Our fight: after the murder of four Ashaninka leaders in Peru

In 2014 Edwin Chota and three fellow leaders from indigenous Ashaninka communities in Peru were murdered. Members of his family explain why he campaigned against illegal logging on Ashaninka land and the ongoing threats that they face, even after the murders, while continuing to monitor illegal logging. They describe the difference that demarcating their land could make, and one of the widows of the murdered leaders visits Lima in the struggle to obtain title for their land. The video also has footage of Edwin Chota describing his activism and the threats he had faced for many years as a result.
