Urgent Action Update: Trial Ongoing Against Indigenous Defenders (Argentina: UA 58/17)

Urgent Action
March 28, 2017
Despite the fact that the oral trial scheduled for 20 March against three members of the Chañaral Wichí Indigenous community for defending their territory was suspended, the legal proceedings which violate their right to defence and access to justice remain open.

1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:
  • Urging the authorities to adopt the measures necessary to guarantee due process and access to justice, and particularly the right to defence of Martín Acosta, Dalmacio Acosta y Demetrio Campos;
  • Calling on them to propose an in-depth solution to the Chañaral Wichí community’s land claim and grant collective ownership titles to the territory.
Contact these two officials by 8 May, 2017

2) LET US KNOW YOU TOOK ACTION
Here's why it is so important to report your actions: we record the number and types of actions taken—letters, emails, calls and tweets—on each case and use that information in our advocacy.
