Co-hosted by EarthRights International and Oxfam, this webinar brings together Congressional leaders and Parliamentarians from Canada, the US, and Peru to discuss actions that the international community can and should take to protect Indigenous rights, the Amazon, and the climate, specific to Peru and other countries in the region. Panelists will also share perspectives on the upcoming COP climate negotiations in Glasgow and how these issues should be taken up in that venue.
This event is the second webinar in a series that will spotlight the struggles of Indigenous peoples across the Americas who are reshaping the geographies of fossil fuel extraction amid the worsening climate crisis. In the first webinar, Indigenous leaders from Line 3 to Block 192 testified to how their communities are doing everything in their power to protect their rights, their territories, their cultures, and our collective futures.
