Guillermo Grefa holds the long stick which he used to
poke through the ground to expose the oil saturated soil beneath the site in
Rumipamba in Eastern Ecuador. Guillermo is the son-in-law to Maria Aguinda,
the person the suit is named for. In the background gas is burnt from a
nearby oil field. They live very close to the polluted site. In the
background are family members of Maria. They are all part of the Kichwa
tribe. Picture taken Sunday, October 26, 2003.
