At What Cost?

Stand with defenders of land and our environment

Behind so many of our everyday items are abusive projects, from mines to palm oil plantations. Imposed on communities without their consent, they destroy forests, habitats and whole ways of life. And the people who oppose them - land and environment defenders - are being killed in greater numbers than ever before.

These are the stories of three land and environmental defenders who are fighting for our environment and standing up to the companies that want to take their land. Following the murder of their fathers, both Ramon Bedoya (Colombia) and Marivic ‘Tarsula’ Danyan (the Philippines) have inherited their parents struggles against expanding plantations.
