Two urgent cases of environmental defenders at risk

Please help us put a stop to intimidation and attacks against environmentalists in Mexico and Nigeria.

Recently, Amnesty International has learned of two new cases where environmental defenders have been threatened and harmed - one shot dead - in retribution for their efforts to protect their communities from environmental damage tied to natural resource industries. It will take only a few minutes of your time to send online appeals to demand investigations and greater protection for these activists.

In Nigeria: On May 19th, armed men attacked the wife and children of Bari-ara Kpalap, a staff member of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP). MOSOP is a community organization that campaigns to ensure that oil companies and the Nigerian government address environmental pollution linked to oil exploitation. Amnesty believes that Bari-ara Kpalap's life and the lives of his family may be at risk.

In Mexico: On May 15th, environmentalists fighting against illegal logging were attacked, allegedly by a group of illegal loggers, in Santa Lucia, Mexico State. Aldo Zamora was shot dead, and his brother Misael was seriously wounded. Their father, Ildefonso Zamora, who has been filing complaints about illegal logging in the area for many years, and organizing demonstrations against it, is now in grave danger, as are his colleagues.

Take a stand today to help protect these activists who put their lives on the line to defend their land and communities.
