Demand Justice for the Amazon Indigenous leaders murdered by loggers


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.
