Defending the jungles, mountains, forests and rivers of Latin America has never been this dangerous. Six of the ten most hostile countries for leaders and communities defending the environment and their ancestral lands are located in Latin America, according to UN Special Rapporteur Michel Forst’s 2016 report to United Nations. This is why 50 journalists, developers and photo/videographers from ten countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela) teamed up to document to report on episodes of violence against environmental leaders and their communities. The result is this special investigative project with a database compiling 2,367 attacks spanning eleven years (2009-2019) and 29 in-depth stories on individual cases.
