Read powerful testimonies reflecting the experience and resistance of activists and communities from across the African continent.
We call on you to
A loose alliance of African organisations, collectives, activists and community groups have come together under the banner Rise Against Repression. Through this call to action, we remember, make visible, and honour the environmental and land rights activists AND communities, with a focus on women, who have died or faced repression because they say NO to the large-scale extraction of natural resources. This International Human Rights Day (December 10, 2020), a living #RiseAgainstRepression Tribute Wall goes live! This is an online repository that shines a light on repression against land and environmental defenders in Africa.
Our call does not end here
Looking ahead, this Pan African platform will continue to monitor, document, and profile testimonies; build solidarity, visibility and support for defenders and communities at risk with an explicit focus to women; and shine a light against repression.
