Great article by journalist Dan Collyns for @mongabay profiling founding members from our partner organization Alianza Ceibo and Amazon Frontlines, and telling the story of how indigenous Amazonian communities are organizing to build justice in the face of nearly half a century of irresponsible oil exploitation on their ancestral territories, with solutions for clean water and solar energy alternatives.
.
"The company came to destroy our jungle, to pollute our rivers and environment [...] So we’ve organized the Ceibo Alliance of we four indigenous nations. We’re not waiting for the company to come and compensate us. From 1973 to now is already quite a few years to wait for them to solve the problem.”

Indigenous resistance and unity on the frontlines is powerful! This year, the small indigenous Kofan community of Sinangoe in Ecuador's Amazon secured a historic victory: they won a landmark legal battle to protect one of Ecuador’s largest and most important rivers, and nullify 52 mining concessions that had been granted by the government in violation of the Kofan’s right to consent. That means over 32,000 acres of pristine rainforest protected!

In 2019, Sinangoe will be working hard to enforce the sentence, map and defend their ancestral lands, and secure their land title – and they’re going to need your help along the way!

Protecting the Amazon is much more than saving trees and fighting off extractive industries. If the forest is still standing today, it's largely thanks to indigenous peoples' vast encyclopedic knowledge of the forest, transmitted from generation to generation across millennia. Today, pressures from colonization and industrialization are pushing Amazonian cultures and knowledge to the brink of disappearance. But elders and youth from communities in the Western Amazon are fighting back, and working to recover, document and preserve their traditional knowledge, such as ancient medicinal plant knowledge. ⠀

Indigenous action on the frontlines is powerful. In November of this year, the Waorani people halted oil drilling in one of the last remaining oil-free, roadless areas of their territory in the Ecuadorian Amazon. In 2019, they'll be pushing even harder to ensure their territory remains free from natural resource extraction, and filing a lawsuit against the government to denounce the violation of their right to free, prior and informed consent. ⠀

The Amazon has never been under greater threat, and neither has our climate. But away from the alarming headlines, indigenous peoples are taking action on the frontlines together with two of my favorite organizations: @amazonfrontlines and #AlianzaCeibo. From halting oil auctions to blocking gold rushes and building clean water solutions and solar energy alternatives, their movement is working, and it’s growing. 
This work is urgent and important, and I’m proud to announce that through the @leonardodicapriofdn we’ll be matching all monthly donations made to @AmazonFrontlines and #AlianzaCeibo - up to $50,000 per month throughout 2019.

"Our ancestors taught us to fight with truth and respect. If we ask ourselves why Kofan territories or indigenous territories have been kept intact until today, and why they contain more land and biodiversity than anywhere else, it is because our ancestors cared for and defended our territories. We have the dream of our ancestors, which is the ancestral right to be who we are and live as we want to live." Read more from this exclusive and inspiring testimony written by Alex Lucitante, a young indigenous Kofan leader involved in a major victory against gold mining in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

"Without unity, there can be no triumph". On this #HumanRightsDay, Alejo Lucitante, a young indigenous leader from the Ecuadorian Amazon, shares his experiences from the frontlines of a historic victory against gold mining in ancestral Kofan territory. From reviving ancient yagé ceremonies (also known as ayahuasca) to strengthen community resistance to using technology in the defense of their land, the small community of Sinangoe’s path to victory and their struggle ahead is one marked by a fusion of innovation and ancestry – and above all, unified determination to protect their rainforest home from extractivism.
