, líder de Pink Floyd visitó la zona de contaminación petrolera en Lago Agrio atribuida a Chevron y dijo: “he visto muchas evidencias sobre el desastre tóxico que ha dejado aquí, no necesito ir más allá a ver, porque yo he seguido este caso por muchos años”. pic.twitter.com/tBfZlHiOgE— ANA MARÍA CAÑIZARES (@anniecanizares) November 19, 2018

@SDonziger: Roger Waters in Ecuador with two Amazon leaders, Rafael Pandam (to Roger’s right) and Carlos Nihua. Roger’s necklace was given by Pandam on behalf of the Shuar people. It has a tiger’s tooth to symbolize strength. #RogerWatersVSChevron @rogerwaters @AmazonWatch
The crown worn by @rogerwaters in the photo was a gift from the Wuaorani people of Ecuador. Cesar Nihua explained it is given to young warriors who protect Indigenous territory from invasions by oil companies. #RogerWatersVSChevron @KarenHinton @SLAPPtaskforce
