STANDING WITH IMPACTED COMMUNITIES
Indigenous peoples disproportionately bear the toxic burden of our extractive economy, and yet they also protect 80% of the world’s biodiversity. So what can we learn from their leadership, and how can we stand behind them? Join us for a screening of and panel discussion around the film ‘The Condor & The Eagle’ – an award winning documentary following four Indigenous leaders who embark on an extraordinary trans-continental adventure from the Canadian Boreal forests to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle.
Stand.earth is proud to be partnering with The Condor & The Eagle team and an inspiring panel of Indigenous leaders to bring you this event.
This event is inclusive–free to those who can’t afford it. For all others, suggested donations on a sliding scale of $15-100 are requested in lieu of a flat ticket price. The collected funds will support the critically important work done by the CONFENIAE in Ecuador, the AIDESEP in Peru, The Tiny House Warriors in Canada and Stand’s frontline fund:
– The Amazon Sacred Headwaters region is facing imminent threats from the expansion of oil, mining, and other extractive industries. The Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of the Amazon of Ecuador (CONFENIAE), and Inter-Ethnic Association for the Development of the Peruvian Jungle (AIDESEP), are calling for the governments of Ecuador and Peru to stop expanding new fossil fuel and mining development.
– The Tiny House Warriors are standing in peaceful defence of their territory and against the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline, which they say does not have the collective free, prior and informed consent of the Secwepemc peoples. The plan is to block access to pipeline construction by building 10 tiny houses along the 518 km pipeline route.
– Stand.earth and our allies created the Frontline Fund to directly support Indigenous and other frontline activists around the world who are standing up to the oil and gas industry. Since its creation in 2017, the Frontline Fund has provided crucial support to Indigenous communities and other frontline activists from the Arctic to the Amazon.
The donations collected will also support the film impact campaign “No More Sacrificed Communities” and be used to provide small honorariums to our panelists and filmmakers for their time and expertise. Please give generously according to your financial situation.
