Climate Defenders on the frontline of human rights abuses – report
As fossil fuel companies keep driving the climate crisis, the scale of human rights violations by the same companies is increasing.
Climate activists, Indigenous communities and environmental defenders are facing threats, intimidation and increased repression as they protect Mother Earth from destruction.
The fossil fuel industry and its allies – corrupt politicians, governments and organised crime – are responsible for some of the most severe and disturbing violations of human rights, from murders to blocking the freedom of association and expression.
While Climate Defenders face these threats, they continue to stand up and fight for justice, with amazing resilience, strength and impact. Listen to the climate defenders stories and stand with them.
