He has been on hunger stroke for 8-days in a row to ask government officials for tangible solutions.
[TRANSLATION BELOW] 👇🏽
My name is Raúl Menoscal, I am secretary of the citizen council (Junta Ciudidana) in Canton Santa Cruz. The question is why the hunger strike. We are running out of alternatives, I believe.
After various talks with governmental council (Consejo de Gobierno), the mayors, we do not have any other alternative than request a public audience with Mr. President to see if in that way, the republic of Ecuador solves the problematic situation of the Galapagos Islands
I am a peaceful person (Junta Ciudadana) it is full of pacifists. The Galapaguenean people, they are a peaceful people.
What alternative do they leave us? We are not going to fall into the game of decoys and claims of vandalism in any way.
This is a message that Mayor Ángel Yánez and Norman Wray must have it very clear.
We are peaceful people, but they are not going to make fun of us, as you and all the authorities in the province have been doing.
Enough of that.
What are we going to do?
We want to solve this problem and we are going to solve it, now!
