Let’s defend the defenders of our common home! “The native Amazonian peoples have probably never been so threatened on their own lands as they are now.”-Pope Francis, Peru, January 2018. Here are two communities in Brazil under threat: The way of life of Machadinho d’Oeste’s  seringueiros (artisanal rubber tappers) is being destroyed by industrial logging. The Mura Indigenous people of Manaus were not consulted before a phosphate mining  company began operations on their lands.  Sign the Development & Peace-Caritas Canada Solidarity Letter today to support these two communities. Your signatures will allow us to call for their protection and respect of their rights.
