In case you missed it, last week was the #OurLandOurNature alternative congress, which finished on Friday with a #protest in Marseille, France, where we were joined by a number of other orgs including @xrFrance, @amisdelaterre & @yfcmarseille.

Despite the torrential rain ⛈️ the turn out was big, showing how strong the resistance is towards the false solutions to tackle #ClimateChange being proposed at the #IUCNcongress.

The plan to turn 30% of the world into Protected Areas by 2030 (30x30) is a distraction from the real causes of #environmental destruction - instead it puts a price on #nature & allows big business to profit.

It's no coincidence that conservation NGOs are in bed with the biggest polluters on the planet: @NutellaGlobal, @JCDecauxGlobal & @LOrealGroupe even sponsor the #IUCNcongress! 🧐

We can't trust those destroying nature to protect it... Along with other orgs, we're showing that different solutions exist & already work - ones that are anti-racist, anti-colonial & respect #diversity.

#Indigenous Peoples must be at the ♥️ of the #climate movement & we must center their voices in the fight against climate change & #biodiversity loss.

#OnThisDay in 1906, #OtaBenga was put on display with the monkeys at the @BronxZoo. The zoo is owned by @TheWCS. Ota Benga committed suicide 10 years later.

The WCS President Cristian Samper has apologized for the treatment of Ota Benga & the extreme #racism of the organization's founders – only 115 years too late. He challenged the WCS to “do better” and to “never look away whenever and wherever injustice occurs.”

But they’ve already failed at this challenge; it seems the WCS hasn't changed very much at all.

@TheWCS is supporting illegal evictions in #India’s tiger reserves.

For months, we’ve been reporting alongside Yanomami and Ye’kwana organizations that the invasion of Yanomami lands is getting dramatically worse. #indigenous #humanrights #news

There are 20,000 illegal miners within the Yanomami’s territory in the #Amazon, who are poisoning rivers with mercury and attacking #indigenous people - as the terrible images of the past few days demonstrate:

Bolsonaro's government should be ashamed that Brazil's largest #indigenous territory has been invaded for years. Unfortunately, the opposite is true: #Bolsonaro and his allies encourage #illegal gold miners, perpetuating this tragic scenario.

⚠️#Uncontacted tribe in danger ⚠️

On the Brazil-Peru border, a group of indig ppl have approached a Manchineri village, in the Mamoadate Indig Territory in BR. The Manchineri say the group are members of the uncontacted Mashco Piro tribe.

🏹 Take action:…
As in many such cases, it could be that the #uncontacted Indians are fleeing the pressure of invaders on their land.

"Something must be happening for them to get so close to the 🇧🇷Brazilian side, because in Peru, when [invaders] come across uncontacted Indians, they shoot"

☝️ José Carlos Meirelles, a government agent who specializes in protecting the lands of #UncontactedTribes.
