Calling it a modern day Avatar, Zaitchik describes situation of indigenous Shuar who are resisting Pres. Correa’s decision to open their land, the Cordillera del Condor rainforest to copper and gold mining by China and Canada while international Left praises Correa as foe of Western imperialism, fooling even Vandana Shiva and John Perkins.

Listen to Zaitchik, read his article, see link below, then act.
