Pledge to join us on Monday, April 22nd –  Earth Day – in a coordinated Twitter and Facebook event to tell the government of Ecuador that the Amazon is NOT for sale. All you have to do is tweet a sentence to President Correa of Ecuador (@Presidencia_Ec) who wants to auction off nearly ten million acres of indigenous land in the Ecuadorian Amazon to oil companies. End your tweet with the hashtag #AmazonNot4Sale.
