“Intensify the Search”: Journalist Dom Phillips and Indigenous Expert Bruno Pereira Missing in Brazil

British journalist Dom Phillips and Indigenous expert Bruno Pereira have still not been found after being reported missing Sunday in one of Brazil’s most remote areas of the Amazon. The pair traveled across the region to interview Indigenous leaders patrolling the area for illegal miners and fishers for Phillips’s upcoming book. “We know that they had been receiving threats. We know that other people are being threatened in this territory,” says Ana Alfinito, Brazil's legal adviser for Amazon Watch. Alfinito also explains how Brazilian President Jair Bolsanero has systematically destroyed protections for Indigenous groups across the Amazon.
