Oil Injustice examines the mobilization efforts of communities and environmental organizations in response to the construction of a cross-country oil pipeline in Ecuador. Local mobilization efforts gave rise to the establishment of two transnational campaigns, one of opposition and one of negotiation, which emphasized calls for greater conservation while diluting local demands for environmental justice and community participation in national and global decisions. These Ecuadorian cases suggest that the majority of community activists and NGOs alongside their transnational advocates were forced to seek local change rather than attempt to defeat a global, unequal and disabling system.Beyond Borders: Thinking Critically about Global Issues.
