Last month, Colombian Indigenous leader Pedro Josse Velasco Tumiña traveled to Ireland to challenge the paper giant decimating his ancestral lands. Now he’s in grave danger.
Over 78 human rights defenders have been killed in Pedro’s region of Colombia in just two years – many murdered by paramilitary troops allegedly working for land-grabbing corporations. To speak out is to put your life at risk.
Pedro is about to launch a huge advocacy push, to demand action to protect the Misak people’s rainforest home. But now that his name and face are known he urgently needs protection.
Can you chip in the cost of a coffee so that we can provide Pedro with security and keep him safe as he fights for the rainforest? Anything extra we raise will help fund campaigns to keep indigenous activists safe everywhere.
