Justice for Dom Phillips and Bruno Pereira

Friday, Jun 17, 2022

At the Brazil LAB, we mourn the tragic passing of the British journalist Dom Phillips (1964-2022) and the Brazilian indigenous expert Bruno Pereira (1980-2022) in the Amazon.

"The world-ending violence that has time and again assailed Indigenous communities is now engulfing journalists and engaged public officers, such as Dom and Bruno, who have put their best selves at the service of safeguarding Amazonia and its peoples," João Biehl, Brazil LAB director, stated in the opinion piece Political Savagery and Forced Disappearance in the Amazon.

We express our deep solidarity to Dom’s and Bruno’s families, friends, and colleagues and stand with them in the quest for justice.
