Across Latin America, people who seek to protect land, water and forests face an unprecedented increase in attacks and killings. It’s the most dangerous region in the world to defend environmental human rights.
The aim is to paralyze peaceful struggles of entire communities exercising their right to speak out about irresponsible logging, mining and dam projects that threaten the environment on which they depend.
It is vital that Canada puts in place effective safeguards to ensure the trade and investment our government promotes in Latin America does not lead to conflict and violence against earth defenders.
