It's impossible to remain indifferent in face of the news published everyday about the Amazon.
Even though it is now scientifically accepted that indigenous peoples are the most efficient forest guardians, the persistent and increasingly violent attacks suffered by these communities endanger their lives, cultures, traditions, languages and spiritualities, all of which are inseparable from the preservation of their ancestral lands. Indigenous efforts to defend the forest benefit Humanity as a whole. But what is at stake first and foremost is fighting for the Human Rights of the peoples who live in the Amazon.
That's why we are incredibly honoured to have Adriano Karipuna as our latest guest. Adriano is an indigenous leader of the Karipuna people and he recently traveled across Europe, alerting governments and organizations to the current situation of the Amazon's indigenous peoples.
