Listen to Bill explain in his own words the work of The Pachamama Alliance and its most recent efforts to support the climate change and representative democracy movements in this 2014 Whole Earth Summit interview recording.
In late 2013, Bill Twist, along with Jaime Vargas, President of the Achuar Federation in Ecuador, and Belén Paéz, Executive Director of The Pachamama Alliance’s illegally dissolved sister organization, Fundación Pachamama, in Ecuador, were interviewed by Xochitl Bernadette Moreno of Radio Ollin.
The three of them discuss The Pachamama Alliance’s work with its indigenous partners to protect the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador, the implications oil development could have on Ecuadorian society, and what needs to happen if the global community wants to protect the Amazon from the threat of oil development in the future. Listen below.
