The Guardians of the Amazon, an inspiring group of Indigenous Guajajara people from Brazil, are fighting to stop illegal loggers from destroying their forest home and their uncontacted Awá relatives. Five of them have been killed. 

One of their leaders, Olimpio Guajajara, is in Europe as an urgent appeal for action. You can help the Guardians fight back against devastating deforestation and increasing violence. Take action now!
