"We're here to write a new story ... in which our country is doing everything in its power to adjust not only to the climate crisis, but the systemic injustices at its roots," Indigenous'>Afro-Indigenous climate activist @vict_barrett said at Friday's climate strike in NYC.
An international group of indigenous leaders met in New York during the UN climate summit to call attention to the destruction of their land, confront climate change and ask for increased protections for the environment.
Human Rights Watch claims Indigenous groups in Indonesia are 'suffering significant harm' at the hands of palm oil companies
The Amazon was in danger long before the fire that’s ravaged the rainforest for three weeks. Indigenous communities in Brazil have been struggling with illegal mining, logging, and the loss of protected status for indigenous lands.
Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon has increased 67% since President Jair Bolsonaro came into power. These Indigenous women are taking a stand.
The Fires Are Raging and The Amazonia continues to burn.........This is a devastation to Brazil—to the indigenous people who live there and the-plant and animal species that make this the most important bio-diverse Forest!!! President Bolsonaro please...
“The Amazon region is burning!” The largest rainforest in the world, vital in the fight against global warming, home to one million indigenous people and millions of plants and animals This year it has seen “a record number of fires” (Inpe) THREAD⬇️
