José Cláudio Ribeiro da Silva

HRD, Member
Conselho Nacional das Populações Extrativistas – CNS

José Cláudio Ribeiro da Silva was a member of environmentalist group Conselho Nacional das Populações Extrativistas – CNS (National Council of Extractive Populations), and a leader of the Projeto Agroextrativista Praialta-Piranheira (Agro-extractive Project Praialta-Piranheira) in Nova Ipixuna, in Pará State.

The challenges and threats faced by human rights defenders in Brazil remain very high, particularly for those working on issues of land, environment, indigenous peoples, LGBTi rights, corruption and impunity. Many HRDs have experienced death threats, physical attacks, arbitrary arrests and lawsuits. The high number of killings is of particular concern and takes place against a background of widespread impunity.
