‘Humiliation and discrimination’: Environmental defenders facing ‘unprecedented attacks’

Daisy Dunne reports in „The Independent“ about people who try to treat the world with dignity…

“Human rights defenders are being killed as they seek to uphold their environmental, human and spiritual rights,” Luisa Fernanda Rodríguez Gaitán, an environmental defender and researcher at Colombia’s Centre for Research and Popular Education’s intercultural programme, told The Independent.

“For indigenous communities, there is a special connection between land, nature and human and spiritual rights. It can’t be divided.”

“I have been criminalised for nine years of my life. I have suffered from psychological abuse, low self-esteem, harassment, and unemployment. Alongside personal stress, there’s been the discrediting of my family.”
