A Dangerous Occupation

Almost 200 people were killed last year for defending societal goods: land, wildlife, and natural resources. Killed for attempting to protect and secure a better collective future.

From the Guardian:
Almost Four Environmental Defenders a Week Killed in 2017

“The slaughter of people defending their land or environment continued unabated in 2017, with new research showing almost four people a week were killed worldwide in struggles against mines, plantations, poachers and infrastructure projects.

“Global Witness believe many more murders go unreported. Defenders are also being beaten, criminalised, threatened or harassed.”
