November 2019

"We, representatives of indigenous peoples, rural and Afro-descendent organisations and communities, defenders of human rights and the global environment, have gathered in Geneva with the support of our allies and partner organisations to exchange views, share experiences and put forward proposals for actions targeting the causes of the violence we and our communities suffer.


We have travelled to Geneva to make our voices heard by States and companies at the UN Forum on Business and Human Rights so that effective commitments and actions are agreed and implemented to bring to a halt what is, in practice, a war against us and our brothers and sisters defending their lands and the environment all over the world."
