Brazil: Amazon land defender Zezico Guajajara shot dead

2 April 2020


Zezico Guajajara is the fifth Amazon forest protector to be killed in six months
A member of a protected tribe in the Amazon has been killed by gunmen, authorities in the Brazilian state of Maranhao say.

The body of Zezico Guajajara, of the Guajajara tribe, was found near his village on Tuesday. He had been shot.

The former teacher was a supporter of Guardians of the Forest, a group formed to combat logging gangs in the area.

The killing - the fifth in six months - increases concerns about violence against Amazon forest protectors.
