Update on deportation:

Julia Butterfly Hill departed Ecuador at dawn today, peacefully resisting
her deportation till the end.

As she was dragged through the Quito airport by immigration police, she
called out:

I'm being deported against my will. I was never told what Iım being
charged with. I was never once read my rights. I was shown a piece of paper
in Spanish but was refused a translator. I was refused a lawyer and the
only reason Iım being deported is because Iıve lent my solidarity to the
forests of Ecuador and the communities defending their lands and their basic
human rights.²

Earlier Julia asked:
³Why is it that transnational oil companies can come to Ecuador, invade
peopleıs lands, ravage ecosystems, and be welcomed by the Ecuadorian
government, and those who come to lend their solidarity to those impacted by
these projects are mistreated and deported?²

Julia is being deported to Panama. Ecuadorian authorities failed to arrange
for ongoing flight to USA.
