Alfonso Campo Martínez

Dear Mr Martínez,

Jani Silva has been standing alongside the campesino farmers in the Putumayo region for decades. She has dedicated her life to defending the environment and natural resources. However, Jani’s work has put her in danger. She has been followed, intimidated by unknown people with guns and threatened with death.

As protectors of resources that the world depends on for its survival, Jani and the campesino farmers she stands with should be defended.

I call on you to protect Jani and all members of ADISPA, an organisation she founded along with her colleagues to preserve the peasant Amazon Pearl Reserve Zone.

In doing so, you will be safeguarding not just them, but a whole ecosystem powering the planet.

Yours sincerely
