Write a letter for the Ayoreo

In 2013 satellite images caught a subsidiary of Spanish construction company Grupo San José illegally clearing land inhabited by uncontacted Indians in Paraguay.
Contacted members of the Ayoreo tribe have been claiming title to land owned by the company for twenty years. For those Ayoreo who remain uncontacted, it’s a matter of life and death: they could be wiped out if forced contact is made, as uncontacted tribes lack immunity to diseases brought by outsiders. Many Ayoreo have died as a result of unwanted contact.
How you can help
Please take a few minutes to write to Grupo San José asking them to return the Ayoreo’s land.
