Stand with Indigenous Peoples of Brazil, the Amazon and the Climate

The Amazon Rainforest and Brazil’s Indigenous peoples are under increasing attack with President Jair Bolsonaro and his regime’s devastating assaults on social and environmental protections. WECAN International organized for Sônia Bone Guajajara, former vice-presidential candidate of Brazil and National Coordinator of Brazil’s Indigenous People Articulation (APIB), to travel to New York to denounce Bolsonaro’s attacks, and to speak out for the rights of Indigenous Peoples, the climate, and the protection of the forest. Sonia was a delegate of the WECAN International Indigenous Women’s Delegation to the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues 18th Session, where she spoke at a high-level event at the United Nations, had a face-to-face meeting with the UN Ambassador to Brazil and delivered a vital petition from Indigenous peoples of Brazil with a list of their demands.
