Everyday around the globe, men, women and youth speak out in defence of the land and environment and in favour of clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. But in many parts of the world they are killed and imprisoned because their activism challenges the politicians and companies that want to control the use of their lands and resources. Panel members will describe current campaigns and how we can all raise our voice to support defenders of the earth.
This Peacetalk will be moderated by Peter Wood. You can find the event page here.
