Support independent journalism! The Green Economy and its impacts on peoples and territories

pea_periodismo-cuadrada

In recent decades, many communities have been displaced from their ancestral lands to make way for “Green Economy” mega-projects, or in the name of “nature conservation.” In Latin America there has been an increase in the murder rate of environmental activists—mostly indigenous—who have been fighting to stop mega-projects that would destroy their communities and territories. A new platform to report on the relationship between the Green Economy and violations of people’s rights is seeking support to research and document cases in Central America and Mexico. You can see the full petition and watch videos in Spanish, English and Portuguese at:
