Demand Justice for the Murder of Paulo Paulino Guajajara!

On November 1st, forest defender Paulo Paulino Guajajara was brutally murdered – shot in the head by illegal loggers. The attack also wounded Laércio Guajajara, leader of the Forest Guardians, a volunteer land and environmental monitoring force.

Responding to global outcry, Brazil's Justice Minister Sergio Moro declared, "We will spare no effort to bring those responsible for this grave crime to justice." Yet the policies and rhetoric of the Bolsonaro regime are what have gravely exacerbated today's crisis of violence and terror in the first place.

Demand that Minister Moro take real action now to hold accountable those responsible for this brutal attack! Only swift action will prevent more violent crimes.

3 people have taken this action so far.

We write to insist that you honor your commitment to "spare no effort to bring those responsible for this grave crime to justice." The murder of Paolo Paulino Guajajara and attack against Laércio Guajajara must not go unpunished or violence against Indigenous earth defenders will only increase. We demand justice for Indigenous peoples and respect for their constitutional rights to territory and security.
