An ultra-right president in Brazil has declared war on the Amazon rainforest and its traditional communities. In Ecuador, indigenous Achuar are fighting against extractivism that is defended by a government who promotes a damaging and unsustainable form of 'development'.

However, the neoliberal wave that is sweeping across Brazil, Ecuador and other countries across the Amazon basin has only strengthened the activists that risk their lives to protect the environment. With the support of the Rainforest Journalism Fund of the Pulitzer Center, in collaboration with journalist and writer Francesc Badia i Dalmases from democraciaAbierta, Engajamundo (Brazil), Kara Solar (Ecuador) and Agenda Propia (Colombia) we are telling inspiring under-reported stories to portrait the resistance in the Amazon rainforest.
