Comments Off on Report Says Number of Environmentalists Killed Has Doubled Over Last 3 Years

Environmental activists sometimes put themselves in harm’s way to protect natural resources, and according to a new report from Global Witness the number of people killed defending the natural world has almost doubled over the last three years. The figures were published in a report called A Hidden Crisis? , which noted that over the past decade, 711 people have been killed “defending the rights of land and forests” in the ever-growing competition for natural resources. If these results are accurate, that means that more than one environmentalist is killed per week. What is even more shocking is that in 2011 alone, the death toll was 106 people.

The starting point for our Gothenburg ride will be Varberg, about 180k north of Helsingborg.
