Indigenous People, who are already struggling against colonialism, systematic disadvantages and poverty, are also being forced to find the energy, resources and support to protect their Ancestral Territories from destruction by corporations and governments.
Many People, not just Indigenous People, are very concerned about already existing environmental damage which has not been properly rectified as well as the vast potential for even more harm being done to land, water and air which we will be requiring for our survival.
If you are one of the growing number of Concerned People who wish to join in or support these efforts please feel free to check out the list I have compiled a list of links to Indigenous Land, Air and Water Defense Actions who are in need of support!
