All Eyes on the Amazon

It was announced in Amsterdam this week that WITNESS will join indigenous groups and ten other organisations to combat deforestation in the Amazon.

WITNESS’ role in the campaign will in be training indigenous and local communities to document violations of land rights and deforestation with video to be potentially used as evidence.

WITNESS will also support the creation of a database whereby communities can share videos with one another and via social media to inform activists, advocates, and concerned citizens worldwide of destructive activities in the Amazon rainforest.
