JOIN THE CALL FOR A MORATORIUM ON THE INVASION AND DESTRUCTION OF AMAZONIAN INDIGENOUS LANDS!

The COVID-19 pandemic has created an additional crisis for indigenous and traditional peoples across the Amazon Basin. In response, they have called for an immediate moratorium on any activity that includes the entering of foreign persons into indigenous territories, the development of mining activities, logging, oil exploration and extraction, industrial agriculture, religious proselytization, or increased militarization.

Demand that Amazonian governments and corporations doing business there follow through with concrete action and immediately cease all destructive and extractive activities on indigenous lands!
