Enviornmental activists killed at the rate of one per week as battle for resources intensifies.
June 19, 2012
A startling number of eco-activists are being killed for trying to protect the environment, as competition over the earth’s finite resources becomes so fierce people are increasingly turning to violence.
The death toll of activists, journalists and citizens involved in protecting natural resources more than doubled over the past three years, a new report shows.
An estimated 711 people were killed over the last 10 years. Last year alone 106 people were killed, according to a report by the human rights group Global Witness.
“It has never been more important to protect the environment and it has never been more deadly.” Billy Kyte said.
