COP25 press conference on Amazon Sacred Headwaters. 

Amazon Sacred Headwaters Press Conference at COP 25 2019 Madrid

At COP25 in Madrid, Stand and our Amazon Sacred Headwaters Initiative partners and leaders of indigenous federations released a new threat report on this critical region.

This was an official UN press conference (moderated by Tzeporah Berman - Stand's International Program Director) that was attended by a range of media organizations and others and presents the critical importance of protecting this region from massive oil expansion. This generated international visibility for policymakers and others in a new way and generated news stories in BBC World, the largest media outlets in Ecuador and over 50 other news outlets world-wide.

Watch, listen to the powerful messages of indigenous leaders, share, and sign the Declaration in Solidarity of protecting this region.
