Ending Impunity and the Climate Emergency: Indigenous Autonomy and Defending Territories of Life in the Amazon – Part 2

McLeod Hall, the Pearce Institute, 840-860 Govan Road, Glasgow, G51 3UU

How are Amazonian Indigenous Peoples organising to confront threats to their collective rights and the dispossession of their territories for logging, agribusiness, illegal mining, oil and gas extraction and narcotics production? What are their proposals for strengthening the self-government of their territories, protecting the climate and ensuring the good life for all the peoples of the Amazon?

Join this session with Indigenous leaders from the Shipibo-Konibo, Wampis and Wapichan nations and peoples to explore their struggles in defence of their territories and forests and to build Indigenous autonomous territorial governments.

Hosted by the Forest Peoples Programme (FPP) with the South Rupununi District Council (SRDC), Guyana, the Autonomous Territorial Government of the Wampis Nation (GTANW), Peru and, the Interethnic Association for the Development of the Peruvian Rainforest (AIDESEP), Peru.
