Indigenous peoples across the Amazon are confronting a human rights emergency. In 2019 alone, 33 Earth defenders were murdered in the region. From Brazil to Peru, Indigenous Earth defenders’ lives are increasingly at risk.
Mining, agribusiness, fossil fuels, logging, and narcotrafficking remain large drivers of conflict. Companies and governments are failing to act to prevent the genocide of Indigenous people. The Amazon, Mother Earth, and our climate cannot stand to lose another single Indigenous life.
