FPP and BothENDS call for action on the criminalisation of indigenous peoples

FPP and BothENDS have provided a submission the UN Special Rapportuer on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Vicky Tauli-Corpuz, as a contribution to her crucial thematic report on the criminalisation of indigenous peoples. The submission explores the underlying drivers of criminalisation, including denial of the land and resource rights of indigenous peoples, and calls on urgent action from governments, the United Nations and private actors to ensure that indigenous peoples are protected from criminal charges in the exercise of their rights.
