I think this situation is of importance to all of 
us.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. I too 
apologize for the multiple postings.

>support the Maquipucuna Reserve's legitimate 
>rights to its land and protest the Ministry of 
>the Environment's allowance of INDA to illegally 
>sign away 1/3 of the reserve's protected lands. 
>It is basically the same letter i sent out

>you just click where it says, fill out your name 
>and click again and you're done.  when you click 
>it is sent automatically to the Maquipucuna 
>Foundation's server and the two Ministries in 
>Ecuador.  the copies sent to Maquipucuna will be 
>made into hardcopies, which will also be sent to 
>the Ministries because by law they have to 
>respond to written requests and cannot ignore 
>them like e-mails.
>This is public awareness campaign which is 
>allied to the legal battle currently occupying 
>all of the Foundation's time and a lot of its 
>finances.  What the government is doing is not 
>legal and should not be allowed for this reserve

>you know personally who might be interested.
