After the fire disaster last year, we continue to fight against the illegal invasion of land squatters. Now, together with 30 other organisations, we have written an urgent reminder.
The letter was addressed to the President, the Minister of Environment and other politicians in Paraguay. The background is the threat to the forest areas destroyed in the 2020 forest fires. In the letter we ask the government to take immediate action to prevent the conversion of the destroyed land into agricultural land. We demand that the hundreds of land squatters illegally camping on the land be evicted.
A summary of the events can be read in German in "Die Zeitung" (page 5):
Thanks to your support, we can continue to fight for the preservation of the rainforest!
