Our friend @rogerwaters is in the Ecuadorian Amazon right now, visiting the communities affected by Chevron-Texaco’s oil dumping.
He says: “So happy to be in beautiful Ecuador, spent yesterday visiting the wonderfully hospitable indigenous people. I am deeply moved by their predicament in the face of Chevron corporations’ deadly pollution of their rainforest home.”

Amid political turmoil in the Peruvian capital of Lima, the country's indigenous movement continues to fight for indigenous rights.

One of the communities working to protect territorial rights and defend the rainforest is that of Santa Rosa de Huacaria, from where this Huachiperi child hails.

Protection of indigenous territorial rights is one of the most effective tools against deforestation, greenhouse gas emissions, and climate change.

Today our hearts and minds are non #Brazil. On Sunday a candidate of the extreme right-wing was elected president. Jair Bolsonaro has vowed to slash environmental protections and indigenous rights protections.
But Brazil’s human rights and environmental community isn’t backing down, and neither will we. We’re redoubling our efforts in support of the communities and organizations that will be twisting his destructive agenda. ✊🏽 Photo: APIB

This #worldindigenousday, we’re honoring the indigenous #EarthDefenders who, despite threats and attacks, continue to defend their rights and nature. Along with @amnistiaamericas, @fundacion_pachamama, CEDHU and Acción Ecológica we launched an initiative calling on Ecuador’s president to take concrete action to keep them safe. Go to amazonwatch.org/escazu to take action!

We have great news! Amazon Watch is the newest organization to be selected for CREDO Mobile support. We have a chance to raise over $100,000 for our work to defend the Amazon, our global climate, and the rights of indigenous peoples!

To do so, we need ALL our friends and allies to VOTE online and SHARE the ballot in July. How much money CREDO allocates to our work depends upon how many votes we get this month. Link in image and bio.
