Demand Justice for the Amazon Indigenous leaders murdered by loggers

PeM_Demand_Justice


Four leaders of the Ashéninka people of the Peruvian Amazon were murdered by illegal loggers operating on their lands. Among them was Edwin Chota a prominent anti-logging campaigner who had fought for his peoples’ right to gain titles to their land and expel illegal loggers who raided their forests on the Brazilian border.
