Shipibo community in the Peruvian Amazon call on UN to safeguard their forests from government sanctioned landgrab

Indigenous and human rights organisations in the Peruvian Amazon have filed a formal petition to the UN to appeal for urgent action to prevent the land grab and destruction of their lands. The action comes in response to the decision by the Regional Government of Ucayali to remove protections for 3.5 million hectares of Amazon rainforest and allow for the invasion of indigenous lands.

Enfin une victoire pour Long Isun

Après une décennie de luttes contre la menace de la destruction des forêts, la communauté autochtone de Long Isun a remporté une petite victoire.
