INDIGENOUS GUARDIANS FIGHT AGAINST AMAZONIA DESTRUCTION
By: Zona Sur
The youth for climate and guardians of the Amazon have partnered in a global petition calling on Europe to act immediately to protect our future. This petition also supports the complaint lodged by Cacic Raoni, with the help of many indigenous leaders, before the International Criminal Court (ICC) accusing Bolsonaro of crimes against humanity.
In this plain, Bolsonaro has been accused since the beginning of his mandate of practicing a criminal policy. Between dismantling environmental government agencies, violations of many fundamental rights protected by the Constitution, assassinations of indigenous people and, finally, managing the catastrophic health crisis, the Brazilian president will face many counts.
Amazon planet has been fighting against vile acts against indigenous peoples of Amazon and the destruction of the environment for years. Our association is co-signatory of the petition with more than 80 associations including: FEPHAC (Federation of the Huni Kui People of the State of Acre), Youth For Climate, Question Gold, Notre Affaire a Tous, Maiouri Nature, Mr Globalisation, ICRA INTERNATIONAL, Permavenir, European Coordination Via Campesina, Attac France, Envol Vert, Latin America Solidarity Centre, Friends of the Earth Finland... and many more.
