Surrounded by a rancher's gunmen, facing an eviction order, and with little access to food or health care, a group of Brazilian Guarani Indians make a dramatic appeal: 'Kill us all, then bury us here… we have decided, all together, not to leave here, dead or alive.' Survival is calling for the Guarani to be allowed to stay on their land, and for all Guarani territories to be demarcated urgently. More on this story →

Thanks to you…
…our campaign for the Awá, Earth's most threatened tribe, has put unprecedented pressure on the Brazilian government to act. Supporters have sent 38,000 emails to the Minister of Justice. The new head of Brazil's indigenous affairs department has made the Awá her top priority. The government has now mapped out some of the areas where the loggers are operating. The UN has asked us for details of the Awá's plight, which we have provided. The tribe's story has been covered in newspapers, magazines and on TV around the world. And the campaign continues, but only because your emails, letters and donations make it happen.

The survivor

After seeing his family massacred by ranchers, Awá man Karapiru ('Hawk') went on the run. What happened next is surely one of the most extraordinary stories you've ever read.

IN PICTURES: meet the Hadza

Just south of the equator, between the soda waters of Tanzania's Lake Eyasi and the ramparts of the Great Rift Valley, live one of Africa's last hunter-gatherer peoples. The Hadza value equality above all else and recognize no leaders.

Survival demonstration in London tomorrow

We are holding a peaceful demonstration opposite Downing Street in London tomorrow to protest against violations of tribal peoples' rights in West Papua, and to challenge the UK Government on its training of anti-terror squads implicated in the killing of Papuan leaders. The protest marks the state visit of Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (known as SBY) to the UK. You are welcome to join us: more details here.
