Indigenous peoples ask for your help!

The Khanty people have lived in Western Siberia in harmony with nature for hundreds years. Now the oil industry has turned on their lands. Oil companies do not take the interests of indigenous people into account; animals die in oil spills which cause reindeer herders to lose their last pastures.

Right now UN experts on the rights of indigenous peoples are preparing recommendations for Russian authorities. They can help preserve the Khanty’s unique culture and avoid unnecessary conflicts with oil companies. Send them a letter, they have to pay attention to this problem!
