Dear Friends,

In Africa, Asia and Latin America alike, forest peoples are speaking out against the continuing violations of their rights imposed by development and conservation plans that ignore their interests and deny them a voice. They go beyond resistance, insisting on their own ways of managing their lives, lands and forests.

Estimados amigos:

Tanto en África, como en Asia y en Latinoamérica los pueblos de los bosques están alzando su voz contra las continuas violaciones de sus derechos impuestas por planes de desarrollo y conservación que hacen caso omiso de sus intereses y les niegan su derecho a opinar. Estos pueblos van más allá de la resistencia, insistiendo en sus propias formas de manejar sus vidas, sus tierras y sus bosques.
