Description

In the struggle to protect land, water and natural resources Indigenous people have always been on the frontline. 

These conflicts effect us all - if the Amazon burns, if oil is drilled in the Arctic, if Indonesian forests are felled, we all face the dire consequences.

These conflicts are increasingly violent. Hundreds of indigenous of activists are killed every year. Many more are threatened, imprisoned, attacked and silenced. 

Despite their global importance and urgency we rarely hear these stories. This episode is about why, and what we can do about it. Most of all it is an opportunity to hear directly from someone on the frontline; Lottie Cunningham a lawyer and member of the Miskito people in Nicaragua whose lives and land are in dire trouble. 

Ben Leather from the NGO Global Witness also join Lucy and Tom to give context for the silenced stories of indigenous land defenders worldwide.
