Video: indigenous leaders take their message to London
Cándido Mezúa, leader of the Emberá people of Panama, speaks during the Guardians of the Forest press conference at the London Royal Society, United Kingdom
“We indigenous peoples see with great sadness and concern that billions of dollars are being invested in the bureaucracy of governments, in large corporations and agro-businesses that drive deforestation, in large NGOs and global corporations, which make the climate crisisa modus vivendi. But almost nothing is invested in what really works, we: indigenous peoples and our forests.”
This video was produced by Iván Jaripio, young filmmaker of the Emberá people of Panama.
